Resumen

El uso de la terapia de reemplazo hormonal oral ha sido una controversia en los últimos años, como consecuencia de una serie de estudios aleatorios que contradicen los lineamientos anteriores. Algunos autores refi eren sus observaciones respecto a estas investigaciones, así como las limitaciones. Sin embargo, se demuestra que las únicas indicaciones que persisten para su uso son el tratamiento del síndrome menopáusico, al menor tiempo y la menor dosis posible, y como segunda elección, la osteoporosis. El objetivo de esta revisión es ofrecer un apoyo a los profesionales en medicina que prescriben terapia de reemplazo hormonal en mujeres menopáusicas mayores de 50 años.
