In brief: Estrogen risks

Estrogens can increase the risk of cancer of the uterus (endometrial cancer).
Taking a progestin as directed by your doctor can help decrease this risk. Tell your doctor right away if you have any unusual vaginal bleeding. In postmenopausal women, Estrogens can increase the risk of cancer of the ovaries, stroke, dementia, and serious blood clots in the legs. (http://www.Webmd.Com/drugs...).
