In brief: No

Most women don't take hormones.
It's fine not to treat the symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes will eventually go away. Some symptoms, like vaginal dryness will persist, but there are other ways to deal with that, or some women use hormone creams or rings that don't carry the risks of oral or patch-delivered hormones.
