In the study “Hormone therapy as a possible solution for postmenopausal women with nocturia: results of a pilot trial” by Pauwaert et al, 245 women were recruited and divided by patient choice to estrogen and progesterone (E+P), estrogen-only (ET) if the patient had a hysterectomy, tissue selective estrogen complex (TSEC), and no treatment. A significant reduction in nocturnal voiding frequency was seen in the E+P and TSEC treated patients. This effect was mainly due to improvement in sleep disorders. The ET had a reduction in urgency. More research is needed to explain and confirm the findings.​
