Oral and transdermal estrogen are available as estrogen alone estrogen combined with progesterone. Whether oral or transdermal, all available prescription estrogen replacement medications are effective in reducing hot flash and severity. However, long - term studies of women receiving oral preparations of combined hormone therapy with both estrogen and progesterone were halt when it was discovered that these women had increased risk for heart attack, stroke, and breast cancer when compared with women did not receive HT. Later studies of women taking estrogen therapy alone show that estrogen was associated with increased risk for stroke, but not for heart attack or breast cancer. Estrogen therapy alone, however, is associated with increased risk of developing endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women who have not had their uterus surgically remove.
