Our expert says:
HRT is the best for relieving menopausal symptoms. There is a slightly higher risk of breast cancer and, if she has risk factors, a small increase in the risk of strokes. However, as with all medications, she will have to weigh up the risks versus the benefits. It is no use living till 90 and being miserable every day, so it really depends how much the hot flushes affect her life.
