    Hi All~~~I was on HTR for 12 years and then got breast cancer. That was 6 ago and hopefully gone as I had a total mastectomy. I didn't want to fool around with cancer. Needless to say I quit taking hormones at that stage. Lucky that they caught it in stage one and hopefully I will never have another occurance. Now I have a Aunt and two Sister-in-Laws that all got breast cancer and had never taken HTR. So who knows, even the Cancer Doctor did not know for sure if the HTR cause my cancer. I will say I felt better when I was on HTR!!!

    Love and Sunshine to you all~~~~Maggie

    I am glad that you have recovered from breast cancer -no fun at all having to deal with that.

    Sometimes breast cancer is linked to high estrogen levels, which may occur 'naturally' in a person. Do you know what your estrogen levels are now??

    If they are high, you might consider investigating natural progesterone cream to bring all your hormones into balance - under the guidance of a doctor who knows what s/he is doing,
