Menopause Hormone Therapy: Where We Are Now

Initial findings of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) published in 2002 forever changed the way menopause hormone therapy has been viewed in the United States. After WHI, use of systemic menopause hormone therapy (MHT) decreased by as much as 80 percent among U.S. women. In the following decade and half, additional data derived from WHI coupled with new research findings resulted in confusion and misunderstandings for patients and clinicians alike on the appropriate use of MHT to manage menopause. This presentation will blend the findings of WHI with newer learnings and provide a practical approach to using MHT. 

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the benefits and risks associated with menopause hormone therapy.
