Setting the record straight on menopause

Plan to see Hot Flash Havoc

film reelHot Flash Havoc is a must see for all women. In a nutshell, Hot Flash Havoc debunks menopause myths, shares poignant, personal stories of real women and features in-depth interviews with the world’s most noted menopause experts.

But be warned…Hot Flash Havoc is not your mother’s menopause film. It’s a laugh-out-loud funny perspective on a topic that was once considered taboo. It’s also the most provocative and revealing documentary ever made about menopause. Hot Flash Havoc sets the record straight about the U.S. Government sanctioned Women’s Health Initiative study — released in 2002 — that said hormone replacement therapy could increase the risk of heart attacks and cancer.

At that time, this study culminated in a nationwide panic. Women heard the results and flushed their hormone medication down the toilet, which unfortunately ended up compromising the health of many. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 25,000 women unnecessarily experienced heart attacks or death.

The film, which is free and open to the public, will be shown Thursday, June 19, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, in the education room at the Women’s Center West Chester location. Light snacks will be provided and a discussion will follow the film. Please make reservations by calling (513) 475-UC4U or register online.
