I recommend googling the name of this medication and see if you can
find out what the possible side effects of this drug are and see if there
is any mention of an association with breast cancer. I found a helpful
site for looking up side effects of various drugs is www.rxlist.com .
Thank you so much for your reply and useful information! I will definitely check it out, but there was some info with the drug. My doctor mentioned taking these hormones could increase the chances of breast cancer, but very minimally because of the low dosage.
You're very welcome. I'm glad you found my reply useful. Anything that
can even minimally reduce your chance of breast cancer is worth taking.
One of my family is a breast cancer survivor. Please do not let any
doctor talk you into taking an HRT ( hormone replacement therapy).
It's not well known but there is a possible link between HRT and breast
cancer. I actually read this somewhere and I believe it. Eve
