Associated with: Menopause. 28(1):86-92, January 2021

Kirsten Dickins, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Yvonne L. Munn Center for Nursing Research at Massachusetts General Hospital discusses findings from her brief report: “Behavioral and psychological health inequities in income disparate perimenopausal women”, which describes stark differences between income disparate and non-income disparate perimenopausal women in behavioral health (smoking, substance use history, BMI, exercise) and psychological health characteristics (depressed mood, anxiety, sleep). Next directions for clinicians and researchers invested in addressing disparities in peri- and postmenopausal women are discussed.

The RESveratrol for Healthy Ageing in Women (RESHAW) study examined the effects of 12-month resveratrol supplementation on health outcomes relevant to postmenopausal women such as cognitive function, mood, cerebrovascular function, cardiometabolic markers, bone health, wellbeing and physical function. This paper reports the one of the secondary outcomes of the RESHAW study. In this video, authors Rachel Wong and Jay Jay Thaung Zaw outline the findings on aspects of wellbeing following resveratrol supplementation in postmenopausal women.

This study highlighted the correlation between number of pregnancies and cognitive malfunction in postmenopausal females. Women with more pregnancies had poorer cognitive performance, especially those who had their last pregnancy after 28 years of age and less than 12 years of education. Giving birth early in life and adequate education may be beneficial to prevent or delay cognitive impairment.

This video provides an introduction to our study “Maternal age at last birth and leukocyte telomere length in a nationally representative population of peri- and postmenopausal women.” We highlight what our study accomplishes in the context of current research regarding reproductive health decisions, telomeres, and long-term health. Specifically, our data indicate that the association between later age at last birth and longer telomere length is robust to study population. We then go on suggest that future studies consider answering these types of questions in prospective data so that we can begin to disentangle causal mechanisms that could be leading to this association.

This video summarizes the research article published in Menopause entitled “The severity of vasomotor symptoms and number of menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women and select clinical health outcomes in the Women's Health Initiative Calcium and Vitamin D Randomized Clinical Trial”. Peter Schnatz and Matthew Nudy discuss the study design, menopausal symptoms recorded, outcomes assessed and the results. Having more moderate and severe menopausal symptoms was associated with increased cardiovascular disease and stroke. In addition, the clinical significance of the results are discussed.

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.

This video explains how weight promoting medications may lead to weight gain in women during menopause. It should be noted that hormonal changes associated with menopause already lead to weight gain. However, weight gain may be exacerbated with the use of several commonly prescribed medications.

This video describes a difference in blood pressure modification during the administration of phytoestrogens, acupuncture or hormones for the treatment of climacteric symptoms. Blood pressure decreases during phytoestrogens or acupuncture but not hormones administration. Possible mechanisms and implications are discussed.
