A recent study conducted by the University of Michigan shows that hormone replacement therapy may help to improve the visual memory of postmenopausal women.

While it’s believed that rapid hormonal changes can contribute to memory problems, the research suggests that hormone therapy might help women retain certain memory functions. According to lead author Yolanda R. Smith, MD, associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan Medical School, the findings suggest that even relatively short periods of hormone replacement therapy have effects on the memory systems that may be of benefit to some women during the perimenopausal transition through early post-menopause.

Hormone therapy’s benefits and risks must be thoroughly weighed before choosing it as a treatment, so be sure to ask your doctor if you’re an appropriate candidate.
