OBJECTIVE: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are debilitating chronic intestinal diseases requiring extensive medical intervention. Little is known how IBD symptoms and treatments affect menopause experience and quality of life. The study's goal was to investigate the relationship between IBD and menopause. METHOD: Women with IBD, between the ages of 30 and 65 years, were recruited from an outpatient IBD clinic. They completed surveys on obstetric, medical, and IBD history and clinical disease activity...

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) Draft Recommendation statement on Menopausal Hormone Therapy: Primary Prevention for Chronic Diseases, released in May 2017, perpetuates a major disconnect between the primary population affected, women within roughly 10 years of menopause, and the data cited. Furthermore, major elements of the evidence relied upon have been misinterpreted or misstated, particularly in regard to coronary heart disease and breast cancer, for which there is no statistically significant evidence of harm...

OBJECTIVES: Cardiovascular function generally decreases with age, but whether this decrease differs between men and women is unclear. Our aims were twofold: (1) to investigate age-related sex differences in left ventricular (LV) structure, function and mechanics, and (2) to compare these measures between pre- and postmenopausal women in the middle-aged group. METHODS: Resting echocardiography was performed in a cross-sectional sample of 82 healthy adults (14 young men, 19 middle-aged men, 15 young women, 34 middle-aged women: 15 premenopausal and 19 postmenopausal)...

Abnormal uterine bleeding is one of the commonest presenting complaints encountered in a gynecologist's office or primary-care setting. The wider availability of diagnostic tools has allowed prompt diagnosis and treatment of an increasing number of menstrual disorders in an office setting. This White Paper reviews the advantages and disadvantages of transvaginal ultrasound, blind endometrial sampling and diagnostic hysteroscopy. Once a proper diagnosis has been established, appropriate therapy may be embarked upon...

OBJECTIVES: Turner syndrome (TS), resulting from complete/partial X chromosomal monosomy, is associated with multiple co-morbidities and increased mortality. Although multidisciplinary management is recommended, TS women's health care is sub-optimal. This study evaluates a multidisciplinary adult TS service. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of 82 patients attending the quarterly TS clinic from December 2003 to December 2014. Evaluation included (1) demographics, (2) TS standardized co-morbidity screening, and (3) estrogen therapy use...

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been established as the first-line treatment for women experiencing menopausal symptoms. The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), however, is becoming increasingly popular among women at midlife for management of such symptoms. Despite the equivocal evidence of CAM's efficacy in the reduction and alleviation of menopausal symptoms in placebo-controlled, randomized trials, 50% of women at midlife use CAM. To date, several large, population-based studies have focused upon CAM use amongst menopausal women and the factors associated with the adoption of such therapies...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate efficacy, tolerability and safety of Monurelle Biogel(®) vaginal gel for treatment of vaginal dryness. METHODS: Multicenter, national, randomized, controlled vs. no-treatment, open-label study. Ninety-five postmenopausal women were randomized (48 to Monurelle Biogel(®) and 47 to no treatment). Primary endpoint was the change of Verbal Rating Scale (VRS) total score of vaginal atrophy (VA) symptoms after 8-week treatment. The main secondary endpoints were VRS single-item score, Vaginal Health Index (VHI) score, Maturation Index (MI), Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), and Female Sexual Distress Scale-Revised (FSDS-R)...

Sleep is mandatory for life and therefore any sleep deprivation or disruption might carry ill-health outcomes. The optimal night's sleep duration seems to be around 7 h, as too little sleep and too much sleep have been found to be associated with a variety of changes in well-being, physical and psychological parameters. This mini-review enlightens the potential health consequences of sleep disturbance relevant to menopause and midlife women's health. These include cardiovascular and metabolic derangements, cognitive impairment, osteoporosis, and cancer-related perspectives...

OBJECTIVE: The primary aim was to analyze the association of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) with menopause symptomatology and its overall impact. A secondary/exploratory aim was to assess the association of different components of physical fitness with menopause symptomatology. METHODS: This cross-sectional study comprised 191 perimenopausal women from Southern Spain (age range 45-60 years, mean age 52.6 ± 4.5 years). The Blatt-Kupperman Menopausal Index was used to evaluate menopause symptomatology...

OBJECTIVES: The platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) is a predictive clinical biomarker for different cancers. However, the results of several studies investigating the association between the PLR and the prognosis of ovarian cancer have been inconclusive. Therefore, there is a need to conduct a meta-analysis to estimate the prognostic value of the PLR in ovarian cancer. METHODS: We searched the EMBASE, Medline, PubMed, and Web of Science databases to identify clinical studies that had evaluated the association between the PLR and ovarian cancer prognosis...

Female lichen sclerosus is a chronic inflammatory dermatitis, with a predilection for the anogenital area, which in some cases can become seriously distorted (atrophy of the labia minora, phimosis, introital stenosis, etc.). Most cases are diagnosed in postmenopausal women, but it can affect women of any age. Lichen sclerosus is usually a pruriginous condition, although it can also be asymptomatic. It is associated with an increased risk of vulvar cancer, even though it is not a premalignant condition itself...

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women with a lifetime risk of 1 in 8 in the UK. The disease is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. The UK breast screening program has been in place for almost 30 years and has evolved with improved diagnostic imaging. The overall benefits of the screening program are subject to continued heated debate with multiple potential harms. The aim of this review is to provide the non-breast specialist health-care professional an overview of the evolution of the breast screening program, a summary of the evidence of the benefits, and a description of the harms...
