This is a phase 3 pivotal trial of ospemifene versus placebo in women in menopause with moderate to severe vaginal dryness, a symptom of GSM. On physical examination, such women commonly have vulvar, vestibular and vaginal atrophy. This study, for the first time, utilized vulvar vestibular photography to objectively document changes in genital health. There were no changes noted in photography on placebo, however active therapy with a SERM resulted in regrowth of labia minora, normalization of the urethral gland prominence, resolution of the pallor and erythema of the vestibule and visualization of vestibular moisture. Visual assessment of genital health in such patients should be utilized in future trials.

The menopausal transition is associated with a number of adverse changes for many women, including vasomotor and depressive symptoms, anxiety, poor sleep, urogenital and sexual concerns. Pharmacotherapy is effective but can be associated with health-related concerns for some women and there is a need for non-pharmacological interventions that target a range of menopausal symptoms. Our research group developed a new cognitive behavioral therapy protocol (CBT-Meno) to target a range of commonly-reported menopausal symptoms. In this video, we summarize the results of a recent randomized controlled trial evaluating the effectiveness of the CBT-Meno protocol compared to a waitlist condition.

The video highlights the clinical significance of assessing quality of life in addition to menopause symptom severity in specialized menopause clinics. Considering both, QOL and symptom severity enables clinicians and health care workers to be able to consider each woman’s unique experience with menopause and propose treatment options to each woman’s specific needs. Furthermore, the video stresses the benefits of specialized menopause clinics offering multidisciplinary care and encourages the establishment of more clinics of this kind.
