Can i take oestrogen only HRT for menopausal symptoms?

Why can I not take an eostrogene only hrt for menopausal symptoms, particularly painful joints, particularly in the back and legs. I have been treated for non eostrogene breast cancer which was hr2 driven but tumour was under 6 mm and did not need Herceptin, so am in the clear.
