The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Menopause Society designates October as World Menopause Month. In recognition of October as World Menopause Awareness Month, Avion Pharmaceuticals encourages our women’s health community and healthcare professionals to raise awareness about this stage in a woman’s life. This growing recognition helps women understand the possible health issues and related support management options associated for women approaching, during and after menopause.
Dr. Steven R. Goldstein, President of the International Menopause Society notes that, “As we celebrate Menopause Awareness month, it’s important to keep in mind that Menopause is defined as the final menstrual period, after which ovaries no longer make estrogen. For many women it is difficult to tease out changes due to the withdrawal of estrogen versus that of natural aging. This is a time for women to take inventory of their overall health with a goal of healthy aging in order to live a full and vibrant life.”
Menopause Awareness Month is especially important to Avion as we continue to inspire healthcare providers to engage in important menopause management conversations with their patients. To embrace and educate on this time in a women’s life our Avion Women’s Health team is distributing important menopause educational information to patients and health care providers across the country. Avion Women’s Health celebrates Menopause Awareness Month as we are dedicated to providing a versatile portfolio of products that meet the individual health and wellness priorities of each and every woman throughout their lives.
According to the 2022 Hormone Therapy Position Statement released by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS), hormone therapy remains the most effective treatment for hot flashes and genitourinary syndrome of menopause.1 It is key for women to remember that treatment should be personalized and a shared decision between themselves and their provider. Further information regarding menopause and the statement made by the North American Menopause Society can be found at menopause.org or on Facebook by searching “North American Menopause Society”.
