Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM.
To find "real info" on hormone
replacement therapy and it's
possible links to cancer--I
suggest you reference some of
the following resources:
1.) The Boston
Women's Health Book Collective--the
creators of Our Bodies
Ourselves and Ourselves
Growing Older (see the
Bookstore under "Health").
2.) Books by Penny Budoff,
More Hot Flashes.
Also, I read in Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book: "The question I'm asked more often than any
other in my practice is, "What
effects will taking postmenopausal
hormones have on my risk of
breast cancer?" It's a question
I hate getting, because I simply
don't know what to answer."
I imagine that this is mostly
the response you will get. However,
I also know that most women
I know who have had cancer--have
opted not to take hormone Replacement
Sorry that isn't much help.
I hope you ask as many people/resources
as you can--before making any
decision. Good luck--it doesn't
sound like you have an easy
decision ahead of you.
