ABSTRACT

Antecedentes: A nivel mundial, la tasa de letalidad es mayor en hombres que en mujeres. Algunos estudios lo han sugerido. Se plantea la hipótesis de que la hormona estrogénica, puede disminuir la susceptibilidad al síndrome respiratorio agudo severo coronavirus 2. Objetivo: El objetivo del estudio fue evaluar las diferencias de género en los resultados del SARS CoV-2 y analizar si existen diferencias en los resultados en mujeres premenopáusicas en comparación con posmenopáusicas. Materiales y métodos: Se incluyeron en el estudio 720 pacientes que dieron positivo (+) para SARS CoV-2 a través de la reacción en cadena de la polimerasa (PCR) con transcripción inversa en tiempo real, mediante el ensayo Thermo Fischer Taqpath, aprobado por el Consejo Indio de Investigación Médica. Los datos obtenidos fueron analizados por las características epidemiológicas, clínicas y de laboratorio de sus historias clínicas. Resultados: La tasa de mortalidad en las mujeres fue del 12,6%, mientras que la mortalidad en los hombres fue del 19,4%. En el análisis entre grupos, el 8,6% (16/185) de las mujeres murieron en el grupo de edad premenopáusica frente al 12,8% (27/211) en el grupo posmenopáusico. La proporción de mujeres que fallecieron debido a COVID difiere significativamente según la edad y el estado posmenopáusico X2 (1, n = 293) = 7,2, el valor de p es 0,007. La diferencia es estadísticamente significativa a P<0,05. Las mujeres posmenopáusicas tenían más probabilidades de fallecer debido a la infección por COVID-19 en comparación con las mujeres premenopáusicas

ABSTRACT

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Kuntai Capsules in the treatment of perimenopausal syndrome. Systematic reviews on Kuntai Capsules in the treatment of perimenopausal syndrome were retrieved from Chinese and English databases from database establishment to August 31, 2020. AMSTER-2 scale, GRADE scale and ROBIS tools were used respectively to evaluate the methodological quality, evidence quality level and bias risk of the finally included systematic reviews. A total of 6 systematic reviews with 28 outcome indicators were included. The results of AMSTER-2 methodological quality assessment showed that one of the six systematic reviews was of low quality, and the other five were of extremely low quality. GRADE scale showed that 28 clinical outcome indicators were evaluated, three of which were intermediate-level ones, and the rest were low-level or very low-level ones. Two evidences of the three intermediate evidences were total efficiency, and the other intermediate evidence was Kupperman score. ROBIS bias risk assessment showed all the included studies were of high risk. The results showed that, Kuntai Capsules were effective in the treatment of perimenopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes and sweating. The improvement of E_2 level was not as good as that in the menopause hormone therapy group, but the incidence of adverse reactions was lower than that in the menopause hormone therapy group. However, the quality of evidence needs to be improved due to the low quality of methodology and high risk of bias. It is suggested that systematic review and reasonable design should be carried out in the future, and attention should be paid to the registration of research schemes. In addition, the research reports shall be prepared according to PRISMA statement.

ABSTRACT

The potential effect mechanism of acupuncture for perimenopausal syndrome is analyzed and summarized from five aspects, i.e. the influence on reproductive endocrine system, the regulation on nervous system, the improvement of immune function, the intervention on free radical metabolism and the regulation of adverse emotions. It is believed the mechanism research of acupuncture in the treatment of perimenopausal syndrome should be deepened in terms of acupoint specificity and the influence of acupoint compatibility based on the characteristics of acupuncture therapy itself. In clinic, the research on therapeuticmethods and treatment frequency should be enhanced.

