The decision to stop taking bioidentical hormones is highly individualized and should be based on health status, symptoms, and personal preferences. Typically, women may continue BHRT as long as the benefits, such as relief from menopausal symptoms and improved quality of life, outweigh the risks. This decision is usually made through regular consultations with a healthcare provider who can assess ongoing needs and monitor for potential side effects. Some women may choose to continue BHRT well into their senior years, while others may decide to stop earlier. For residents of Edmonton, ongoing assessments and consultations can help tailor the duration of BHRT.
