An aunt and a cousin died of breast cancer and I have breast cancer as well. I'm starting to have menopause symptoms, and I know HRT is one of the treatments for it. Does anyone know if we can do HRT if we have a history of breast cancer?

Hi @GoldMamas, thank you for sharing with us. Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you.

Like @GoldMamas said, HRT (hormone replacement therapy) is a common treatment method used to ease perimenopause and menopause symptoms.

Do you know if women with a history of breast cancer take HRT? Have you done it yourself? If so, what was your experience like?
