60 hysterectomized patients under 40 years old, who all had at least one intact ovary and still complained of climacteric symptoms, were treated with estriol, conjugated estrogens, estrogen-gestagen sequential therapy or an extract from cimicifuga racemosa after randomized distribution into 4 equal groups. Therapy was controlled after 4, 8, 12 and 24 weeks with a modified Kupperman-Index that also included trophic disorders of the genitals, and also by serum-FSH and -LH measurement. In all groups, the modified Kupperman-Index became significantly lower, the parallel decrease of gonadotropins could not be confirmed statistically, however. There were no significant differences between groups concerning therapy success.
