Menopausal women often suffer from hot flashes and sleep disturbances that significantly impact their quality of life. Both human and animal studies suggest that loss of estrogens during menopause contribute to these symptoms. In the female rat, both core body temperature (CBT) and sleep are sensitive to 17β-estradiol (E2) levels, but important differences between the rat and the human patterns limit the interpretation of the results. The sleep and thermoregulation of the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) more closely resemble human patterns...

Anxiety is common among breast-cancer survivors. This analysis examined the effect of a hypnotic relaxation therapy, developed to reduce hot flashes, on anxiety levels of female breast-cancer survivors. Anxiety was assessed using a numeric analog scale and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale-Anxiety subscale. Significant reductions in anxiety were found from pre- to postintervention for each weekly session and were predictive of overall reductions in anxiety from baseline to after the last intervention...

IMPORTANCE: Between 40% and 50% of women in Western countries use complementary therapies to manage menopausal symptoms. OBJECTIVE: To determine the association of plant-based therapies with menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. DATA SOURCES: The electronic databases Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central were systematically searched to identify eligible studies published before March 27, 2016. Reference lists of the included studies were searched for further identification of relevant studies...

OBJECTIVE: Alkylating agents are implicated in premature ovarian insufficiency (POI). To optimize counseling regarding future ovarian function in survivors of adolescent cancer, we describe AMH levels in female adolescents at diagnosis, during and shortly after completion of chemotherapy. METHODS: Prospective single institution study. Participants were a mixed population of newly diagnosed post-menarchal females with malignancy. AMH was performed at diagnosis (T1), 6 months from diagnosis (T2), end of therapy or 12 months [T3, whichever comes first], 1 year post end of therapy or 24 months from diagnosis [T4, whichever comes first], 18 months from diagnosis (T5)...

Patient-centered decision making about hot flash treatments often incorporates a balance of efficacy and side effects in addition to patient preference. This systematic review examines randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing at least two non-hormonal hot flash treatments in breast cancer survivors. In July 2015, PubMed, SCOPUS, CINAHL, Cochrane, and Web of Science databases were searched for RCTs comparing active, non-hormonal hot flash treatments in female breast cancer survivors. Thirteen trials were included after identifying 906 potential studies...

Distressing symptoms such as hot flashes and sleep disturbances affect over 70% of women approaching menopause for an average of 4-7 years, and recent large cohort studies have shown that anxiety and stress are strongly associated with more severe and persistent hot flashes and can induce hot flashes. Although high estrogen doses alleviate symptoms, extended use increases health risks, and current non-hormonal therapies are marginally better than placebo. The lack of effective non-hormonal treatments is largely due to the limited understanding of the mechanisms that underlie menopausal symptoms...

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), which is a relatively new therapeutic option for saphenous varicose veins of the legs, is less invasive than conventional stripping surgery with ligation. In this study, we evaluated the safety and effectiveness of EVLA combined with ligation for severe saphenous varicose veins that were graded as ≥ C4 by the CEAP classification. We treated 119 Japanese patients (141 limbs) between July 2005 and December 2007 utilizing a 1320-nm Nd:YAG laser. The obliteration rate of the treated veins was found to be 100% over the entire follow-up period (2...

INTRODUCTION: Numerous publications suggest that many cognitive domains deteriorate with age. As far as postmenopausal women are concerned, the question remains whether the process is caused only by an ageing brain or also by the menopause. The objective of this research was to analyze a possible correlation between intensity and duration of menopausal symptoms and the level of cognitive domains measured with CNS-VS tests among post-menopausal women. METHODOLOGY: The group under examination included 383 postmenopausal women (at least 2 years after their last menstruation) from South-Eastern Poland...

Estrogen therapy is a well-known and commonly used symptomatic treatment of hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness associated with menopause. The most active estrogen, estradiol, is also understood to have a protective effect against osteoporosis. Like many hormones, though, estradiol has many roles in the body, both in males and females, and studies of these roles continue to emerge. A major function of estradiol involves obesity, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular disease; studies have shown the beneficial effects of estradiol in these areas, and this is somewhat at variance with traditional belief...

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality in both men and women, but in women these diseases manifest at a later age. After menopause, the decline in estrogen levels accelerates key atherogenic processes, including dyslipidemia, endothelial dysfunction and arterial stiffening, increasing the risk for cardiovascular events. In the healthy vasculature, estrogen has several structural and functional protective effects. The primary indication for menopausal hormone therapy is the treatment of climacteric symptoms, in particular hot flashes...

Managing the symptoms of menopause after a diagnosis of breast cancer offers some unique clinical challenges. For some women, vasomotor symptoms can be severe and debilitating, and hormone therapy is at least relatively contraindicated. Non-oestrogen therapies for hot flushes include SSRIs, clonidine, gabapentin and perhaps black cohosh extracts. Vulvovaginal atrophy can usually be alleviated by simple moisturizers, although some may need specialized physiotherapy such as vaginal dilators. In a small number, topical oestrogens may be the only treatment that works...

Most menopausal women experience vasomotor symptoms with bothersome symptoms often lasting longer than one decade. Hormone therapy (HT) represents the most effective treatment for these symptoms with oral and transdermal estrogen formulations having comparable efficacy. Findings from the Women's Health Initiative and other recent randomized clinical trials have helped to clarify the benefits and risks of combination estrogen-progestin and estrogen-alone therapy. Absolute risks observed with HT tended to be small, especially in younger women...

Given the persistent confusion about the risks and benefits of hormone therapy since 2002 and the first publication from the Women's Health Initiative's primary findings, women and health care providers are increasingly motivated to find effective, nonhormonal approaches to treat menopause-related symptoms. Complementary and alternative medicine has grown increasingly popular in the last decade. A wide array of botanic medicines is offered as an alternative approach to hormone therapy for menopause, but data documenting efficacy and safety are limited...
