Thanks Emma. I really like this sentence

"But right up to the age of 60, regardless of when HRT was started, and for many women even after age 60, the benefits outweigh the risk"

What a great article.  How great to get some professionals sharing their experiences.
All those women who have GPs in the dark ages need to print this off and give it to them.

I know this thread is old but I just saw it, and I was really pleased to read it.
Also, I think the patient should have the choice whether to take hrt or not, so long as they are made aware of any risks.
The patient may want to run the risk, which is perfectly ok in my book.
