This video summary provides a brief overview of the research investigating associations between shift work (SW) exposure (night and rotating shift) and the variations in age at natural menopause among adult Canadian workers. Secondary data analyses were performed using the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) database. Premenopausal women at baseline were followed prospectively for three years. Our results suggest a relationship between shift work, particularly rotating shift, and delayed onset of menopause. We speculate that disruptive circadian stimuli may play a role in menopausal onset and this warrants further investigation.

The video introduces an article presenting data from 55 participants eligible for a randomized intervention study to treat moderate/severe postmenopausal dyspareunia. It discusses whether it deserves a broader explanation than that of atrophy. Participants described dyspareunia as “burning” and “raw.” GU examinations carefully checked for painful locations. Vulvar vestibule tenderness, rather than vaginal sensitivity, was the consistent physical finding. Liquid lidocaine could extinguish the pain. A neural phenomenon in the vestibule may be responsible for postmenopausal dyspareunia.

This video is a summary of the manuscript titled ‘Metabolic effects of menopause: a cross-sectional characterization of body composition and exercise metabolism.’ The video discusses briefly the background, purpose, results, and conclusions of this study. Peri-menopause may be the optimal window for intervention, and these women should aim to prevent losses of fat-free mass and decrements in metabolism by participating in resistance and high-intensity exercise.

This study used a structural equation model to test the significance of factors associated with the psychological well-being of midlife women in South Korea based on the transactional model of stress and coping. Self-efficacy (exogenous variable) was positively associated with the psychological well-being (endogenous variable) of middle-aged women and appeared to be mediated by perceived stress, menopausal management, menopausal symptoms, and self-compassion. The predictor variables had an explanatory power of 79.5% for psychological well-being. These results can be helpful in the future development of interventions to improve psychological well-being by improving self-efficacy and coping with stress in middle-aged women.

In this video, Dr. Michael McClung describes the effects of preparations combining 0.5 mg and 1.0 mg 17β-estradiol with 100 mg of progesterone on biochemical markers of bone metabolism in postmenopausal women with a uterus who were having moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms. This was a post hoc analysis in a subset of women in the REPLENISH study that evaluated the effects of these preparations on vasomotor symptoms. Both of the combined hormone preparations significantly reduced markers of bone resorption and formation at 6 and 12 months of therapy. The research described by Dr McClung suggests that these combinations of estradiol and progesterone may have skeletal benefit in addition to improving vasomotor symptoms in postmenopausal women.

Symptoms of urinary incontinence (e.g., stress urinary incontinence [SUI]) are relatively common in women. Furthermore, overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome occurs in approximately 10% of women. Symptoms of these conditions affect health-related quality of life. Therefore, a better understanding of the prevalence and associated factors of these urinary symptoms is required for improving and preventing these symptoms. This study investigated the prevalence and factors associated with urinary symptoms using cross-sectional data from the Japan Nurses’ Health Study in 12,198 women. The prevalence of OAB was 9.5%, that of SUI was 13.9%, and that of mixed urinary incontinence was 2.1%. Age 45-54 years and postmenopausal status was significantly associated with OAB, and age group (45–49 and 50–54 years), body mass index, and parous status were significantly associated with the risk of SUI.

Video summary of the article entitled “Genitourinary syndrome of menopause: A systematic review on prevalence and treatment”. This article aimed to systematically review the literature to investigate the prevalence of GSM and its treatment. GSM is a highly prevalent condition among women. Nevertheless, women are frequently not aware of its cause and its treatment options. The findings of this review underline the need for education of patients and health care professionals regarding GSM diagnosis and treatment options.

Genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) affects nearly 50% of postmenopausal women. Yet, it is a problem that is difficult for both providers and patients to discuss—particularly the impact of GSM symptoms on a women’s daily activities. This quality improvement project implemented the Day-to-Day Impact of Vaginal Aging (DIVA) questionnaire to improve the identification and diagnosis of GSM. Our findings support the use of the DIVA questionnaire as an efficient tool in a busy women’s health practice setting to facilitate GSM identification and diagnosis.

The menopause transition is a vulnerable time for mental health and it is important to better understand the risk factors for depression during this time. This study using baseline data from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging shows that premature menopause and the use of hormone therapy, as well as low education, low household income, living alone, being nulliparous, and having low social support are associated with current depression measured using the Center for Epidemiologic studies Short Depression Scale.

Many studies suggest that zinc levels may correlate with some vaginal conditions, but the role in the diagnosis of Genitourinary syndrome of Menopause or Vulvovaginal Atrophy is not known. Cervicovaginal lavage has been widely used to investigate changes in the vagina. In our prospective cohort study the multivariate regression model revealed a significant association between vaginal atrophy and cervicovaginal lavage zinc levels. Measuring the amount of zinc in cervicovaginal lavage could aid in the diagnosis of Genitourinary syndrome of Menopause. Zinc levels of cervicovaginal lavage could be used as a new marker of vaginal atrophy.

Menopause is often accompanied by an age-associated hormonal decline, elevated blood pressure, and poor body composition, and these negative effects on health have been shown to improve following exercise training. The Vascular Research Lab at the University of Nebraska at Omaha revealed for the first time that 12 weeks of resistance band exercise training restores the aging-related hormonal decline while improving blood pressure and body composition in postmenopausal women with stage 1 hypertension.

- The exercise guidelines recommend 150 minutes/week of combined training (CT), aerobic and resistance exercises, for improvements in body composition (BC), muscle strength (MS) and physical function (PF). However, the lack of time and access to physical training facilities are commons barriers for people not to comply with the exercise guidelines.

- The high-intensity interval training (60 minutes/week - HIIT) is an exercise strategy to overcome the time commitment problem. However, there is no evidence regarding the HIIT effects on MS and PF.

- This study compared the effects of HIIT with CT on PF, BC and MS in obese postmenopausal women.

What do we really know about sex after menopause? This video summary reports on the results of a free-text analysis on sexual activity in over 4,400 postmenopausal women who took part in UKCTOCS, a large UK ovarian cancer screening trial. It shows that sexuality can change when we get older and that relationship status and health have a direct effect on sexuality and satisfaction. We believe it is important to raise awareness among women and healthcare professionals to increase the understanding of sexual issues women may face in later life.

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.
