โ€ขHow your estrogen and progesterone are ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ป๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ may promote cancer causing processesย 

โ€ข The type you use matter! Transdermal patches are beat for estrogen and microionized (oral or vaginal) is best for progesterone. 

โ€ข Hormone Replacement Therapy should not be used within 10 years of hormone positive breast cancer and should be monitored closely with an experienced doctor and oncologist thereafter.
