Dr Sue is passionate about providing good evidence based guidance.
After the "Million Women Study 2000" many GPs stopped prescribing HRT and have never restarted.
HRT is safe with many benefits for the right women. It is important to evaluate these risks first so an informed decision can be made.
Dr Sue recommends checking out Dr Louise Newson's (a UK GP) website menopausedoctor.co.uk . As well as good evidence based facts and dispelling some myths, there is a good section on how to live well throughout menopause, without medication, using lifestyle changes, which is well worth trying.
The study did show an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. However, subsequent research has proven these cases were older women with pre-existing risk factors for heart disease.
