The menopause is a hot topic in the media with increasingly open and honest conversations about this often-troublesome time of life. But there is still a lot of misleading or inaccurate information out there.
The Menopause Exchange
In the Winter 2021-22 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, Dr Claudine Domoney, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, debunks the most common menopause myths. She gives science-based facts on a wide range of topics such as the average age of the menopause, bleeding patterns with HRT, blood tests to check your hormones and the use of contraception at the menopause.
“Listening to old wives’ tales or reading scaremongering reports can discourage some women from needing the medical help and advice they need,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “It’s important to make sure that women have accurate, unbiased and up-to-date information to rely on. This is why I set up The Menopause Exchange in the first place.”
The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women, men and healthcare professionals. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, complementary practitioners, pharmacists, dietitians etc.
Other articles in the Winter 2021-22 issue of The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter include inflammation at the menopause, oestrogen and HRT, and ‘When was your last blood pressure check?’, as well as news, Ask the Experts Q&As and information about Norma Goldman’s webinars.
Menopause webinars: Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange, has been presenting talks and workshops on the menopause for over 22 years. Her in-depth knowledge has helped thousands of women enjoy a more comfortable menopause. She’s now hosting her own regular webinars via Zoom.
Norma’s ‘Understanding the menopause’ webinar is suitable for women at or approaching the menopause, women who have had a premature menopause (before age 40) or a hysterectomy, or anyone with an interest in women’s midlife health. Post-menopausal women can attend presentations too. If women join the webinar, they’ll be able to ask questions, receive a factsheet and hear about other women’s experiences.
