MenoPro is a free mobile app from The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) to help you and your clinician work together to personalize treatment decisions on the basis of a your personal preferences (hormone vs nonhormone options), taking into account your medical history and risk factor status. The app has two modes, one for clinicians and one for women, to facilitate shared decision making. MenoPro is available for iOS (iPhone, iPad) and for Android devices.
The MenoPro app has several unique features, including the ability to calculate your 10-year risk of heart disease and stroke, which is important in deciding whether a treatment option is safe for you. It also has links to online tools that assess your risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis and fracture.
MenoPro was developed in collaboration with NAMS and includes links to NAMS education materials, including a downloadable MenoNote on behavioral and lifestyle modifications to reduce hot flashes, and information pages on the pros and cons of hormone versus nonhormone therapy options, a discussion of pill versus patch therapy, and information on treatment options for vaginal dryness and pain with sexual activities, with links to tables with information about different medications. These pages can be printed out or directly accessed from your phone or tablet.
MenoPro already has thousands of users and has been very helpful to clinicians in their practices and to women in helping them make informed choices about managing menopause symptoms.
MenoPro contains no advertising and was developed without any industry or pharmaceutical company support.
We hope this mobile app will be helpful to you in working together with your clinician to make informed choices about the management of your menopause symptoms.
