Is It Due to Menopause???

As our population ages, some pharmaceutical companies, some magazine and book publishers, and yes, some doctors will try to benefit by promoting information and products geared to women approaching menopause or who are in menopause. Some of this information may be accurate, some not. And some info may simply be to be researched further. Some of the products may be beneficial, some not. And some products may need to be tested further.

As perimenopausal or menopausal women, it is important that we have a basic understanding of our bodies at this time of life so we can make informed choices when it comes to our health.

Myths abound when it comes to menopause. For that reason, it may be helpful to review the definition of menopause, symptoms, bone loss, treatments, hormone therapy, premature menopause and postmenopause, and other menopausal concerns from a relatively unbiased source...the following is a governent link addressing some of the issues associated with menopause:

This information is made available by the National Women's Health Information Center (NWHIC) is considered by some to be the most reliable and current information resource on women’s health today. Because NWHIC is sponsored by the federal government, as a service of the Office on Women’s Health within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, they don’t benefit by selling you something or promoting commercial interests (unlike doctors, pharmaceutical companies, medical centers, etc.). Their purpose is simply to help you get the information you can trust on a variety health issues of interest to women.
