birth control/ERT and symptom management

Recommended Posts

What is the current status of research regarding the use of birth control pills/ ERT for perimenopausal/menopausal women for symptom management (and possible neuroprotection)?  I personally am perimenopausal and experience significant worsening of symptoms immediately prior to and during menstruation.  Thanks much

Thanks for the question.  There was some recent interest in this topic and especially estrogen but I am not aware of a large well designed study that has shown neuroprotection in the human with Parkinson's disease.  There have been some animal studies.  There are of course several potential worrisome effects from estrogen so be sure you talk with your doc.
