Hormones are powerful drugs. When you are on therapy, you have a responsibility to see your physician regularly, at least annually. Many physicians with whom I discussed this point prefer to see their ERT and HRT patients twice each year and, certainly, to be contacted if any changes occur between visits. You need to manage your own midlife health care in partnership with your physician. Don’t be a no-show!
Can a menopausal woman on hormone replacement THERAPY BECOME PREGNANT?
Usually not, because the ovaries are no longer delivering eggs to be fertilized. However, gynecologists caution you to use contraception for at least a year after your last period, just in case your ovaries decide to turn on one last time. Surprise!
