A meta study of data from more than 3000 women who were prescribed HRT between 1989 and 1997 has found that women do not want to take HRT on a long term basis. The researchers found that after four years, only 20% of the women were still taking HRT.  The study showed that it was the younger women who were more likely to continue with the treatment and these were presumed to be those who had a hysterectomy or had a premature menopause.
