OBJECTIVE: Hormone therapy (HT) prescription patterns have varied enormously over time and across specialties. The present study attempts to look at practice variation in specific controversial scenarios and to determine if attendance at The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) 2016 Annual Meeting, where the draft of the 2017 NAMS HT Position Statement was presented, had any impact on members' HT prescribing patterns. METHODS: An anonymous survey with 11 case scenarios was sent to all NAMS members before and after the 2016 NAMS Annual Meeting...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to conduct a pooled analysis of three published trials of nonpharmacological interventions for menopausal hot flashes to compare the effectiveness of interventions. METHODS: Data from three randomized controlled trials of interventions for hot flashes (two acupuncture trials, one yoga trial) were pooled. All three studies recruited perimenopausal or postmenopausal women experiencing ≥4 hot flashes/d on average. The primary outcome for all three studies was frequency of hot flashes as measured by the Daily Diary of Hot Flashes...

OBJECTIVE: Although menopause is a natural event in a woman's life, some of its symptoms can be severe enough to adversely affect her health. There is some evidence to suggest that diet has an influence on menopausal symptoms, but less attention has been paid to dietary patterns. The purpose of this study is to determine the association of dietary patterns with physical, mental, and genitourinary menopausal symptoms. METHODS: A cross-sectional study design was applied using a sample of 400 postmenopausal women who attended health centers in the south of Tehran, Iran...

OBJECTIVE: We updated a systematic review to evaluate the totality of evidence available for the efficacy and safety of vaginal estrogen products for the treatment of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) based on published randomized controlled trials. METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Library, Ovid, PubMed, Medline, Embase, and Clinicaltrials.gov for English-language articles from database inception to June 2018. Our search consolidated 2,086 potential sources to 53 full-text articles that were reviewed and found relevant to our systematic review...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to report the incidence of low-energy fracture since menopause in postmenopausal women ≤70 years and to explore associated risk factors METHODS:: This was a part of the Chinese National Fracture Survey (CNFS), which was carried out in eight provinces of China mainland between January and May 2015. Data on 68,783 postmenopausal women ≤70 years were extracted from the CNFS database for calculations and analyses. RESULTS: A total of 309 women were confirmed to have low-energy fractures in 2014, indicating the incidence of 449...

OBJECTIVE: Effective interventions of future health care require a better understanding of the health risks associated with early onset of menopause and diabetes, but the necessary data are scarce. Little quantitative information is available about the combined association of early menopause and diabetes on life expectancy and the number of years lived with and without diabetes. METHODS: We included 3,650 postmenopausal women aged 45+ years from the Rotterdam Study, a prospective population-based cohort study...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of switching from hormone therapy to tissue-selective estrogen complex (TSEC) in women who experience vaginal bleeding or breast discomfort. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 82 postmenopausal women who received TSEC after switching from another hormone therapy due to adverse events. Changes in symptoms and imaging after switching to TSEC were evaluated. RESULTS: The mean age was 56...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a modified vaginal closure in older women with severe pelvic organ prolapse (POP) with respect to symptoms, quality of life, postoperative satisfaction, regret rate, and complications METHODS:: From March, 2014 to December, 2016, in all, 32 women were enrolled in the study. All the participants underwent a modified vaginal closure. Records were reviewed to collect demographic characteristics and perioperative parameters. The Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory-short form 20 (PFDI-20) and the Short Form 36 Health Survey Profile (SF-36) were used to evaluate pelvic symptoms and self-perceived quality of life, respectively, 6 months postoperatively and at the latest follow-up...

OBJECTIVES: A significant body of knowledge implicates menopausal estrogen levels in the pathogenesis of the common pelvic floor disorders (PFDs). These health conditions substantially decrease quality of life, increase depression, social isolation, caregiver burden, and economic costs to the individuals and society. METHODS: This review summarizes the epidemiology of the individual PFDs with particular attention to the understanding of the relationship between each PFD and menopausal estrogen levels, and the gaps in science and clinical care that affect menopausal women...

OBJECTIVES: This study tested whether high-intensity interval training is a time-efficient strategy for improving visceral adiposity tissue and inflammatory markers in obese postmenopausal women when compared with combined training. Moreover, we tested whether change in visceral adiposity tissue is associated with alterations in these inflammatory markers. METHODS: Postmenopausal women were randomized in two groups: combined training (n = 13) and high-intensity interval training (n = 13)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of menopause and of postmenopausal stages on depression and anxiety symptoms, and whether these symptoms associate with anthropometric, metabolic, and hormonal parameters in midlife women. METHODS: Postmenopausal women (age 50-65), either at early (EPM, n=33) or late (LPM, n = 23) postmenopause, and 23 premenopausal controls (PreM, age 40-50), matched for BMI with the PM groups, were studied. Blood biochemical and hormonal determinations, bioimpedance anthropometry, and depression and anxiety symptoms (Beck's depression [BDI] and anxiety [BAI] inventories) were conducted...

OBJECTIVE: The alpha2C adrenoreceptor deletion 322-325 (ADRA2C del 322-325) polymorphism has been associated with autonomic activity and thermoregulation, which are implicated in the vasomotor symptom (VMS) mechanism. The ADRA2C del (322-325) has higher prevalence in African American women, a group known to experience more frequent and bothersome VMS. We assessed whether the ADRA2C del (322-325) genotype is associated with increased frequency of VMS in African American women. METHODS: DNA samples from African American (N = 400) women participating in the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN) were genotyped for the ADRA2C del (322-325) polymorphism...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of microablative fractional CO2 laser therapy for genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) management, when three, four, or five laser therapies were applied in a follow-up period of 12 months. METHODS: Retrospective study evaluating GSM symptoms at baseline, and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after last laser therapy. Visual analog scale, International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaires- Female Urinary Tract Symptoms, International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaires-Urinary Incontinence Short Form, Urogenital Distress Inventory-6, and Female Sexual Function Index were used for assessment of GSM symptoms' intensity or bothering and parameters of sexual function...

OBJECTIVE: This study is designed to measure the prevalence and severity of menopausal symptoms at different substages of perimenopause, as well as the relationships of these symptoms with social support and resilience in perimenopausal women. METHODS: A convenience sample of 732 perimenopausal women was recruited from 3 communities of Jinan City, Shandong Province, China, between March 2015 and March 2017. The participants completed the Menopause Rating Scale, the 10-item Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale, the Perceived Social Support Scale, and a questionnaire regarding sociodemographic information...

OBJECTIVE: The main objective of the study is to translate and adapt the menopause-specific Utian Quality of Life (UQOL) scale to Yoruba, an indigenous Nigerian language, using middle-aged women attending a Family Medicine clinic in Nigeria. METHODS: A total of 322 middle-aged Nigerian women at various menopausal stages were recruited for the study. Their menopausal status was categorized using the Monash Women's Health Program Menopausal Staging Algorithm into pre-, peri-, and postmenopausal groups...
