100 million women in the prime of their lives have endometriosis

I was struck by some of the material in this morning's article from Physorg.com----while the article talks about the loss of productivity and sick days as it applies to women suffering from endometriosis----much of the financial issues in the workplace could also apply to women suffering from menopause symptoms. Something to think about---even if only half the women in the US who are dealing with severe menopause symptoms were able to access bioidentical hormone therapy, imagine the number of reduced sick days, fewer doctor visits, less cost for medication----it could realize a significant savings in medical costs.
