First-of-its-kind 'Menopause Map' helps women navigate treatment
Date:5/1/2012

rmation about the latest research or what to prescribe," Dr. Stuenkel says. "We want to make health care providers across the nation aware of this tool so that they can facilitate better discussions with their patients."

The "Menopause Map" is an online interactive tool that guides a woman through the different options available to get relief from her symptoms through a series of prompting questions about those symptoms and her personal health history. The Map also has links to questionnaires that help assess current risk for breast cancer, heart disease, and stroke. The tool weighs hormonal and non-hormonal therapies against the risks based on individual symptoms and medical history.

The Map was not designed to be a self-diagnostic tool. It's recommended that women print out their results along with a list of provided questions to discuss the best treatment options for them with their provider. Women should revisit this tool to check their symptoms and have a continuous, informed dialogue with their provider.

The important facts to know about hormone therapy are:

  • Women 60 years and older should not use menopausal hormone therapy.
  • Women 50-59 years or younger, with no family or personal history of breast cancer, no history of heart disease or stroke, and with moderate to severe menopausal symptoms are the best candidates for hormone therapy.
  • If considering hormone therapy, women should talk with their health care provider to determine a plan that is right for them.
  • In addition, lifestyle approach also helps alleviate symptoms and benefit long-term health.
  • For those who decide on hormone therapy, this is an ongoing process and might require a period of trial and error to find the right fit for each individual woman.
  • For those who decide on non-hormonal options, there are several proven therapies available that may help with symptoms. It is important women share information about all medications
