Welcome to the July 2022 issue of Menopause!
Included in this issue is an updated Position Statement from NAMS on hormone therapy, which we hope you find informative.
In the past we had very little knowledge of the scenarios that triggered menopause to occur at a particular age. In this issue we present three papers on the subject - one that demonstrates that childhood maltreatment may affect the menopause transition; a second that explores the association between shift exposure and variations in age at natural menopause; and a third that looks at the association of plant-based diet and early onset of menopause. With increased attention to diversity, we present a paper that describes lessons learned in clinical research recruitment of mid-life Latinas; we present another report on racial/ethnic disparities in the diagnosis and management of menopause symptoms in women veterans. In addition, we read about the risks of high depressive symptoms after the final menstrual period.
We hope you find this issue stimulating.
