Open to people living with breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer. Natural menopause is a normal part of the aging process. Those diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer may experience medical or surgical menopause as a result of chemotherapy or ovary removal, or “cold turkey” menopause from being taken off hormone replacement therapy.

Topics to be covered: The physiology of menopause including premature menopause from chemotherapy or surgery; the most troublesome aspects of menopause such as hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, and sexual dysfunction; long term health risks associated with early menopause including low bone density, cardiovascular and neurologic disease; safe and effective ways for breast and ovarian cancer patients to deal with menopause.

SPEAKER: Dr. Menn, Board Certified Gynecologist, Fellow of the American College of OB/GYN, and a Certified Menopause Practitioner with a private practice in Chappaqua, NY. She herself is a 12-year breast cancer survivor and dedicates time in her practice to helping other survivors with their unique female health care needs.
