Important Information for Women

Women should be very suspect of multi-media advertising campaigns about herbs, nutritional supplements, 'bioidentical hormones' and unconventional, unproven testing methods.  These advertisments may promise miracle cures of women's (and men's) emotional and sexual dysfunction.  Clicking on the link below will take you to statements from recognized scientific and legal authorities, such as ACOG, NIH, CDC, FDA as well as State Attorneys General who have investigated these claims and found them to be unsubstantiated and potentially quite harmful.  Links to statements from those organizations may be found in the ‘Patient Educational Resources’.
