A: Yes, if given in the right way, in the right dose, and for the right reasons. For example, women who still have their uterus usually need to take a small amount of progesterone to balance estrogen supplements. Women who have had a hysterectomy generally don’t need progesterone. Oral hormone supplements are safe, but transdermals such as patches and creams may have advantages, such as being absorbed directly into the blood stream in their pure form.
