Why, mrs. Robinson? The seduction of teenage boys by women in classic films.

Why, mrs. Robinson? The seduction of teenage boys by women in classic films. Am J Psychoanal. 2014 Sep;74(3):233-49 Authors: Colarusso CA Abstract Utilizing three classic films, and psychoanalytic developmental theory, this paper explores the conscious and unconscious reasons why older women become sexually involved with teenage boys. After a presentation of aspects of young adult and midlife female development and a psychodynamic explanation for the developmental similarities between adolescence and menopause, each of the three films is summarized. The dynamics behind the women's behavior, as presented in the films, are discussed. The third section of the paper discusses similarities and differences among the three women and the negative effects on the boys' development. PMID: 25117782 [PubMed - in process]

Genome‑wide DNA methylation analysis of uterosacral ligaments in women with pelvic organ prolapse. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Nov 13;: Authors: Zhang L, Zheng P, Duan A, Hao Y, Lu C, Lu D Abstract Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is an increasingly serious health problem that impairs quality of life and is caused by multiple additive genetic and environmental factors. As the uterosacral ligaments (ULs) provide primary support for the pelvic organs, it was hypothesized that disruption of these ligaments (as a result of aberrant methylation) may lead to a loss of support and eventually contribute to POP. In the pres...

CONCLUSION: The uterus of postmenopausal woman undergo major morphological changes (mainly atrophic lesions in the endometrium and myometrium), leading to a decline in their morphometric parameters over time from the last menstruation. Localization and number of cells showing the expression of steroid receptors: ER-α, PR, and AR in the uterus of postmenopausal women, depending on the time interval from the last menstruation.

When you think of menopause, you might think of hot flashes and night sweats. But many women also experience symptoms of depression. The risk of depression doubles or even quadruples during the menopausal transition, which has researchers looking for ways to address — or even prevent — the problem. One study published in JAMA Psychiatry found that hormone therapy may help ward off symptoms of peri- and postmenopausal depression in some women. Researchers found that perimenopausal and early postmenopausal women who were treated with hormones were less likely to experience symptoms of depression than women in the...

ConclusionGlobal and acetylated proteome Profiles in ovary differ between the premenopausal and postmenopausal groups. These proteomic-level changes may offer some potential biological markers to identify the pathological changes in ovary and help relieve and treat the associated signs and symptoms, and ultimately improve women ’s health care.

As adults, women have higher rates of asthma and allergic disease as well as increased asthma severity compared to men.1 Pre or peri-menstrual worsening of asthma symptoms (PMA) were reported in 17% of women enrolled in the severe asthma research program, with 52% of these women with PMA having severe asthma.2, 3 Further, use of birth control medications or hormone replacement therapy during peri or post-menopause was also linked to worsening of asthma in some women.2, 4 Mouse models of asthma showed estrogen signaling through estrogen receptor-alpha (ER- α), and not ER-β, increased allergic airway inflammation,...
