The 'rule' is give it 3 months. TBH pills are now going 'out of fashion'- the latest NICE report recommends transdermal HRT ( patches or gel) for safety and they are also often more effective- the hormones are absorbed better through the skin rather than swallowing a pill when the hormones are lost/ destroyed by digestion.
