Can you help with a survey?

The National Institute of Health Research wants to fund some research to compare different therapies offered to women with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI), also called premature ovarian failure or premature menopause.

They are a team of doctors, researchers and women with personal experience of POI who are signing a trial to compare the treatments. To ensure that the trial is all right for  women who have POI, they are seeking your opinions. The survey should take no more than a couple of minutes to complete. Your answers are completely anonymous and it is really important as it will help improve treatment for women with POI in the future. You can find the survey here
