Help researchers at the University of Pennsylvania determine if taking estradiol (a form of estrogen) together with Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy benefits women experiencing symptoms of PTSD.
PE is a first-line, evidence-based talk therapy that focuses on helping individuals with PTSD process memories of trauma. Previous findings have shown that the hormone estrogen facilitates people learning not to fear things they had feared before. This study will evaluate whether supplementing PE therapy with estradiol pills improves fear extinction outcomes in women with PTSD.
Study participants will receive PE therapy at no cost and may see a reduction in their symptoms.
