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...

(Natural News) Menopause is a natural event in the life of a woman in which the reproductive system starts to “shut down,” when the menstruation cycle ceases.

Bilateral oophorectomy (or surgical menopause) is associated with short and long-term clinical consequences. These effects are more pronounced in women who have a bilateral oophorectomy (BO) before age 45 years (early surgical menopause) [1]. Menopausal symptoms associated with early surgical menopause, such as vasomotor and urogenital symptoms, sexual dysfunction, sleep disturbances, and mood swings can be sudden and severe. In the long term, these women are at a greater risk of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, and early mortality than women with natural menopause [1 –5].

Abstract As global life expectancy improves, women are expected to spend more than one-third of their lives in the status of menopause. In China, many women suffer from menopausal symptoms during this period, which impacts their well-being and quality of life. However, most Chinese women simply endure menopausal symptoms. Since the Chinese Menopause Society was founded in 1999, several versions of the guidelines for menopause management and menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) have been published; international cooperation has strengthened; menopause-related activities have been advocated; and popular knowledge of men...

Abstract The existing medical literature suggests that estrogens may cause breast cancer but, paradoxically, can also prevent this neoplasm under specific circumstances. Appropriate interpretation of this complex data requires an understanding of emerging concepts of tumor biology. A substantial body of data, including animal models and epidemiologic studies, suggests that estrogens contribute to the development of breast cancer. Additionally, pre-clinical experiments indicate that the responsible mechanisms include both estrogen receptor α-dependent and -independent effects (ERα-dependent and ER&alpha...
