The Menopause Exchange


For immediate release - 31 August 2005

Looking for a case study?

If you need a case study on the menopause, look no further than The Menopause Exchange, the information service for anyone with an interest in the menopause and related issues.

Two of our members want to share their stories, so that other women can benefit from their experiences of the menopause, HRT and self-help measures.

Barbara started going through the menopause at around age 50 and suffers from severe hot flushes and night sweats. She has tried to come off HRT (patches) twice by suddenly stopping the treatment, without success. She is now trying to do this gradually by following advice in The Menopause Exchange newsletter. She has used medical herbalism to help her menopausal problems.

Anne has had gynaecological problems for much of her life and had a hysterectomy before she turned 40. She has had emotional symptoms associated with the menopause. She was on oestrogen-only HRT for four years but came off it when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She says that she is happy to talk about her experiences if it helps other women.

If you are interested in using one or both of these case studies, contact The Menopause Exchange on 020 8420 7245 or e-mail
