How The Study Worked
We will ask questions about your sleep, mood, physical activities, and aches and pains. Responses from more than 4,000 women with and without breast cancer will be analyzed so we can better understand the effects of medications on quality of life in menopause, and help postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. All study information will be kept confidential.
