abstract

  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is not benign; its adverse effects can be as serious as the health threats it was designed to prevent. An element of trial and error exists when tailoring a patient treatment regimen. Lack of clinician knowledge and poor clinician-patient communication can result in incorrect or suboptimal HRT decisions. This article presents a comprehensive assessment of options for women entering menopause; recent epidemiologic findings and various HRTs are discussed.
