National Menopause Awareness Month

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

September is National Menopause Awareness Month.... well let me tell you, I'm well aware!

The hot flashes, the mood swings, the attitude... I get it! Heck, I've got it, but I don't really want it....

Can I give it back?

On a serious note:
National Menopause Awareness Month

The ORWH joins the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) in recognizing September as National Menopause Awareness Month. This month-long event was established by U.S. federal legislators who recognized the need to increase awareness about the importance of having accurate information to enhance women’s health at menopause and beyond. In support of the same goal, October 18 has been designated World Menopause Day by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Menopause represents the end of a woman’s fertility and, on average, occurs at age 51. Although menopause is a natural event, there are potential short-term health effects (eg, hot flashes) and health consequences over the long term (eg, osteoporosis).
