Day 28 Commitment, Breast Cancer Fact

Day 28 of 31

The risk for breast cancer increases when a woman has been using HRT for more than five years.  The largest risk is when both estrogen and progesterone are given together.  Women who have had a hysterectomy and are taking pills containing estrogen alone are at less of a risk.
