    Unless your symptoms are totally unbearable you might want to reconsider this. HRT of course has it's risks but women don't seem to realize that whenever they do stop they still have to endure the symptoms. HRT sort of covers up the symptoms, it does not remove them. Whenever you stop the therapy you will still have to go through the symptoms. So if they aren't unbearable you might want to consider trying to stick it out so that you can just get past it.
