Is prescription hormone replacement therapy after a full hysterectomy recommended?

Yes: Hormone replacement (hrt) should be given to all women unless they have significant contraindications. Unfortunately the medical sentiment has changed against hrt over the last decade. It is coming back but physicians are still very reluctant. Many benefits and few risks if done in non-oral fashion. Especially very important if the hysterectomy was done before age 50. Don't wait seek hrt.
