While a personal history of some cancers does mean that you should never take certain hormones, it is rare that a cancer survivor must avoid all three major hormones in women (Testosterone, Progesterone and Estradiol). It is most common for women who have had Estradiol Receptor Positive Breast Cancer to need to avoid taking Estradiol, but there is significant clinical evidence to show that when the same women takes Progesterone and Testosterone, that their risk of a recurrence of that Breast Cancer lowers significantly (as well as other disease of aging).
