The Cormorant Story
Menopause & Beyond

This page is the outgrowth of the online research of many dedicated posters to the newsgroup alt.support.menopause, whose hours of reading and evaluating have created an important resource for the midlife woman. Not all newsfeeds carry all newsgroups in the alt.* hierarchy; but even if you cannot reach the newsgroup from the link above, you can also read alt.support.menopause from DejaNews.

These links were recommended by midlife women, many of whom are not health care professionals. Inclusion does not necessarily imply endorsement, and anyone reading material on these sites is encouraged to do so with a critical eye. Remember that citations from studies may not necessarily reflect the full study findings, that experiment or survey designs may be flawed, and that the creators of these web pages may be well-intentioned but misinformed. In other words, as the reader you have a responsibility to investigate all claims carefully, and to discuss any contemplated treatments with your health care provider.

Please note: Many of these links lead to pages on the Medscape site. To reach them, you must register -- there is no charge for the service.

(Who are we?) Here is a link to a series of Dejanews postings done in December 1998. Karen M, one of our regular posters, collected personal histories from a number of us and summarized them in this series of postings.
