“The main takeaway from this study is that all hormone therapies are not the same, and it’s not that one is good and another is bad,” says Stephanie Faubion, MD, MBA, the director of the center for women’s health at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Faubion was not involved in this research. “We need to take these differences into account when we look at each individual woman, to determine what therapy is best according to her needs and what her risk factors are,” she adds.
