Serum lipoprotein levels were followed for 24 weeks in 21 oophorectomised women treated with conjugated equine oestrogens (0.625 mg/day) and 21 women who had had a natural menopause and were treated with a combined preparation consisting of conjugated equine oestrogens (0.625 mg/day) with the addition of dl-norgestrel (0.15 mg/day) for the last 12 days of each treatment cycle.
