Abstract

Our study found a higher proportion of women using HRT than in other Israeli studies. HRT use was more prevalent among women with improved health status and higher socioeconomic status. The most common reason given for not using HRT was that a physician had not raised the subject, indicating that physician-related factors might contribute to using HRT. Thus, comparing HRT prescribing rates in non-teaching clinics should clarify this factor.
