An American study out today (18 Oct 2015) confirms the safety of HRT, with beneficial effects being shown in women who continued taking HRT for many years.

The study followed up women who took HRT and compared various outcomes with those in women not taking HRT. While the number of women was small in both groups, this study adds further to studies over recent years that have shown that, when used appropriately, HRT provides more benefits than risks.

Menopause management should be individualised and should include consideration of diet and lifestyle changes but HRT should also be considered as a safe option.
