In a controlled study, scientists examined the effects of estradiol hormone implants on Mexican women who had undergone menopause and were experiencing adverse side effects as a result of hormone deficiency. The study lasted for 24 weeks and involved 15 women who had undergone menopause and had hysterectomies.

Each woman involved in the study was given 25mg of estradiol through implantation. Estradiol is a naturally-occurring form of the female hormone estrogen. Throughout the course of the study, each woman’s menopausal symptoms were completely relieved, and none of the women experienced any harmful metabolic effects as a result of the estradiol implants.
