Shownotes

What do we know about the use of testosterone therapy for a person with a history of cancer? What data is available to us and how do we use this to make decisions in a patient-doctor relationship?

I discuss this with Mr. Vikram Talaulikar, associate specialist at the reproductive medicine unit and associate Professor in Women's Health at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

He has published widely in the area of reproductive medicine and explains to us what we know and what we don’t know and how he handles this in his day-to-day practice.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
