WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- About a quarter of U.S. women who stopped taking hormone replacement therapy after it was found to raise the risk of heart disease and some cancers have gone back on it, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said Friday.
That is appropriate for women who are having severe symptoms associated with menopause, such as debilitating hot flashes, so long as they take a small dose for the shortest time needed, the group said.
The organization also issued new guidelines saying herbal remedies do not do much for women having difficulty with menopause. And it called for more research into whether hormone replacement therapy may be safer for younger women.
