This study examines the feelings and thoughts of women who have received hormone replacement therapy (HRT) after a surgically induced menopause. The paper outlines the patients' need for easily accessible information about HRT from professionals. Sometimes the information is not completely clear because of anxiety or misinterpretation. Women are also concerned about side‐effects. Women feel that they can cope better if they understand why certain treatments are carried out, and if they have an informed choice about their method of treatment. Copyright © 1992, Wiley Blackwell.
