Confusing Q: Hrt is by definition estrogen. Are you suggesting that your doctor is going to increase the estrogen portion of your hrt? To my knowledge, i haven't heard of estrogen being used to help with breast tissue loss. Hrt should be used primarily to ameliorate the symptoms of menopause like insomnia, hot flashes, vaginal dryness. If breasts are your prime concern, how about implants?
