What about the Women’s Health Initiative results?

Published in 2002, the Women’s Health Initiative study (WHI) revealed what turned out to be exaggerated risks associated with Hormone Treatment, severely impacting the way menopause is treated for decades to come.

The resulting media storm led to a communications catastrophe that drastically diminished the use of hormone treatments among women and led to the removal of menopause education from the medical curriculum for all Canadian doctors. Even today, menopause is not part of the standard curriculum in most medical schools.

We launched the Felix menopause program because we believe women deserve to know about all their treatment options and have a choice in how they manage their menopause transition.
