Do you have questions about menopause? Are you ever curious about hormone therapy treatments? You’re not alone! Every year over two million women in America alone enter into menopause, and most have questions. The Women’s Health Research Institute wants to provide answers with our informational menopause website: menopause.northwestern.edu. This site is tailored to the needs of women, offering up-to-date information on menopause and symptom management. The site even offers a personalized “Menopause Self Assessment,” which enables women to evaluate their own symptoms and health status that they can then print out and share with their healthcare providers.
Menopause marks the transition in every woman’s life when menstruation and fertility decline and eventually end. Menopause symptoms affect women differently, so treatments vary from woman to woman. The many stages of menopause may seem overwhelming, but women should find comfort in the numerous treatment options developed by leading researchers and clinicians. Empowering women with educated choices regarding their health provides them with the tools to live longer and stronger in their journey during and after menopause.
