Minivelle is bio-identical estradiol, and is not known to cause cancer, particularly if you are also getting progesterone to balance your hormonal profile. The much-publicized Women's Health Initiative study that scared scads of women into discontinuing HRT of any kind, was significantly flawed in that it studied older women who were well beyond the onset of menopause, used synthetic estrogen derived from the urine of pregnant mares, and many of whom smoked or had other significant health problems when the study commenced. Furthermore, Minivelle and other estradiol patches do not go through the liver, another safety plus. Make sure your subscribing physician monitors your blood levels and is experienced in working with bio-identical hormone replacement for best (and safest) results.
