Are you AFRAID of hormone replacement therapy?
A woman called my pharmacy the other day, complaining of symptoms of menopause – night sweats, insomnia, vaginal issues, irritability and the dreaded hot flashes. She’s a mess! She wants her doctor to do something about the menopause monster that is messing up her life, but she’s afraid. She’s heard that hormone replacement therapy can help with all that stuff, BUT she’s read on the internet that hormones cause breast cancer, heart attacks, blood clots or a bunch of other frightening side effects.
Isn’t hormone replacement therapy DANGEROUS?
Instead of “a woman called my pharmacy the other day,” I should have said that several women called . . . several women every week . . . sometimes several every day . . . worried about all the dangers of the hormone replacement therapy they are either considering, are currently taking or have stopped taking.
