women and hormones

I am wondering if those of us who are women and old enough to need hormones have experience with how that part of what is happening affects our BP?

I worry about everything - now its about whether i need to start back on the HRT - but then there is the scare of what it can do!!

thanks to anyone who can offer experience

I'm not old enough to take hormones yet (44), but I have heard from others that they could make bp2 worse. The dr you go to will adjust your meds if you're having symptoms of taking the hormones. Try not to worry. You need both taken care of.
