Abstract

Objective: To assess compliance with hormone replacement therapy in postmenopausal women. Method: Two groups were compared prospectively: 100 women who sought treatment for menopausal symptoms, and 82 women who had undergone a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and were using estrogen replacement therapy. Results: compliance rates after 6 months were 81.0% and 84.1% in the two groups, respectively, and after 12 months, 73.0% and 80.5%. Conclusions: The high rates are attributed to our investment in patient education of the benefits of treatment and repeated and close follow-up.
