The tool, known as Menopause Map, was developed after a study conducted by both the organizations found that more than 72 percent of women had not received treatment for their menopause symptoms. The study also found that nearly half (45 percent) were confused about the currently available information while 41 percent were not sure what to trust.

The Endocrine Society's Dr Cynthia Stuenkel said that a number of people do not even bother about potential treatments for their symptoms as the information available is too confusing. Dr Stuenkel hoped that the tool will allow women to think about their symptoms seriously and start discussing about possible treatments.

"This is a great interactive tool to engage women to really think through their symptoms. Women can't practice medicine on themselves with a tool like this, but hopefully the Menopause Map will get the conversation going", she said.
