Welcome to the June issue of Menopause!

We are proud to include the North American Menopause Society's Nonhormone Therapy Position Statement, the likes of which have become the standard of care in menopausal medicine. The timing of this publication could not be more appropriate given the recent FDA approval of a neurokinin 3 receptor antagonist for hot flashes.

This issue features many interesting clinical articles, including an Invited Review by Lauren Streicher, which describes in great detail the evaluation and treatment of dyspareunia. With the publicity from the Women's Health Initiative, more women are electing to accept vaginal estrogens rather than systemic ones and Stanczyk et al bring us up to date on the endometrial safety of these options. Continuing with this topic, Christmas et al distinguish between systemic estrogens and vaginal estrogens on urinary symptoms. We also include a systematic review by Meziou et al on hormone therapy and sexual function.

Although the above are predominantly “how to" articles we, of course, are equally as proud of our original research and basic science studies.

Thank you for all of your support!​
