Sex goes downhill for women after the menopause, scientists discover

A study by the University of Sussex found more than three quarters of the women surveyed were sexually inactive, even if they had a loving partner, and just three per cent were sexually satisfied.

AbstractIntroduction and hypothesisUsing the International Continence Society Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (ICS POP-Q) system, uterine prolapse staging requires measurement of total vaginal length (TVL). The aim of this study was to determine whether TVT is a confounder of the relationship between uterine descent and POP symptoms.MethodsThis is a retrospective study on 721 patients seen in a tertiary urogynaecological unit. All patients had undergone a standardised, in-house, physician-led questionnaire and digital POP-Q examination. Patients with a history of hysterectomy or with a dominant prolapse in the anterio...

In this study, we reveal that the C. officinale extract (COE) has great efficacy as a novel analgesic in various in vivo pain models. Administration of COE attenuated hypersensitivity in all postoperative, neuropathic, and menopausal pain models. Decreased hyperalgesia was confirmed by a mechanical withdrawal threshold assay and ultrasonic vocalization call analysis. In addition, application of COE inhibited the induction of the proinflammatory cytokines and calpain-3 on dorsal root ganglion neurons in a spared nerve injury rat model. Treatment with ferulic acid, which was identified as one of the components of COE by HPLC...

Authors: Grossmann M, Ramchand SK, Milat F, Vincent A, Lim E, Kotowicz MA, Hicks J, Teede HJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: Representatives appointed by relevant Australian medical societies used a systematic approach for adaptation of guidelines (ADAPTE) to formulate clinical consensus recommendations on assessment and management of bone health in women with oestrogen receptor-positive early breast cancer receiving endocrine therapy. The current evidence suggests that women receiving adjuvant aromatase inhibitors and pre-menopausal woman treated with tamoxifen have accelerated bone loss and that women receiving adjuvant a...

In this study, we use rigorous and unbiased approaches to demonstrate the in vivo necessity of estradiol to maintain the satellite cell number in females. Further, we use mouse genetics to show that the molecular mechanism of estradiol action is cell-autonomous signaling through estrogen receptor α (ERα). Specifically, we show the functional consequence of estradiol-ERα ablated signaling in satellite cells including impaired self-renewal, engraftment, and muscle regeneration, and the activation of satellite cell mitochondrial caspase-dependent apoptosis. Together, these results demonstrate an important ro...

Abstract Female athletes display a high prevalence of hypothalamic amenorrhea as a result of energy imbalance. In these amenorrheic athletes, the decreased luteinizing hormone / follicular stimulating hormone secretion leads to deficiency in endogenous estrogen. The severe estrogen deficiency in these athletes may increase cardiovascular risk similar to that in post-menopausal women. This review discusses the potential cardiovascular risk factors in amenorrheic athletes as a result of hypoestrogenism, which include endothelial dysfunction and unfavourable lipid profile. We also consider the potential to reverse th...

ConclusionsPremenopausal women have lower unadjusted survival than men after OHT. Post-menopausal women have significantly better five-year survival than pre-menopausal women. Menopause may contribute to improved survival after OHT.
