Menopause Hormone Therapy (MHT) has been demonstrated scientifically to reduce menopausal symptoms. Experts think these hormones are effective and safe for many women in their 40s and 50s with symptoms of menopause. However, for each individual woman its benefits must be weighed against the increased risk of side effects such as thromboembolism (blood clots) and breast cancer.  You should not take hormones if you have had breast cancer, a heart attack, a stroke, or a blood clot. Any woman taking MHT should be reviewed regularly by her doctor.

Doctors may prescribe other drugs to relieve symptoms. Anti-depressants can reduce hot flashes and depression. Even women who are not depressed can take them to relieve hot flashes.
