Come off HRT safely
Are you thinking of coming off HRT? Have you tried without success? Do you want to come off HRT but don’t know how or when? If you need some help, then check out the Summer 2005 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter.
Dr Stuart Drew, physician in charge of the menopause clinic at the BUPA hospital in Portsmouth, provides answers to common questions about coming off HRT: Why should you come off HRT? When should you come off? How should you come off? And what are your options afterwards?
“Many women want to come off HRT, whether for medical reasons or personal choice, but some of them are not sure how to go about this safely and effectively. We want to help women make the right choices by providing the background to coming off HRT as well as giving them the practical help they need,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange.
The Menopause Exchange covers a wide range of subjects like menopausal symptoms, HRT and its alternatives, nutrition and lifestyle and medical conditions (e.g. osteoporosis). It is completely independent – it is not sponsored by any companies and is funded purely by subscriptions. Other articles in the Summer 2005 issue include vitamin basics, stages of the menopause and deep vein thrombosis. The Menopause Exchange has an Ask the Experts panel and fact sheets specifically for members.
