Menopause and womens health

Hi there,
I’m interested to know if women with LD are being offered HRT or herbal supplements to relieve menopausal symptoms.
Books Beyond Words don’t have one for menopause … does anyone know of any literature ( visual or accessible language ) that covers this ?

I think this is a really interesting request and an area that I guess does not get too much attention. I have attached a link to a summary of a project by Dr Michelle McArthy for the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities written in 2002.It does not address your exact question but gives an overview:

I run the UK Health and Learning Disability Network and would be happy to post this request on the network as we have over 3500 members with an interest in health. Please contact me via if you would like me to do so.
