How serious can menopause be?

"Most women perceive menopause as relatively benign. However, because many women have little knowledge about menopause, medical professionals must reassure patients that menopause is a normal part of aging. Women who have a history of smoking or excessive alcohol consumption should be advised to stop these habits before their menopause." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are common treatments for menopause?

"The predominant treatments used by US women to combat menopausal symptoms were hormone replacement therapy and herbal treatments. Hormone replacement therapy is associated with fewer adverse events than herbal treatments, but more prevalent side effects. Generally, American women prefer hormonal treatment over nonhormonal alternatives, whereas European women prefer nonhormonal alternatives." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Can menopause be cured?

"There is little evidence supporting the use of hormone replacement therapy to treat pelvic pain in post-menopausal women. Studies have found no difference in effectiveness between estrogen alone and combined estrogen plus progestogen in relieving menopausal symptoms. Estrogen treatment appears effective in reducing hot flashes and osteoporosis but does not affect the risk of heart disease or overall mortality. There is encouraging preliminary evidence that aromatase inhibitors can reduce bone loss and improve quality of life in post-menopausal women. However, they prolonging the effect of treatment by two to three years, so this is unlikely to be clinically relevant at present. Evidence is also limited on the effectiveness of alternative treatments like herbal remedies, acupuncture, massage, relaxation techniques and biofeedback." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of menopause?

"The signs of menopause differ according to age, ethnicity and race. While white women experience a variety of symptoms, black women only experience one major symptom: hot flashes. Menopause can be defined as the cessation of menstrual cycles. But there are other factors that move around this definition e.g. blood loss (menorrhagia), vaginal atrophy, osteopenia, depression, and bone loss. These should always be taken into consideration when diagnosing menopause. Women can also be diagnosed with FTMH by the presence of any of these symptoms. But this is not always the case since these symptoms are common among women without hormonal imbalance or irregularities." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Who should consider clinical trials for menopause?

"The authors argue that if individual patients are the target population, then only a small proportion would qualify. However, if the 'target' were an entire population, then the value of clinical trials becomes obvious. For instance, it could take ten years to establish effectiveness or lack thereof for a new drug, but there is no doubt about its value if patients, especially those at risk, find it effective. Clinical trials provide valuable data about both efficacy and safety. In addition, it is an opportunity to evaluate adverse effects, some of which can be very unpleasant and difficult to identify. As well as providing information on effectiveness, participants in clinical trials can gain confidence in their treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the average age someone gets menopause?

"Approximately 4.0 % of women reach menopause between the ages of 45 and 54 years old, whereas 1.9 % of women reach menopause before age 45 and 30.0 % of women attain menopause between the ages of 45 and 54 years old.

However, it has been reported that the average age of menopause varies by geographic region: 22.5 years in Europe; 25.6 years in North America; 27.8 years in South America and Asia; and 29." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is menopause?

"Menopause is a natural process, which happens when the ovaries stop producing estrogen. Most women start experiencing symptoms between ages 45 and 50. However, some of them start having symptoms as early as 35 or 36. Symptoms can include sleeping too much, feeling tired, weight gain, mood swings and hot flashes. Many menopause symptoms might get worse over time. But it varies from woman to woman. Some may feel no symptoms at all; others may suffer debilitating night sweats and extreme fatigue. Although menopause is an important stage in a woman's life, the consequences of premature onset are often devastating." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the latest research for menopause?

"Most studies focus on symptomatic menopause rather than on the underlying mechanisms. It is essential that future research should consider both the timing and duration of menopause. Lifespan perspective is also important. Longitudinal studies are essential for understanding the causes of age-related changes such as menopause." - Anonymous Online Contributor
