If you’ve had breast cancer and are wondering whether you’ll be able to take HRT, this booklet is for you. Doctors may have told you that HRT is too risky, and you may not have had the opportunity to discuss what your options are. Don’t worry, we are here to explain it all: symptoms you might have, types of HRT, the risks and benefits of treatment when there’s a history of breast cancer, and how you can decide what is right for you and changes you might want to make in the future.
