In the paper “Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Risk Scores, Age or Years since Menopause to Predict Cardiovascular Disease in The Women’s Health Initiative” by Wild et al, the Women’s Health Initiative study found that CVD risk scores more accurately identified postmenopausal women at higher CVD risk than age or time since menopause. It appears that the biological age is more important than the chronological age when one discusses the benefits and risks of hormone therapy with a patient.

The paper “Associations of Sleep and Female Sexual Function: Good Sleep Quality Matters” by Kling et al from the Mayo Clinic, found that sexually active women were more likely to report good sleep quality compared with sexually inactive women. As sleep issues and sexual problems may be common in midlife women, treating them together may have a big impact on the quality of life.
