On The Oprah Winfrey Show Today: Menopause and the Hormone Replacement Debate

Today on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah talks to women about menopause and the hormone replacement therapy that did or didn't work for them.

The average age of menopause is 51, which means there are more than 10 million women in the U.S. that are probably experiencing menopause symptoms right now. Hormone replacement therapy seeks to ease the symptoms of menopause. Some say it works. Others say it's dangerous.

I wonder if bioidentical hormone therapy is going to be discussed. My understanding is that bioidentical very different from synthetic hormone therapy, which makes the difference between whether it has harmful side effects or not.

We'll see when the show airs today...
