Is HRT going to work for me?
Q I have resisted taking HRT in the hope that my hot flushes would settle, but if anything they are getting worse. My GP tells me that, because of my overall good health, the risks of taking HRT are minimal to me but wouldn’t I just be delaying the menopause? A Lots of women worry that by taking HRT, they are simply delaying menopausal symptoms until the time they choose to stop taking it. In fact, I usually advise women to wean themselves off HRT slowly and by doing this, most find that any menopausal symptoms are less severe and shorter in duration, so therefore much more manageable.
