Over recent years, reanalysis of large amounts of data has led to a better understanding of the risks of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Evidence now shows that the risks are managable and, for most women, are outweighed by the benefits including proven reduction of hot flashes, and improved urogenital, bone and cardiovascular health.

"One of the longest, largest randomized study on HRT found no significant rise in the risk of premature death for women who took HRT, compared with those who took placebos."

Dr. JoAnn Manson of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard

The research included 27,000 women over 18 years (Journal of the American Medical Association, 2017)