ABSTRACT

La perimenopausia produce cambios hormonales y emocionales, que podrían influir en la calidad de vida como en la percepción de estrés de las mujeres. El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la calidad de vida y su relación con la percepción de estrés y el perfil antropométrico en mujeres adultas. Se efectuó un estudio transversal en mujeres adultas (40-65 años) que concurrieron a la Fundación Hemocentro Buenos Aires (FHBA). El estado nutricional se evaluó con el índice de masa corporal (IMC) y circunferencia de cintura (CC). La calidad de vida se valoró mediante el cuestionario de calidad de vida (CV) de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (WHOQoL-Bref). La percepción de estrés (PS) se valoró por escala de estrés percibido (PSS-10). Se incluyeron 128 mujeres (52,3% premenopáusicas y 47,7 % posmenopáusicas). El 56,3% refirió tener una CV entre bastante buena y muy buena. La prevalencia de sobrepeso y obesidad fue de 60,2% (IC 95%; 51,5 - 68,2%). La percepción de CV se asoció inversamente al IMC (p= 0,0031) al igual que los dominios físico (p= 0,016) y psicológico de CV (p= 0,001). Asimismo, la PS se asoció de manera inversa a la precepción de CV (p= 0,008) y los cuatro dominios de CV.


Perimenopause produces hormonal and emotional changes, which could influence quality of life as well as stress perception in women. The objective of this study was to evaluate quality of life and its relationship with stress perception and anthropometric profile in adult women. A cross-sectional study was carried out in adult women (40-65 years old) who attended the Fundación Hemocentro Buenos Aires. Nutritional status was evaluated with body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC). Quality of life was assessed using the World Health Organization quality of life questionnaire. Perception of stress was assessed by the perceived stress scale (PSS-10). We included 128 women (52.3% premenopausal and 47.7% postmenopausal). Over half (56.3%) reported having a quality of life between fairly good and very good. The prevalence of overweight and obesity was 60.2% (95% CI, 51.5 - 68.2%). The perception of quality of life was inversely associated to the BMI (p= 0.0031) as well as the physical (p= 0.016) and psychological domains of quality of life (p= 0.001). Similarly, perceived stress was associated inversely with the quality of life perception (p= 0.008) and the four quality of life domains.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La hemorragia uterina anormal, durante la perimenopausia y la posmenopausia tiene prevalencia hasta del 35 y el 11% respectivamente. Las pacientes, en estas etapas de sus vidas, consultan por hemorragia con mucha frecuencia, viéndose enfrentadas, dentro del síndrome climatérico, a anemia, dolor pélvico, abstinencia sexual, alteraciones en compromisos sociales y profesionales y temores de sufrir enfermedades ginecológicas malignas; condiciones que afectan profundamente la calidad de vida. Es por ello que los médicos debemos estar bien preparados para tratarlas, oportunamente, tanto en consulta externa como en salas de urgencias. Objetivo: Revisar las causas de la hemorragia uterina anormal perimenopáusica y posmenopáusica y agruparlas en una clasificación coherente, a fin de facilitar su enfoque y manejo, en sus formas de presentación crónica y urgente. Material y métodos: Revisión de la literatura de los últimos 10 años, desde enero de 2010 hasta junio de 2020, en idiomas inglés y español, en libros de texto, pubMed, Ovid, Guías clínicas y Cochrane library. Resultados y conclusiones: Actualmente, contamos con buenos métodos para diagnosticar las causas de la hemorragia anormal perimenopáusica y posmenopéusica e igualmente, diferentes opciones de tratamiento para cada paciente, en particular. Las causas son benignas en su mayoría; solo hay un 10% de riesgos de cáncer endometrial. Agrupadas en una clasificación coherente, dichas causas permiten un enfoque fácil y práctico para las mejores posibilidades de tratamiento medico-quirúrgico de ellas en sus dos formas de presentación: crónica y urgente.


