In the paper titled, Monthly variation of hot flashes, night sweats, and trouble sleeping: effect of season and proximity to the Final Menstrual Period (FMP) in the SWAN Menstrual Calendar substudy, by Shiobhan Harlow et al, the authors evaluated seasonal effects on menopausal symptoms. They did find that menopausal symptoms exhibit seasonal variation associated with the summer and winter. The seasonal increase in night sweats precedes the increase of hot flashes.  The hot flashes and night sweats increase notably with the final menstrual period and peaks in hot flashes and trouble sleeping were observed in July with troughs in January.

In this video, we discuss how hysterectomy, even with ovarian conservation, increased the long-term risks of depression and anxiety by over 20% compared with referent women. In this population-based cohort with 20 years of follow-up, hysterectomy with ovarian conservation was associated an absolute risk increase of 7% for depression and 5% for anxiety. Women who had a hysterectomy before age 36 had even higher absolute risk increases: 12% for depression and 10% for anxiety.
