Re: I need pros & cons of HRT. I haven't decided yet

Hello!

You're smart to ask for input and to seek out information to help with your decision.

I was 46 when I had my hysterectomy. At age 54 now, I'm still using hormone therapy and plan to continue using it forever, so long as there's no sound medical reason for me to discontinue it. My doctor is fully on board with this plan. I am careful to keep up on my well woman checkups which include a mammogram, breast and pelvic exams and a vaginal vault smear (Pap). I also have periodic DEXA scans to keep track of any bone loss. So far, so good!

This is an important discussion to have with your doctor. For information to help you with that discussion, check out the articles in this link: Hormone Jungle Articles.

Let us know what you decide, okay?