Introduction: Abnormal uterine bleeding during perimenopause and postmenopausal bleeding, have a prevalence of up to 35% and 11% respectively. Patients, at these stages of their lives, consult for bleeding very often facing anemia, pelvic pain, sexual abstinence, social and professional fears of malignant gynecological diseases, profoundly altering the "quality of life".That is why doctors must be well prepared to treat them, in a timely manner from bleeding, in external consultation or in emergency rooms. Objective: To review the causes of perimenopausal and postmenopausal abnormal uterine bleeding and to group them into a coherent classification, in order to facilitate their approach and management, in their chronic and urgent forms of presentation. Material and methods: Literature review of the last 10 years, from January 2010 to June 2020, in English and Spanish languages, in textbooks, PubMed, Ovid, Clinical Guides and Cochrane library. Results and conclusions: Currently, we have good methods to diagnose the causes of abnormal perimenopausal and postmenopausal bleeding; and also, different treatment options for each patient, in particular. The causes are mostly benign, there is only a 10% risk of endometrial cancer. Grouped in a coherent classification they allow an easy and practical approach, to the best medical-surgical treatment possibilities, in its two forms of presentation: chronic and urgent.

ABSTRACT

The efficacy and safety of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture in the treatment of kidney-deficiency and bloodstasis perimenopausal sleep disorders were evaluated. A total of 67 subjects who completed the study were randomly divided into two groups. The traditional Chinese medicine group was orally given Bushen Huoxue Anshen Fang,and the acupuncture group was given acupuncture treatment. Both groups were treated for three consecutive courses of treatment,with a course of treatment of 30 days. The changes of PSQI score,improved Kupperman score,TCM syndromes,serum sex hormone,coagulation,routine blood and urine,liver and kidney function and electrocardiogram were observed before and after treatment. After treatment,the total effective rates of Chinese medicine group and acupuncture group were similar or respectively 91. 43% and 87. 50%. The scores of PSQI,improved Kupperman and TCM syndromes in both groups decreased significantly( P<0. 05). The effect of improving Kupperman score in TCM group was better than that in acupuncture group( P< 0. 01). The effect of improving PSQI and TCM syndromes was similar to that in acupuncture group. The levels of serum FSH and LH were decreased in both groups( P<0. 05),but with no significant difference between the two groups; the level of serum E2 was increased in both groups,but with no significant difference. Compared with before treatment,PT was increased in traditional Chinese medicine group( P<0. 05),but with no significant difference in APTT,TT and FIB before and after treatment; PT and TT were prolonged in acupuncture group( P<0. 05),but with no significant difference in APTT and FIB before and after treatment. The effect of improving PT and TT in the acupuncture group was better than that in the traditional Chinese medicine group( P<0. 05). The results showed that TCM and acupuncture had similar therapeutic effects on perimenopausal sleep disorder of kidney deficiency and blood stasis type,and were safe and reliable. The mechanism was related to the improvement of serum FSH and E2 levels.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the effect of mindfulness meditation training for improving anxiety, depression and sleep disorders in perimenopausal women.@*METHODS@#Intervention by menopause meditation training was delivered in 121 perimenopausal women with anxiety, depression or sleep disorders in Baiyun District, Guangzhou. Before and after the intervention, the Self-rating Anxiety Scale, Self-rating Depression Scale and Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index were used for assessment of changes in the conditions of the women.@*RESULTS@#After menopausal meditation training, the perimenopausal women showed significant improvement in the mean scores of Self-rating Anxiety Scale (48.26 ± 6.47; =3.865, < 0.01), Selfrating Depression Scale (50.27 ± 6.54; =4.541, < 0.01) and Pittsburgh Sleep Questionnaire (10.64 ± 4.38; =5.596, < 0.01). The symptom remission rates differed significantly among the women with different self-practice frequencies ( < 0.01). The remission rates of anxiety, depression and sleep disorder increased significantly with the frequency of self-exercise ( < 0.01).@*CONCLUSIONS@#Mindfulness meditation training can effectively alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and depression and improve the quality of sleep in perimenopausal women, and the frequency of the exercise is positively correlated with the improvements. Mindfulness meditation training can be an effective intervention for improving the mental health of perimenopausal women.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objectives: to evaluate the sociodemographic, clinical, histopathological, cytopathological and microbiological profile of women with cervical cancer treated at Oncology Center in Pernambuco, located in the city of Caruaru-PE. Methods: a retrospective study was carried out to evaluate the medical records of women with cervical cancer treated for radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy between January 2014 and December 2016. For the analysis of variables, the absolute and relative frequencies were calculated. Results: there was a predominance of cases in the age range between 40 and 59 years (45.37%), non-white race/color (91.75%) and incomplete primary education (44.32%). Squamous carcinoma was present in 85.19% of the cases, with a moderately differentiated histological grade being the most common (53.41%). Most women underwent radiotherapy and associated chemotherapy (72.72%) and had 3 or more pregnancies before diagnosis (73.44%). Cytopathology has more frequently identified high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL) cases (45.83%) and cocci and/or bacilli (66.67%) were the most evident microorganisms. Conclusions: the results showed that the perimenopause age, low educational level, multiparity, cytopathologic result of HSIL and histopathological examination evidencing moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma were among the characteristics most related to cervical cancer in the population studied.


