Some 40% of women will experience hair loss after the menopause. In two thirds this will be all over the scalp. In the remainder, the hair loss is over the front or temples only. Where our AL is sheddingHRT causes hair loss? She only mentioned estrogen, so how would estrogen cause hair loss?
Also my shock when they gave her HRT (in my experience with uterine cancer I was not given hormones for this very reason I copied just a small excerpt online but there is tons of evidence to suggest how this is more harm than good.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is used to treat menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. In younger menopausal women, HRT may also help to maintain bone strength and prevent osteoporosis (weak bones). However, the safety of HRT after endometrial cancer is not known. Some types of endometrial cancer cells may be stimulated to grow by oestrogen, which is the main hormone in some types of HRT. Therefore, HRT has the potential to increase the growth of endometrial cancer cells left behind after treatment (due to microscopic undetected spread outside of the womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries), so promoting tumour recurrence (regrowth). Some doctors may not prescribe HRT after a diagnosis of endometrial cancer due to this theoretical risk. However, most women treated for early-stage endometrial cancer will not have any residual cancer cells following surgery. Menopausal symptoms can severely affect quality of life and early menopause can affect long-term health. HRT could potentially improve quality of life and long-term health, and women treated for endometrial cancer need to be able to balance the risks and benefits of HRT to decide about their treatment. .
