Replenish Study

Monday, August 25, 2014
Are you tired of dealing with hot flashes? I know I am! This is a compensated, sponsored post for the Replenish Study to help you overcome your hot flashes. All information has been provided to me.

Ice cubes, fans, cranking the AC, sticking your face in the freezer… nothing seems to help when you are eager to cool down from your hot flashes. They come out of nowhere and occur multiple times a day, leaving you irritable and feeling frustrated. Sometimes, they even interrupt your night’s sleep!

If you wish there were a way to get your hot flashes under control, the Replenish Study might be right for you. This medical research study is evaluating an investigational medication to see if it may reduce the frequency of hot flashes and sweating associated with menopause.

To qualify, you must be:
  • Female between the ages of 40 and 65
  • Have not had a hysterectomy
  • Suffer from several hot flashes a day

Study Participants:
  • Receive study medication at no cost
  • Receive study-related medical exams (similar to an annual gynecologist visit) at no charge
  • Are not required to have insurance
  • May be reimbursed for time, travel and other expenses

To learn more about the Replenish Study and see if you qualify, visit or call 1-800-918-1468.

It's Time to Talk about Sex After Menopause with Missy Lavender -#sexaftermenopuase #sponsored

Friday, August 8, 2014
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

 It's Time to Talk About Sex After Menopause digital campaign that helps raise awareness of an often-neglected area of women's health.  For men, Viagra is regularly discussed but for women, painful sexafter menopause, and sex as they age is not discussed. Missy’s organization is trying to change that.

"When  it comes to talking about sex after menopause, women and their doctors pull back and are reluctant to have any earnest dialogue about what is really going on," said Missy Lavender, Founder and Executive Director, Women's Health Foundation. "When we compared this silence for women to how men's sexual health is a socially acceptable part of the vernacular today, we realized something needed to be done."

Missy Lavender is the Founder and Executive Director of WHF. Prior to her life as a Pelvic Health Evangelist, she had a long career in real estate finance, development, and investor relations.  Missy is a national speaker on pelvic health and has been featured in numerous press outlets, print, radio, and television.  She is the author of two books, “You Go Girl…But Only When You Want To!”and “You Go Girl…But Only When You Want To! Senior Edition.” Her forthcoming books, “Below Your Belt: A Girl’s Guide To Pelvic Health” and “Riding the Potty Train” will be published in 2014. Missy’s other activities include being on the Board of Personal PAC Board and the Azadi Foundation, and a founding member of First Tuesday, an innovative women’s resource group. Missy is actively involved with her children’s schools, is a member of the Leader Council for Mercy Homes for Boys and Girls, and sings in the choir of her church. A mother of two, Ms. Lavender holds an MBA from the Kellogg School                                                          of Management at Northwestern University.
