what's hormone replacement therapy (hrt) in 2012?

SAFE for most women

Hormone
HRT (and its reputation and safety) constantly changes as new studies come out. Here is the BEST 2012 review: In patients with no INCREASED risk of breast cancer, heart disease, or blood clots, TRANS-DERMAL HRT (patch, cream, gel) is relatively safe, and safe for just a few years, but as FEW as necessary. An even BETTER review: talk to your own doctor.
