Encyclopedia of Reproductive Technologies

By Annette Burfoot | Go to book overview
technology used to assist a woman through an illness but a lifetime commitment to replacing what has been described as "a deficiency" in aging women. This is one technology that is irrevocably changing the meaning of midlife and menopause throughout the Western world.
Conclusion
The health professions, as well as the media, promote the idea that it is wise and responsible--"an educated choice"--for women to undergo screening for a range of possible conditions. However, all health technologies, whether they require invasive procedures or not (e.g., blood or tissue samples), have an impact on the screened. Those who have a high family incidence of a particular disease may be well advised to undergo screening procedures, but there is sufficient research to show that the indiscriminate use of screening technologies is ill advised and may cause both physical and emotional harm.
