Let’s Create a Better Understanding of The Years Leading Up to Menopause
Below is a link to a survey aimed at understanding all of the things women experience in the many years preceding their final menstrual period.
By taking this survey and sharing your experience you will contribute to a better understanding of the years leading up to menopause — something that is so needed!
Many women experience changes in mood or sleep and other symptoms, and some may be told by a healthcare provider these things can’t be related to menopause because they are still getting a regular period or they are too young.
This phase hasn't been the focus of much research, but we aim to change that.
The team that created this survey includes women’s health researchers and healthcare providers who care for women with menopause-related concerns. We plan to use the results from this survey to enhance understanding in both the research and healthcare communities. Importantly, we will also share results with women broadly so they know they aren’t alone.
The survey is completely anonymous and results will only be shared about groups of women, not at the individual level.
Please take the survey and help us spread this far and wide by forwarding this link to all of the 35 to 55-year-old women that you know.

FYI: This survey was reviewed by the University of Washington Institutional Review Board (IRB). An IRB is a research ethics committee that provides protection for human research participants. We had this survey reviewed so that our results can be used by the scientific community. Because all of the data in this survey are ANONYMOUS, it was determined to be exempt from any ethical-legal concerns regarding the treatment of study participants.
