    We are all different and no one solution, including hormone therapy (HT), works for everyone.

    As with any medical therapy, the decision to use menopause hormone therapy should be made by a woman in consultation with her healthcare provider, based on:

    –Underlying cause of her symptoms
    –Age
    –Disease risk factors with and without hormone therapy
    –Preferences
    –Cost of treatment options
    –Impact of symptoms on her quality of life

    An informed decision about menopause-related symptom relief also includes knowledge of the risks and benefits of other prescription therapies, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches, and lifestyle strategies, as well as awareness of the option to do nothing at all and let the symptoms take their natural course—which for most women means resolution over time.

    That said, I suffered from terrible menopause symptoms and was a good candidate for HT. I use a transdermal FDA approved bioidentical hormone therapy product, because this was the best decision for me.

    The choice to consider HT is highly individualized.
