We’ve just finished listening to BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour this morning here in the Menopause Support office.
It was a well balanced programme as it looked at both HRT as a treatment option as well as the more natural approaches such as nutrition and acupuncture. Several women rang in and said what had worked for them – many were lifestyle changes and complementary therapies.
But what came across loud and clear was that women want reliable, trustworthy information so that they can make their own decision on what to use to help them through their menopause. They want support from other women and time to discuss different approaches so that they can decide what’s the right one for them.
So that’s where we come in – here at Menopause Support you can get evidence based advice through the Menopause Support Programme. Look at the advice section on our website www.menopausesupport.org.uk, download the free information, listen to a podcast or get the top tips. Or if you want to hear from other women going through it go on the chat forum, a topic talk or come to a workshop.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you soon. To listen to the programme click on the audio link below. The Women’s hour program starts after 11 seconds into the show.
