#1
Fiona E Watt
Musculoskeletal pain, arthralgia and arthritis are all more common in women, and their frequency increases with age and in some appears to be associated with the onset of menopause. The clinical assessment, investigation and management of women presenting with musculoskeletal pain, arthralgia or arthritis at the time of menopause are reviewed. Common causes of arthralgia and arthritis in this population are discussed. The epidemiological and trials evidence for the effects of hormone replacement therapy on musculoskeletal pain and arthritis (primarily from RCTs of HRT for other menopausal symptoms) are discussed...

Objective To estimate the prevalence of vaginal symptoms in postmenopausal women with breast cancer exposed to aromatase inhibitors, and to investigate if the risk of vaginal symptoms is associated with previous episodes of bacterial vaginosis. Methods Patients from Rigshospitalet and Herlev University Hospital, Denmark, were identified through the register of Danish Breast Cancer Cooperation Group and 78 patients participated in the study. Semiquantitave questionnaires and telephone interview were used to assess the prevalence of vaginal symptoms and previous episode(s) of bacterial vaginosis...

Objective To evaluate the role of transvaginal ultrasound triage in women with a history of tamoxifen treatment who present with post-menopausal bleeding. Study design A retrospective review was undertaken of patients who presented with symptoms of post-menopausal bleeding and underwent ultrasound triage. Endometrial thickness and ultrasonographic features were then correlated with hysteroscopic and histopathological outcome data. The findings and outcomes for women with a history of tamoxifen use (tamoxifen group) were compared to those who had not taken tamoxifen (non-tamoxifen group)...

Introduction Despite the fact that the first osteoporotic fracture is preventable, osteoporosis is still a major health challenge. The disease is highly prevalent among postmenopausal women. However little is known about how to meet and support women, when they are diagnosed with osteoporosis without preceding fractures. Therefore this study aims at gaining a deeper understanding of how women experience being diagnosed. Furthermore to describe and identify their needs, which should be met in future healthcare services...

Cardiovascular disease is very common in women. It is still under diagnosed and under treated. Many women are not having their risk factors for cardiovascular disease properly addressed. Many healthcare professionals are uncertain about the role of hormones in cardiovascular disease. This article gives an overview of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease and how to manage those risk factors appropriately, based on the available evidence.

Reclaim the Menopause is a community-based menopause course developed by Hands Inc. and supported by Hackney Learning Trust. The course provides evidence-based education, cognitive behaviour therapy and psychosocial support to promote menopause awareness, challenge stigma and increase self-management amongst menopausal women. Ethnicity was an important aspect of the work, as Hands Inc. was keen to reach women who might not otherwise access interventions. All course participants were Black British (as were two of the three facilitators)...

Menopause is defined as permanent cessation of menstrual periods, determined retrospectively after a woman has experienced 12 months of amenorrhea without any other obvious cause. Over the years, the discourse surrounding the Climacteric was mainly elicited as a "disease of the castrates", as opposed to the feminist views. There has been a large feminist contribution to both the debate of contraception and menopause in the last few years. Over the years, menopause has been treated in a uniform fashion, as a disease, excluding the different circumstances and lived experiences that patients go through during this sensitive period...

Objective One in three women living with HIV (WLHIV) in the UK is aged 45-56, and therefore of potentially menopausal age. Little is known about the management of menopause in WLHIV in primary care. We aim to describe current knowledge and practice in the management of menopause in WLWH among primary care practitioners (PCPs). Methods A questionnaire-based study of 88 PCPs attending two sexual and reproductive health conferences. Results Almost all respondents (n = 87, 99%) routinely managed women with menopause-related symptoms; however, only 18 (20%) reported having managed menopause in WLHIV...

Since the June 2014 consensus statement published in Post Reproductive Health we have had definitive guidelines on menopause treatment from the National Institute for Clinical Excellence in November 2015. These included robust and evidence based information about many non-estrogen based treatments, which are particularly useful for patients who do not wish to take hormone replacement therapy, or who have medical contraindications to hormonal therapy such as hormone dependent cancers. Whilst none of these therapies is as effective as hormones, we must be able to advise patients about them and recommend which treatments may be helpful for individual women...
