We Want To Change The Narrative Around Menopause

Start the Dialogue

One of the biggest issues surrounding menopause is the lack of open communication. “The Change” is often considered taboo, and as a result, many women suffer in silence. We built CurieMD to change how we talk about menopause and to make sure all women have access to the right information.

Bio-Identical Hormones

Bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to those that our own bodies produce. CurieMD works with board-certified physicians to prescribe FDA-approved hormones for women to restore hormonal balance during menopause.

Reducing The Barriers To HRT

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) may sound intimidating, but it’s been proven to be the most effective, holistic way to address the natural changes your body undergoes during menopause. It is our goal to provide women with access to accurate information and physicians who are up to date on the latest treatments for menopause.

The Truth About HRT

“Hormone Therapy (HT) remains one of the most effective treatments for vasomotor symptoms (VMS) and the genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), having been shown to prevent bone loss and even fracturing.

The risks of HT differ depending on type, dose, duration of use, route of administration, timing of initiation, and whether a progestogen is used.

Treatment should be individualized to identify the most appropriate HT type, dose, formulation, route of administration, and duration of use. This is accomplished by using the best available evidence to maximize benefits and minimize risks, with periodic reevaluation of the benefits and risks of continuing or discontinuing HT.”
