News on HRT change your life?

  1. A friend of mine is already feeling "the change" after the study results are in. Has anyone else decided to quit their hormone replacement therapy after findings released? (She won't even take soy to help alleviate symptoms!)

    Scary stuff!

    I think the jury is still out on this one and personally intend to use HRT when I reach menopause, unless there is a better alternative presented to me. WHY? Can't stand being hot NOW, and osteo is a HUGE HUGE HUGE risk factor w/me. I really hope they figure out the levels needed and how to regulate them by the time I may need it. However, I do plan to visit a midwife regarding menopause care just to see what all the options may be for me to avoid the dread osteoporosis. Got to be a way if HRT is not it.

    By the way, the news has not scared my cousins and mother from it. They grew up watching my poor grandmother's back go to heck and eventually be unable to walk due to her osteo. It is indeed a thing one never forgets.
