1169   the veteran is a woman.

37202 the veteran was postmenopausal at the time of the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

36719 the veteran has had hormone replacement therapy at some time.

37206 the veteran had hormone replacement therapy for treatment of an illness or injury which is identifiable.

37205 for treatment of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had hormone replacement therapy for a period of at least the 21 days before the clinical onset of the condition under consideration, a cerebrovascular accident.

37207  the veteran has established the causal connection between hormone replacement therapy and VEA service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

37208   the veteran has established the causal connection between hormone replacement therapy and operational service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

or

37209   the veteran has established the causal connection between hormone replacement therapy and eligible service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

Clinical onset and operational service [37208]

37210 the identified illness or injury for which the veteran had hormone replacement therapy is causally related to operational service.

Clinical onset and eligible service [37209]

37211 the identified illness or injury for which the veteran had hormone replacement therapy is causally related to eligible service.
