Over the years, we've accrued lots of science about the risks and benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy. That's good, yes? Well it would be - it weren't so darn confusing!

Why do different studies seem to say different things?!

Does HRT protect us from cardiovascular disease - heart disease, stroke - or raise the risks?

How about breast cancer? Risk or benefit?

Oh, and endometrial cancer - cancer of the lining of the womb - what about that?!

How do risks change over time, as the years you spend on HRT clock up?

What about different combinations of HRT, with less or more estrogens, less or no progestogens?

Are all estrogens the same?

Does your family history make a difference?

We won't have time to go into naturopathic alternatives to HRT on this occasion - but look out, that program is coming soon!

Join us - to get informed on the risks and benefits of HRT!
