In brief: Consider risks

There are risks to taking hormones, including increasing the chances of a stroke or heart attack and the benefits should be weighed against the risks.
Many women choose to take their chances and continue on the hormones but most medical professionals recommend weening off of them to decrease your risks. You should discuss this with your physician.
