Reproductive endocrinology: Hormone therapy to treat menopause - Breaking a taboo

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterOther

Abstract

Findings from the Women?s Health Initiative hormone study send the message that clinicians can feel confident prescribing menopausal hormone replacement therapy (MHT) to young menopausal women with moderate-to-severe symptoms who do not have absolute contraindications for hormone therapy. However, MHT is indicated for the alleviation of symptoms, not for chronic disease prevention.
