Abstract

The purpose of the study was to examine the factors associated with hormone therapy (HT) use among women with mobility impairments. A non-probability sample of 188 menopausal women (average age = 53 years) from 38 states was recruited in 2004 for the study. Twenty-two percent of participants were currently taking HT; 33% were past users. Using multinomial logistic regression, this study found that those most likely to be taking HT now or in the past were older women, knowledgeable about HT, had had a hysterectomy, had bone loss, and had their provider's encouragement. Implications for health care providers are discussed.
