In brief: Not likely

Hormone replacement therapy remains one of the most effective means of controlling and sometimes eliminating these symptoms.
Our current thinking is that for healthy women in their 50s -- women who have not had breast cancer or a history of blood clots -- and have been experiencing the symptoms of menopause for less than 10 years, hormone therapy can be very effective for symptom relief.
