Hormone Replacement

A good review of the current HRT confusion:

Women who are currently taking continuous combined oestrogen-progestogen should not panic, as it is most unlikely to have caused considerable harm. Certainly the risk of breast cancer is not appreciably increased during the first four years, so women wishing to take this therapy for the short term relief of menopausal symptoms should be reassured. However, they need to discuss with their doctor whether they should shift to a different preparation, which could theoretically have a more beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system.
