World menopause day – 18th October 2007

Susan Russell Publishing and Menopause Matters have joined forces to put women in control of their menopause with an innovative new diary and a one million woman survey.

“The Hot Flush Diary” from Susan Russell Publishing, (a husband and wife team) enables you, as a woman, to take greater control of your menopause. With it you can track the severity and patterns of symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings and understand whether influences such as life events, diet or stress make them worse.

Until now there has not been a clear way for women to see if the treatments they are taking to control their menopausal symptoms are really working. Whether you’re taking Red Clover or HRT, “The Hot Flush Diary” with its unique symptom-tracking chart will allow you and your health care provider to see if your treatments are really benefiting you.

“Until now purpose designed diaries have been lacking. This book provides the tool that has been missing.” - Dr Heather Currie, Consultant Gynaecologist and Managing Director of Menopause Matters (the most popular UK menopause website).

Dr Currie believes women should be encouraged to take an active role in their menopause but she is concerned that negative stories in the media have influenced women’s attitudes towards treatments such as HRT. Dr Currie has an online survey on her Menopause Matters website and wishes to seek the opinion of one million women worldwide about their experiences of using HRT.

There are ten million women in the UK who are perimenopausal or menopausal.
The one million woman survey – is about every woman
The Hot Flush Diary – is just about you
