a/k/a: Daisy Network
PO Box 183
Buckinghamshire, BB4 6WZ
The Daisy Network, a premature menopause support group, is for women who have suffered a premature menopause. It provides advice and support for affected women and their families through what can be a devastating, life-changing diagnosis. Premature menopause, also called premature ovarian failure, is defined as the onset of menopause before the age of 40. It can occur for several reasons, including a malfunctioning of the body's immune system, damage to the ovaries, and, in a few cases, an inherited genetic cause. The Daisy Network provides opportunities to share feelings, experiences, and information with others. It also provides information about treatments and research in the fields of hormone replacement therapy and assisted conception. In addition, it seeks to raise awareness of the condition among the medical community and policy-makers.
