Menopause and you: hormone replacement therapy

Main Line Health January 16, 2012 By Beverly Vaughn, MD

Women commonly ask, “Do I need hormone therapy?” This is often followed by questions of which women are the best candidates and is it safe. This is a complex topic and requires discussion before making a decision to use hormone therapy or not. Dr. Joan Zeidman reviews the guidelines for hormone therapy use and answers many of the questions that women have.


This article is part of Menopause and You, a web-based program sponsored by Women’s Health Source. It is intended as an information resource providing guidelines for women. As always, check with your own health care provider with your specific concerns and questions.
