Who should avoid hormone replacement therapy?

This type of treatment is not suitable for women with breast cancer, heart disease or a history of blood clots.

Also, women who don't suffer from menopause symptoms should not follow hormone therapy treatment as a way to prevent memory loss or strokes. Instead, talk to your doctor about other medications you can take or lifestyle changes you can make for long-term protection from these conditions.
