Is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) safe for Lupus patients?

Yes, HRT is safe since they're not high doses of hormones. There was a clinical trial called SELENA which looked at oral contraceptive hormones, which are higher doses than HRT and they found that they did not trigger any flares in Lupus, so sex hormones especially hormone replacement therapy can be used in Lupus.
