Women’s Health Initiative and HRT (2001)

Position Statements

Women’s Health Initiative and HRT, June, 2001

The SMCR adopted a resolution stating “Whereas menopause is a normal phase of every woman’s life and not an estrogen deficiency condition . . .” the term “Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)” should no longer be used.”  Instead the SMCR strongly urges that menopausal treatment with estrogen and progestin or progesterone be called “Ovarian Hormone Therapy (OHT).”

Approved by vote of the membership at the business meeting held on June 8, 2001 during the 14th Conference of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research in Avon, Connecticut
