All types of HRT containing oestrogen have been associated with a small increase in the risk of stroke (in the region of 1:5000). Femolene does not contain oestrogens, but does contain oestrogen-like substances so this risk will apply as well, but may be even smaller. It is a question of weighing up a very small risk of stroke vs your quality of life.
