Impact of HRT on Uterine Fibroids Review

This review aimed to ascertain the effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) on leiomyomas development and growth in postmenopausal women.

The literature review on 17 papers concluded that the most appropriate HRT regime is crucial for women with uterine fibroids to avoid leiomyomas growth and the symptoms possibly related to it.

As a result, women with uterine fibroids subjected to HRT should be periodically examined and hormonal treatment should be discontinued if leiomyomas appear to increase in size.
