Premarin (conjugated estrogen)
Q: I have been on Premarin (conjugated estrogen) for ten years
and would now like to stop taking it. Is this a good idea? Would sure like
an answer. Thank you!
Dr. Donnica: This is a question that should be addressed by your
physician. Only your doctor can give you the best advice about what's right
for you. While there has been a lot of news lately about the risks of HRT increasing
slightly after 10 years, in general, I don't recommend that women who have benefited
from estrogen stop taking it just because they're hit their 10th anniversary
if nothing else has changed. For more complete information about HRT, click
