Grayson County Rotary Club

Dr. Ashley Brumm was last week’s guest speaker at the Graycon County Rotary Club meeting. The group gathers at 6:50 a.m. every Wednesday at Fulbelli’s Restaurant in Sherman.

Brumm, a local obstetrician/gynecologist, discuss menopause in women which is the cessation of a woman’s reproductive ability. Per Brumm, this typically occurs around the age of 51, but can effect woman anywhere from their early 40s to late 50s. The symptoms are many and varied and treatments such as menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) are used in some cases, however, most women do not need treatment. Possible risks associated with MHT include blood clots, heart attacks, stroke, breast cancer and gall bladder disease. Brumm added that herbal supplements for menopause have not been shown to help in clinical studies and stressed consulting with one’s doctor about benefits and risks of MHT.

Welcomed as a guest was Austin Everett.
