Answer

The assessment of HT effects on quality of life most frequently refers to the relief of menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances or genitourinary symptoms and the improvements achieved are excellent for many women. The relief of symptoms may play a major role in the use of and adherence to hormonal therapy regimens and contribute to motivation for long-term use.
