Title BMS consensus statement on HRT.
Date Updated June 10th 2005
Full Story A consensus statement on HRT has been issued by the British Menopause Society Council and concludes that HRT still has a
major role for treatment of vasomotor and urogenital symptoms, and for prevention of osteoporosis. Women with an intact
uterus should be given oestrogen combined with progestogen and treatment choice should be individualised, with respect to
type, dose, route and duration. When treatment is
chosen appropriately, it is likely that benefit outweighs harm. Finally, it is NOT thought that changes in the use of HRT in the UK
are required in light of the WHI results, and that further reports are expected.
