I had my mammogram the other day. And since the x-ray technician performing my exam was a menopausal goddess, we struck up an instant rapport. Upon finding out about the Venus group, she asked me to distill what we d learned together - sort of a 25 words or less synopsis because other mammos were waiting to be grammed. I summed it up this way. Every woman is different and has to conduct her own risk benefit analysis to decide what is best for her. And the way we get wisdom is through woman-to-woman sharing.
After agreeing wholeheartedly, she shared that two of the gynecologists at the big medical center in our nearest city offer no other recommendations for women suffering menopause symptoms than HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy.) And they are young! In their 30 s still. Proving what I ve always suspected: that hardening of the attitude is not an age-related phenomenon.
