Valerie E. -

This was a nice summary. I was surprised that you did not address the topic of “bio identical” hormones, topical progesterone, topical testosterone, and hormone pellets (usually in the context of getting special hormone testing done).
I have a handful of patients who request these tests and therapies. When I decline to provide them, the patients often get them prescribed by other physicians or naturopaths. ACOG has a helpful paper about the risks and limitations of these therapies. I think it should be briefly covered in a review of HRT.

Thanks so much, Valerie. We always want to cover so much more than we have time for! We appreciate your feedback, and I'll share it with Molly for our future recordings.
