many women are asking how to discontinue HRT
Now that long-term hormone replacement therapy is falling out of favor, many women are asking how to discontinue HRT.
Most women who start HRT for menopausal symptoms can discontinue it a few years later. The risk of breast cancer doesn't seem to be increased in women who take HRT for less than 5 years.
The problem is that some women get severe hot flashes when they stop taking HRT...even if it's been many years since menopause.
