What are the options in hormone therapy for women with history of blood clots.?

None. I believe hormone replacement therapy including Estrogens is contraindicated in patients with history of blood clots. Consult with your gynecologist to discuss all the options.
Depends. Hrt is controversial in the patient with a history of blood clots and depends on the clinical situation. Overall goals are important and hormones needed depend on uterine status (presence or absence). Transdermal or non oral Estrogens have been shown not to increase clotting factors and could be used with Aspirin & close monitoring and the absolute blessing of your doctors not on your own.

Is there a lower risk for blood clots when taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo? Safer than Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)? Can't seem to find how much hormone is in Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo

Clot risk. The risk of clot is slightly higher in YAZ (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) do due the type of progesterone in it. It has nothing to do with the dose really. If for example you had a clot on Ortho tri cyclen, no one would suggest you use tri cyclen lo instead. Blood clot risk also lowers after 3 months of use just like it does for menopausal women on hormone replacement therapy. Every OCP in the US is low dose except for one. Read more...
