A study found that hormone replacement therapy doesn't improve postmenopausal women's emotional and mental states and sex lives. The new study, which followed 16,000 women, debunks a previous study that shows the risk of heart disease and cancer linked to the use of combined estrogen-progestin treatment outweighed possible benefits. "The average woman will not experience an improvement in her quality of life by taking this pill," said Baylor College of Medicine's Dr. Jennifer Hayes, who spearheaded the study.
