Menopause, HRT and blood clots [Booklet]
Published: 26th March 2021
When women reach the menopause, many suffer with debilitating symptoms due to a reduction in hormones. The most effective treatment to reduce these symptoms is HRT. Unfortunately, many women have been told incorrectly that HRT is not suitable for them because they have a history (or are at a high risk) of developing a blood clot.
This booklet has been written jointly by Dr Newson and the charity Thrombosis UK. Together, they outline the reasons why the link between HRT and clots was raised historically, and explain why it does not hold true anymore.
