ACOG Practice Bulletin No. 28: Clinical Management Guidelines for Obstetrician-Gynecologists. Use of Botanicals for Management of Menopausal Symptoms

American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Obstet Gynecol. .

Abstract

Lack of confidence in the espoused benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) coupled with a significant array of side effects of HRT, results in fewer than 1 in 3 women choosing to take HRT. The use of alternatives to conventional HRT has become more accessible and acceptable to many women. As more women choose these alternatives, physicians are confronted with the challenges of how to advise patients about alternative medicine and how to determine which therapies may be safe and effective. This document will examine available scientific information on alternative therapies for treatment of menopausal symptoms and provide recommendations on efficacy and potential adverse consequences.
