Hormone Pills After Menopause

Should women take hormone pills after menopause? More and more studies point to the benefits of type of treatment and more and more doctors recommend it. But what do women doctors choose when it's their turn?

The British Medical Journal now reports that more than three times as many women physicians have used hormones following menopause than women in general. The percentage did drop a little with age but still remained very high compared to all women.

You and your doctor should decide what's best for you.
