摘要Compliance with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been extensively studied in western countries. However, there is little data concerning women in Asian countries. A retrospective study was performed to determine compliance in a group of Hong Kong Chinese women who commenced HRT over a 2 year period. Two years after the commencement of HRT, 68.3% were still taking HRT, although not always in the original formulation. The highest drop out rate occurred during the first 6 months. Factors which were associated with a higher degree of compliance were young age at menopause and at the time of initial consultation and the use of unopposed HRT. A number of significant medical problems were identified during the 2 years of follow up which may have remained otherwise undetected. Compliance with HRT appears to be comparable to that reported in other western specialist centres. Nearly 9% of women who stopped HRT did so because other doctors told them that they did not need the treatment and another 6.5% because of the fear of breast cancer.
