@love4life it’s great that you came to this site for a big decision and hard decision. Are you experiencing problem symptoms? Done lots of research? Had a real good talk with your doctor? I was only on HRT for a few years before all the studies came out so I’m not a great one to talk about what they did for me. You might write down your symptoms and rate them from ‘awful’ to just a ‘nuisance’ and how they affect your life. Then set up an appointment with your doctor. As a nurse, I wouldn’t recommend HRT unless the problems are difficult to manage, and then only after talking with a doctor. You might see a gynecologist—they specialize in menopause. Let us know what you learn and decide!
