    There are a number of ways in which menopausal women can accomplish symptom relief, maintain a healthy heart, and keep their ______ strong without conventional oestrogen replacement if they are motivated to do so.

    • A.

      Bones

    • B.

      Body

    Correct Answer
    A. Bones
    Explanation
    Menopausal women can accomplish symptom relief, maintain a healthy heart, and keep their bones strong without conventional estrogen replacement. Estrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining bone density, and during menopause, there is a decline in estrogen levels, leading to a higher risk of osteoporosis. To counter this, women can engage in weight-bearing exercises, consume a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, and consider alternative treatments like hormone therapy or medications to promote bone health.

    All women on oestrogen replacement who have a uterus need a progestogen to counteract the possible excess build-up of tissue that oestrogen may cause in the uterus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Women who are on oestrogen replacement therapy and have a uterus need to take a progestogen as well. This is because oestrogen alone can cause the lining of the uterus to thicken, which may lead to an increased risk of endometrial cancer. Progestogen helps to counteract this effect by causing the lining to shed during the menstrual cycle. Therefore, it is necessary for women with a uterus to take both oestrogen and progestogen to maintain a healthy balance and reduce the risk of uterine complications.

    Being on HRT for a number of years and you now have decided to get off it, you should do this over a one- month period to allow your body time to readjust.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if someone has been on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for a number of years and wants to discontinue it, they should do so gradually over a one-month period. However, this statement is incorrect. The decision to discontinue HRT should be made in consultation with a healthcare professional who can provide guidance based on individual circumstances. Abruptly stopping HRT can lead to withdrawal symptoms and potential health risks. Therefore, it is important to follow the advice of a healthcare professional when discontinuing HRT.

    • A.

      Vitamins

    • B.

      Chocolates

    • C.

      Coffee

    Correct Answer
    A. Vitamins
    Explanation
    Menopausal women need extra vitamins and extra calcium to support their changing hormonal needs and maintain bone health. A new diet that focuses on natural sources of these nutrients can provide the necessary nourishment for the body during this stage. Chocolates and coffee do not provide the essential vitamins and calcium required during menopause, making them incorrect choices.
