Menopause Spotlight

When less is more
When taking HRT, it is important to be careful with the dose of estrogen. Generally, the starting point should be a low dose, since symptoms often respond well to a low dose and there is no need to take more than required. Higher doses are more likely to cause side effects. Any subsequent increase in dose should be gradual and dictated by symptoms rather than by blood tests. Very high doses are rarely required. See our decision tree showing types of HRT and including advice on poor symptom control and managing side effects at » Decision Tree Flow Chart
