Abstract

Recommendations regarding menopausal hormone therapy continue to evolve as more studies are completed. Progestogens, indicated for endometrial protection in women on estrogen therapy who have an intact uterus, seem to confer greater health risks than estrogen alone. Thus, it is important for clinicians to be well informed when prescribing these medications. This review focuses on the different types and use of progestogens in women with an intact uterus using systemic menopausal hormone therapy.