Resumo Objetivos: avaliar o perfil sociodemográfico, clínico, histopatológico, citopatológico e microbiológico de mulheres com câncer de colo do útero atendidas em Centro de Oncologia Pernambucano. Métodos: estudo retrospectivo, que avaliou os prontuários de mulheres com câncer de colo do útero atendidas para tratamento radioterápico e/ou quimioterápico entre janeiro de 2014 e dezembro de 2016. Para a análise das variáveis foram calculadas as frequências absolutas e relativas. Resultados: houve predominância de casos na faixa etária entre 40 a 59 anos (45,37%), de raça/cor não branca (91,75%) e com até o ensino fundamental incompleto (44,32%). O carcinoma escamoso esteve presente em 85,19% dos casos, sendo o grau histológico moderadamente diferenciado o mais comum (53,41%). A maioria das mulheres realizaram radioterapia e quimioterapia associadas (72,72%) e apresentaram 3 gestações ou mais antes do diagnóstico (73,44%). A citopatologia identificou, com maior frequência, casos de high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion(HSIL) (45,83%) e cocos e/ou bacilos (66,67%) foram os microrganismos mais evidentes. Conclusões: os resultados revelaram que a idade perimenopausa, baixo grau de escolaridade, multiparidade, resultado citopatológico de HSIL e exame histopatológico evidenciando carcinoma escamoso moderadamente diferenciado, estavam entre as características mais relacionadas ao câncer de colo do útero na população estudada.

ABSTRACT

While perimenopausal women have low fecundity, they are still capable of becoming pregnant and the majority of pregnancies occurring during perimenopause are unintended pregnancies. Therefore, even during perimenopause, contraception must be used if unintended pregnancies are to be avoided. However, many perimenopausal women and healthcare providers believe that older people should not take combined oral contraceptives (COC) because doing so may be dangerous. However, to date, there is no evidence that taking COC presents an increased risk of cardiovascular events or breast cancer for middle-aged women as compared to other age groups, and in their recommendations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also do not list age itself as a contraindication for COC. Perimenopausal women often experience menstrual irregularity, heavy menstrual bleeding, and vasomotor symptoms. Taking COCs can help control these symptoms and significantly reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, and colorectal cancer. The objective of the present review is to examine the usage methods of COC among perimenopausal women and the health issues that may arise from taking COC in perimenopausal women.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Heyan Kuntai Capsule (, HYKT) and hormone therapy (HT) on perimenopausal syndromes (PMSs).</p><p><b>METHODS</b>From 2005 to 2008, 390 women with PMSs were recruited from 4 clinic centers. The inclusion criteria included ages 40 to 60 years, estradiol (E2) below 30 ng/L, and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) above 40 IU/L, etc. The patients were randomly assigned to HYKT group or HT group by random number table method, administrated HYKT or conjugated estrogen with/without medroxyprogesterone acetate tablets for 12 months. During treatment, the patients were interviewed quarterly, Kupperman Menopausal Index (KMI) scores, hot flush scores, insomnia scores, Menopause-Specific Quality of Life (MENQOL) scores and adverse effects were used for evaluating drug efficacy and safety respectively. The last interview was made at the end of 12-month treatment RESULTS: After treatment, KMI scores of HYKT group and HT group were both significantly decreased compared with baseline (P <0.01) and there was no significant difference between groups (P >0.05), except that KMI of HYKT group was higher after 3-month treatment (P <0.05). After treatment, hot flush and insomnia scores were both improved significantly in two groups (P <0.01); and HT had a better performance than HYKT in improving hot flush (P <0.05). MENQOL were significantly improved in both groups after treatment (P <0.01); but there was no significant difference between two groups (P >0.05). The incidence of adverse event in the HYKT group was much lower than that in the HT group (P <0.01).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>HYKT could effectively relieve PMSs and improve patients quality of life without severe adverse reactions. Although HYKT exerted curative effects more slowly than hormone, it possessed better safety profile than hormone.</p>

