A When the Women's Health Initiative stopped its estrogen-progestin study prematurely in 2002, after finding that this hormone therapy increased risk for breast cancer, heart attacks, strokes and blood clots, women began looking for alternative menopause treatments. Black cohosh is one popular herbal treatment.
