September is Menopause Awareness Month

For the past 5 decades, the American media have closely followed every new Baby Boomer trend.  Now with more than 5,000 women entering menopause per day, this topic is an increasingly popular one.  Sadly, however, most women are still confused about where to get reliable medical information about menopause, how they know they are in menopause, and what the important health implications are. 

The American Menopause Foundation has announced that September is Menopause Awareness Month.  They want women in their 40's and 50's--and their health care providers--to make an extra effort this month to educate themselves about menopause and how to best manage it.

The short term symptoms of menopause like hot flashes are well known, but only affect 2 out of 3 menopausal women.  More important are the long term health consequences, such as bone loss, heart disease, and impaired memory.  All of these symptoms are caused or worsened by estrogen loss, which is what causes menopause itself.