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To observe the clinical efficacy of " needles therapy" combined with moxibustion at yongquan (KI 1) on perimenopausal insomnia (PMI) with heart-kidney imbalance.@*METHODS@#One hundred patients of PMI with heart-kidney imbalance were randomly divided into a medication group and an acupuncture group, 50 cases in each group. In the medication group, diazepam and oryzanol were given. " needles therapy" combined with moxibustion at yongquan (KI 1) were applied in the acupuncture group. The treatment was given for 2 courses, 10 days as a course. Before and after treatment, the Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) scale was used to evaluate the improvement of sleep quality in the two groups, and the clinical efficacy was compared.@*RESULTS@#After 2 courses of treatment, the total PSQI score was (4.88±1.80) in the acupuncture group, which was significantly lower than (8.00±1.93) in the medication group, and the difference was statistically significant (<0.05). Except for the sleep efficiency, the scores of other components in the acupuncture group were lower than those in the medication group, and the differences were statistically significant (all <0.05). The total effective rate was 90.0% (45/50) in the acupuncture group and 68.0% (34/50) in the medication group. The difference was statistically significant (<0.05). There was no obvious adverse reactions in entire course of the treatment in the acupuncture group and the safety was satisfactory.@*CONCLUSION@#" needles therapy" combined with moxibustion at Yongquan (KI 1) on PMI with heart-kidney imbalance has good clinical effect.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To compare the differences in the clinical therapeutic effects on perimenopausal syndrome (PMS) between the combined treatment with the transcutaneous electrostimulation at Shuitu (ST 10) and the seed-pressure therapy at the auricular points and the hormone replacement therapy.@*METHODS@#A total of 64 PMS patients were divided into an observation group (30 cases) and a control group (34 cases) according to patient's willingness. In the observation group, the transcutaneous electrostimulation at Shuitu (ST 10) was combined with the seed-pressure therapy at the auricular points. The stimulation intensity at Shuitu (ST 10) was ranged from 15 to 20 mA, for 20 min in each treatment, twice a week. The 8 treatments made one course and 3 courses were required. Additionally, the seed-pressure therapy was used at neifenmi (CO), Shenmen (TF), luanchao, zigong, gan (CO), shen (CO), once a week, retained for 5 days. The 4-week treatment was as one course and a total of 3 courses were required. In the control group, the hormone replacement therapy was applied. On Day 5 of menstruation, progynova was prescribed for oral administration, 1 mg, once a day, continuously for 21 days. On Day 12 in the oral administration of progynova, dydrogesterone was used, 20 mg, once every day, continuously for 10 days. Totally, 3 courses were required. Separately, before treatment and in 1 and 3 months after treatment, Kuppermann score, the sexual hormone levels [follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH) and estradiol (E)] and the adverse reactions were observed in the patients of the two groups.@*RESULTS@#In 1 and 3 months after treatment, Kuppermann scores were reduced significantly as compared with those before treatment in the two groups (all 0.05). In the control group, the incidences of the adverse reactions such as vaginal bleeding, bread distending pain and endometrial thickening were higher than those in the observation group [17.6% (6/34) vs 0% (0/30), 20.6% (7/34) vs 3.3% (1/30), 8.8% (3/34) vs 0% (0/30), all <0.05].