Anxiety and HRT?

MenopauseorjustmeMenopauseorjustme Posts: 430 Menopause Nurse Practitioner

Good morning.

I wanted to start a discussion about HRT and anxiety.

I am a nurse practitioner and prescribe HRT. Lately I feel I am going around in circles...I spend time reassuring women, sending them information of its safety profile, explaining... but still women either hold onto their prescriptions as they are scared, do not take it how it has been prescribed and listen to hearsay....

I am asking for suggestions on how I can reassure women more?

Do you think Covid/Lockdown has increased your anxiety?

How many of you are scared about taking HRT?

How many women believe HRT will give them cancer?

What are your real fears over taking HRT?


Any advice, discussions can only help improve women's experiences of menopause and HRT.

Thank you

Best wishes

Diane Porterfield Bourne.
