There are a number of medications which are different hormones. Sometimes they are helpful but have also been questioned in regards to some cancers. When I was going through menopause I tried the HRT I gained weight so did not take it for very long. My sister, Kathy, had a hysterectomy and due to the fact that she was younger than normal her doctors felt it necessary for her to take them. She passed at age 48 with metastic breast cancer which I believe has been linked to HRT. If your doctor feels that they would help you I believe they give them for a shorter period of time which may be entirely safe. An antidepressant may be an alternative.
