    I would stay off HRT as barbarag said. It could develop into another pe. Not sure about black cohosh, recommend you talk to your Haematologist and/or GP as to contra indications.

      was on a high dose of HRT for a long time and I had a big PE attack where they had to use a TPA (? clot buster) and could not wait  for th eclot to disolve on it;s own.  Shortly after I had another PE attack and had another clot buster an have been on warafin permanently.  This past few years my breathlessness has gotten worse and worse and I can not even walk one block.  My Pulminary Hupertension/Cardiologist specialist thinks its from scar tissue from one of the original clots in my lungs.  We are still awaiting a final diognosis on that

    This is something you need to ask the doc who is treating you for the PE.  Some herbal supplements do not mix with blood thinners.  They are all different and there are certain medical websites where you can check interactions between pharmaceutical and herbal remedies and they are pretty complete but I would still ask my doc.
