Q) I just read a new study in the newspaper linking hormones and breast cancer! Should I stop taking my hormones??”
A) Because of the recent news attention to this study, we have actually posted Dr. Mahmud’s response on our website. Many women are very confused (and scared) about the information, but you need to know that this is NOT new information. It is a break-off of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study done years ago. Also, the “hormones” they are referring to are NOT hormones. They are the same drugs we have been warning against for years – Premarin and Provera. As always, it’s important to be an informed consumer and understand exactly what they are discussing. We continue to prescribe bio-identical hormones with every bit of confidence we are doing so safely.
