Survey doesn't seem to be working for me - clicking next button is keeping me in the same page - of course this could be my period menopausal brain fog!
JustineBMumsnet · 08/10/2019 13:42
Hi @HoneyandSpice thanks for letting us know and apologies - is this still happening for you? Would you be able to email us on [email protected] letting us know which question you're experiencing this on so we can take a look?
ForeverFaff · 08/10/2019 14:03
Why are MNHQ allowed to acknowledge the sex of certain people for its own benefit, but women who don't agree that males can become females are silenced, banned and treated like children?
Disgusting hypocrisy here.
EagleVisionSquirrelWork · 08/10/2019 15:25
A few trick questions on this survey, I see. I wonder if Q23 is going to catch anyone out?
GreasyFryUp · 08/10/2019 17:21
Hard to answer with respect to GPs. Mine's great, another in the practice might be crap. Shouldn't it be phrased YOUR GP rather than a general plural?
EmpressLesbianInChair · 08/10/2019 18:15
Done. But why do you have the female / male question?
Barracker · 08/10/2019 18:39
Can you clarify what you mean by female please @MNHQ?
As far as I can tell, every time I've used the definition of female that I understand to be correct, and have factually noted particular people who are not female, I've apparently committed a breach of talk guidelines.
This seems like an opportune moment for you to clarify EXACTLY what you mean by female, since you're specifically asking exclusively for female respondents here.
Also, I can then use your own clarification to ensure that I don't breach guidelines in future when I point out that a person is male, not female.
EmpressLesbianInChair · 08/10/2019 18:40
I expect the Misogynist Monitors will be rushing to fill it in, Barracker..
RaininSummer · 08/10/2019 19:00
Yes question 23 is odd. Can I also add that I would like gps to have more knowledge of alternative remedies as we can all take or want to take hrt.
lljkk · 08/10/2019 19:13
I would like to see the results when ready. -Female
Barracker · 08/10/2019 20:30
Oh yes, there was a compulsory question about how long you suffered symptoms after menopause. One, two years etc
Need to disregard those answers since there wasn't an option for 'none - I was on HRT'
TheAlternativeTentacle · 08/10/2019 23:22
Also you don't go through the menopause and come out the other side. Menopause means the end of ovulation and periods. That's it.
LadyAndiBella · 08/10/2019 23:53
Why do you ask women who are experiencing menopausal symptoms if they are female or not?
Also, why does every mumsnet survey have to ask if you have dc and their ages?? This survey is nothing to do with caring for children.
MrGsFancyNewVagina · 09/10/2019 02:23
I was happily filling the form in, until I got to the question that asked me what sex I am. Now, considering it’s a questioner about the menopause, the only answer ANYONE can honestly give is woman, female that wants to believe that they’re a man, a male that wants to pretend he’s going through the menopause because of the drugs he’s taking and now wants to pretend he is of the female sex, or someone who pretends they are either both or neither. ‘‘Tis all a bit confusing.
When survey monkey has to pretend that non women have the menopause, you know no money is worth selling your dignity.
ForeverFaff · 09/10/2019 06:54
I guess @MNHQ are happy to throw women under the woke bus then.
Are we just cash cows now? Shut up with your talk about things we don't like, but fill in surveys for our sponsors.
Do men have periods?
kristallen · 09/10/2019 07:06
Aah men have menopause too? Great Mumsnet. Would it be possible to give us an explanation of how this works? I always understood menopause to be the cessation of ovulation and menstruation along with hormonal change. Perhaps you could do a Q&A to explain where in testes ovulation takes place? I can't find information on Google. Ta.

CleopatrasMum · 09/10/2019 13:08
Gosh I missed that point about sex. I assumed the survey was trying to weed out men answering the survey on behalf of women they knew (or at least deal with their responses separately). Of course it wasn't - doh!
HeadintheiClouds · 09/10/2019 13:13
Are you really still doing the anyone can be female thing in a survey about menopausal symptoms, MNHQ? It would be laughable if it wasn’t so utterly depressing. Come on...
Sadik · 09/10/2019 14:42
Some shockingly badly worded & leading questions in that survey. The Q (don't remember precise wording but this is neat enough) "Do you think anti depressants should be prescribed where HRT is more appropriate?" and the following section are patently designed to get the answers the survey wants, not be a genuine reflection of people's opinions.
(Of course I may just be grumpy due to untreated peri menopausal symptoms 😆)
PickAChew · 09/10/2019 20:43
@ForeverFaff I'm sure that any menopausal men (ie those whose menstrual periods are coming to an end) would be welcome to compete this survey
thatwouldbeanecumenicalmatter · 09/10/2019 22:23
How heartless of MNHQ, you know fine well talking about menstruation and menopause is triggering for some stunning and brave women.
But fear not I'll get DH to fill it in, he listened to some Chaka Khan in the car on the way home.
thatwouldbeanecumenicalmatter · 09/10/2019 22:25
Oops misgendered my own DH, I meant 'they'.
tobee · 10/10/2019 02:06
I didn't get very far. I was asked about whether I was going through peri menopause/menopause etc. There was no option for don't know. I'm sure quite a few people wouldn't know if they were peri menopausal for a start. Also I can't be the only one on here who doesn't know about where they are because they have had a hysterectomy but still have ovaries so it's all a bit of a mystery with added guesswork!
MrGsFancyNewVagina · 10/10/2019 02:10
Of course I may just be grumpy due to untreated peri menopausal symptoms 😆
Could be worse. You could be one of those brave and stunning ladies. Just imagine what all those menopausal hot flushes would do to your balls!
