Is primolut a HRT medication? On chemotherapy for colon cancer

I have been prescribed Primolut nor 10 mg, and I am a bit concerned as I have been fighting colon cancer for 18 months, I have had 2 Ops and 12 months of chemo and I am now under controls and at the moment good. My concern is that my mother died of breast cancer at 60 and I would like to know if Primolut is HRT? and should I be taking it? I also have very bad blood circulation and have had an Op on my leg veins ,which was not a sucsess. I am eating very little but I am very bloated especially my face. Please help me. Thank you .

Dear Araba,
you say that you have suffered from colon cancer and received chemotherapy for it. primolut 10mg daily is not a HRT. May you had some menstrual problem after chemotherapy for which this drug is prescribed. You dont have to take this drug for a long term basis if it is so. your doctor must be knowing better for what problem he has orescribed primolut. As such long term usage of hormones patients are prone to get clotting defects and fluid retention in the body and in the latter stages malignancy as wel. If the advantage overweighs the disadvantage you may have to continue it. Your treating doctor knows it better.
