Hormone Treatment for Menopause with Dr. Lauren Streicher

Since the 2002 Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) report, women have been cautious about the use of estrogen therapy due to the warnings of an increased risk of cancer and other serious health problems detailed in the WHI report.

Lauren Streicher, M.D. provides facts for common myths about hormone therapy.
