A new study suggests that there may be a cognitive benefit from a longer reproductive window complemented with hormone therapy.

The study, published in October in Menopause, followed over 2 000 post-menopausal women in the United States over 12 years and focused on the duration of a woman’s exposure to oestrogen, taking into account such factors as time of menarche to menopause, number of pregnancies, duration of breastfeeding, and use of hormone therapy. The researchers examined the association between oestrogen and cognitive decline.
