Patterns of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) use over time and predictors of initiating or discontinuing use were examined in a longitudinal study.
A cohort of 2,425 women aged 45-55 years identified from a population-based random survey in Massachusetts in 1981-1982 was followed by six telephone interviews, 9 months apart.
Cohort participants were either premenopausal (66.8%) or in early perimenopause (33.2%). During the study, prevalence of use was low overall (12.3%) and was considerably higher for surgical menopause (45%) than for peri (9.3%), natural (4.5%), or premenopause (1.5%). Predictors of HRT uptake and discontinuation (from time t-1 to time t) were examined by repeated-measures logistic regression, stratified by surgical status.
