Deciding to go the menopause hormone replacement therapy route has become a confusing decision for many women today simply because there are so many changeable opinions on its safety.

Has the publicity surrounding the risks connected with menopause hormone replacement therapy gone a little too far? Or more to the point have many women become afraid of even going down that route because of the documented risks?
Who is in the best position to offer advice?

Believe it or not your doctor is in most cases pretty well trained to pass on advice about menopausal matters. When it comes to deciding what course of treatment you should consider you would be intelligent in search of medical counsel before going off on an unplanned perception of some report you have read or on the mis-guided advice of a friend.

Too many women are suffering in silence dealing with menopausal symptoms and don’t have to. Your doctor should be your first point of contact. Even if menopause hormone replacement therapy is not appropriate for you, you won’t know waiting you get expert advice.
