Has sex become more work than it’s worth? Do you want to crawl into your freezer to avoid hot flashes? Are you anxious about getting breast cancer and want to reduce your risk?
If so, join our next Menopause Talks with renowned women’s health experts Dr. Lisa Larkin and Dr. Lauren Streicher. They will give you the skinny on alternative approaches for increasing your desire for sex (throw out your testosterone pellets), reducing your menopausal hot flashes (nonhormonal treatment coming soon!), and preventing and detecting breast cancer (personalized strategies).
Both Drs. Larkin and Streicher share an interest in and expertise with menopause and sexual health. Dr. Larkin, a breast cancer survivor herself, is a national expert on breast cancer, including lowering its risk and detecting it earlier. So they will keep it real; and they will be honest about what will and won’t help us feel better and remain healthy during and long after menopause.
These are important midlife-and-beyond issues, so please bring your questions because Drs. Larkin and Streicher will draw on their decades of experience to address your concerns and give you answers.
