Women will ask you about hormone therapy (HT) options and how long to continue them for menopausal symptoms.
Choice of treatment. For hot flashes, consider a systemic estrogen...oral, transdermal, or vaginal ring (Femring). Think about a patch, gel, or spray to possibly lower the risk of blood clots.
Use the lowest dose possible to control symptoms...and explain it can take up to 12 weeks to see the full effect.
