TUESDAY, Oct. 18 (HealthDay News) — Women do have options when it comes to treating hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause, and these still include the short-term use of hormone replacement therapy using estrogen alone, experts conclude in a new consensus report.

“Hormone replacement therapy should be considered a very reasonable option for recently menopausal women who have moderate-to-severe hot flashes or night sweats,” said Dr. JoAnn E. Manson, chief of the division of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and the current president of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS).     http://consumer.healthday.com/Article.asp?AID=657949
