I came across this web site and was wondering if anyone has ordered any of the information they offer. They have a booklet for "Induced Menopause" I was considering ordering. Please give your opinion if you have read any of their material. Thanks.

I've not ordered any of their material, but I do know that they're one of the more serious (and seriously-regarded) sites I've browsed through. The general menopause info is kind of plain vanilla stuff, though (okay--I'll admit it: I didn't have a plain vanilla menopause and when they characterised what I experienced as "rare" I stopped expecting to find much useful stuff). What I saw in the HRT section was extremely conservative and very soothingly positive in an undetailed way. It's all the sort of bland, inoffensive (doctor's office handout) stuff that's carefully tailored to avoid stepping on the physician-patient relationship and to reassure the patient that her caring health professional will soothe all her woes.

I did look through the short sample of the Induced Meno pamphlet and I have to say it looks a lot the same in tone: broad in scope and skimpy on details, especially about the hard stuff. Remember, though--I've been hanging around this Jungle for almost a year now, so I'm going to be a tough customer for this kind of thing. I'd like to see what someone thinks who isn't used to the rough-and-tumble of medical journals. More opinions anyone? [blue]

Thanks Savh. I was wondering if this information would be more of the same stuff I have already read with no definitive conclusions for the things I am experiencing. I guess I'm getting impatient. I have an appointment next Tues. at a place called "The Menopause Institute". I am very anxious to see what they will recommend for me. They took blood to check hormone levels and will analyze my diet and health risks like breast cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. to come up with a plan for me. I will certainly post after my appointment.

Thanks again, Savh. And anyone else with input on this web site, please give your opinion.
