The flip flop on hormone replacement therapy – is it safe or isn’t it has left us women in a state of confusion. After endless nights of sweats and mood challenges many of us are left with the personal decision of whether to ask our doctors for the medications. What to do? I, for one, decided to take my life into my hands and leap. I put on a patch of progesterone and voila – I felt fantastic. With the patch on I was able to sleep and I felt more balanced and had greater energy. I kept this patch on for a year and have suggested to many friends that this is a dream solution. Despite the risks, I decided it was worth it. I was thrilled to read the Wall Street Journal’s article on September 27th that gave permission to women that the door to HRT was open again. Thought I would pass it along in case you missed it.
