There is no recommended age.
The american colllege of ob-gyn recommends using HRT as short of a time as needed to control symptoms. This will be different for every woman. A recent study came out showing that the average length if time from menopause onset to the end of hot flushes is about 10 years, but again there is much variance between people.
