Abstract

Attitudes regarding HRT changed significantly in 2002, after the publication of the first results of the Women's Health Initiative study (WHI). The fear of a reported increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and breast cancer resulted in a 50% decrease in the use of HRT. The message delivered to a captive worldwide audience was simple and clear : HRT may only be used for the treatment of severe menopause-related symptoms, for the shortest possible time and at the lowest effective dose.
