I'm hoping someone from this support group can direct me. We are trying to locate a way to directly reach women experiencing hot flashes due to menopause or drug side effects, etc. We have a product in development that we need to test on approximately 20 women in the Wilmington Delaware or Philadelphia areas. I was hoping that someone here may be able to direct us to a way to reach out to these people directly in the hopes of us finding product testers. The product reduces the impact of hot flashes. The product testing involves having the product directly on the skin for short periods of time 20-60 minutes. We seem to be able to locate one or two people experiencing hot flashes "here and there", but we need a larger sample group. Any help,direction, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I AM experiancing hot flashes - 48 yoa total hysterectomy at age 36, ovaries not working so well any more, i have had 5 today! I have tried several treatments but always get depression. I am in nh though so do not know if I would qualify thanks
I also am having hot flashes from taking Savella. I went through menopause about 10 years ago and the hot flashes had stopped. I have several a day now. I also seem much hotter all the time, sweat profusely, and can get overheated. My hot flashes affect my whole body.
I see this question is from a year ago and directed at Women on the East Coast. I'm interested on how everyone is doing. I was having horrid Hot Flashes, told my Doctor I was going to kill myself if he didn't help me. He prescribed Estrogen Patch and Progestrine pill. I haven't flashed since, its been over a year. I would like to find a healthier treatment which is one reason I'm here. I was desperate and willing to take ANYTHING to curb to flashes. My Mother was on Hormones for 35 plus years. Well, I'm hoping to hear Women's progress and suggestions to on-line groups, Hot Flash treatments, etc. Thank you for your time!
