More Than Half Of US Women Not Aware Of Non-Hormonal Therapies For Menopause Hot Flashes, Study Reveals

July 29, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
In the United States, 52 percent of women ages 50 to 64 said they are not aware of non-hormonal options in treatment of menopause-related hot flashes, according to a survey of 314 women conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of the Society for Women’s Health Research and Metagenics in April 2013. Results of the survey also revealed 69 percent of women said they are open to using alternative and non-hormonal therapies to help reduce their hot flashes. However, only 10 percent of the respondents said they have discussed these therapies with a doctor. An estimated 50 million American women have reached menopause, with most of them expected to spend at least one-third of their lives beyond their final menstrual period and with 65–80 percent experiencing hot flashes at varying degrees.
