Hello, in people who have already had breast cancer, taking hormones can increase the risk of triggering a recurrence, especially if the cancer was hormone-dependent. (That is to say that it was triggered by the hormones of our body), which can be the case of certain cancers of the breast and the uterus)
This is why it is not recommended to use hormones if you have a history of breast cancer!
I hope that I have answered your question correctly!
