MHT after endometrial mischief

Dr Jim Tsaltas

Menopause Hormonal Therapy (MHT) is regarded as the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms. However, there are ongoing concerns regarding the use of hormones after treatment for conditions such as endometrial and other gynaecological malignancies and endometriosis. The understanding of how to implement these therapies amongst clinicians is poorly understood and as a consequence, menopausal symptoms are either overlooked or inadequately managed.  In this lecture we hope to look at some strategies to manage these issues in the most appropriate manner.
