Focus Your Mind On The Menopause
Show Notes Transcript

This week Nik is joined by the Red Whale Women's Health team: Dr Lucy Cox and Dr Helen Barnes . They discuss 'Davina McCall: Sex, Mind and the Menopause' which was recently on Channel 4, and the potential impact of a TV documentary trumpeting very early research as a breakthrough. They look at what we do know about  HRT and cognitive function,  clarify the British Menopause Society’s position,  and consider how HRT and testosterone, though very important, may not suit everyone. 
There's also the usual look at the medical news headlines and the week in daytime TV.
