This study estimated the prevalence of and the factors associated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) counseling.
We analyzed the responses of 3170 women, aged 40 to 60 years, from the 1994 National Health Interview Survey.
The prevalence of HRT counseling was 43.6%. Women were more likely to report having received HRT counseling if they were White, older, more educated, had had a hysterectomy, had experienced menopausal symptoms, and had a regular source of care.
More attention should be directed at counseling non-White women and women with less formal education.
Reducing the barriers to having a regular source of care appears to increase the likelihood of receiving HRT counseling.
