Show Notes

Millions of women around the world enter menopause each year – so why do we know so little about it? On this week’s 51%, we sit down with Dr. Heather Hirsch, founder of the Menopause and Midlife Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, to learn how we can meet menopause symptoms head-on. We also discuss the benefits and controversies behind hormone replacement therapy, how to know if it’s a good treatment option for you, and what you can do instead if you’re not ready to take the plunge.

Guest: Dr. Heather Hirsch, M.D., MS, NCMP with Midi Health Care and author of Unlock Your Menopause Type: Personalized Treatments, the Last Word on Hormones, and Remedies that Work

You can learn more about menopause at the North American Menopause Society website here.

51% is a national production of WAMC Northeast Public Radio in Albany, New York. Jesse King is the show’s producer and host. Our associate producer is Jody Cowan, and our theme is “Lolita” from the Albany-based artist Girl Blue.