@*CONCLUSION@#The combined treatment with the transcutaneous electrostimulation at Shuitu (ST 10) and the seed-pressure therapy at the auricular points achieves the similar therapeutic effects on PMS as compared with the hormone replacement therapy. This combined therapy effectively relieves the clinical symptoms and improves the sexual hormone levels. The adverse reactions and the complications are less obviously as compared with the hormone replacement therapy.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: There are many drugs for of symptomatic fibroids. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists are the well known drugs. Also, aromatase inhibitors are effective. All published studies surveyed the effect of one of these two drugs. In this study as the first study decided to evaluate the effectiveness of the combination of GnRH agonists + aromatise inhibitor on the uterine fibroids. METHODS: A cross-sectional prospective case series study was performed on 10 known cases of uterine fibroids late perimenopause, at least 3 myomas >5 cm, abnormal uterine bleeding and anemia due to fibroids, candidate for hysterectomy, no tendency to surgery. A single dose of Diphereline 11.25 mg, SR plus 2.5 mg of Letrozole daily for 4 weeks with add-back therapy + calcium carbonate were used. The second dose of Diphereline 11.25 mg, SR was used 3 months after the first injection. The patients were followed until 3 years. RESULTS: The mean age of the study group was 49.90 ± 1.66. The mean fibroid size reduced from 15.05 ± 57.20 cm to 13.56 ± 39.39 cm (P = 0.012) and fibroid volume reduced from 72.78 ± 110.6 to 50.96 ± 64.2 (P = 0.116). There was no signification changes in the serum level of hormones at the end of six months. Eight cases were menopause at the end of the study and hypoestrogenism symptoms did not happened in none of the cases until the end of 24 months. Except in one case, there was no need to do surgery on others. CONCLUSIONS: Combination of Diphereline + Letrozole probably could prevent surgery in cases that have multiple fibroids, perimenopause, anemic and candidate for surgery.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN La perimenopausia puede afectar el peso corporal, la ingesta alimentaria y el estado anímico de las mujeres. El objetivo de este trabajo fue describir la relación entre estado nutricional, consumo de alimentos no nutritivos y percepción de estrés en mujeres adultas (40-65años) habitantes de Vedia, Provincia de Bs. As (Argentina). Estudio descriptivo transversal, muestra no probabilística a las mujeres, se las clasificó según etapa biológica en pre y postmenopáusicas y se controló el consumo de ansiolíticos. Se evaluó estado nutricional mediante índice de masa corporal (IMC) y riesgo cardio-metabólico (RCM) según circunferencia de cintura (CC). La percepción de estrés (PS) se valoró por escala de estrés percibido (PSS-10). Se estimó el consumo de alimentos no nutritivos, bebidas azucaradas y alimentos ricos en grasas. Se incluyeron 91 mujeres, edad media de 52,1 años (DS= 7,7) (40% premenopáusicas; 60% posmenopáusicas). El 62,6% presentó sobrepeso u obesidad y 70,3% RCM. La media de PS fue 15 puntos (DS= 6,0), siendo mayor en las postmenopáusicas (p= 0,03) y en las que consumían ansiolíticos (p< 0,001). La PS no se asoció al IMC (p= 0,83) ni a la distribución adiposa (p= 0,95). El consumo de alimentos no nutritivos fue similar en ambos grupos, sólo se registró un consumo mayor de chocolates en posmenopáusicas (p= 0,03). Así, el climaterio y la menopausia se deberían abordar por un equipo interdisciplinario, capacitados desde una perspectiva biopsicosocial y no solo desde la óptica clínica.


ABSTRACT Perimenopause is a critical period that can affect body weight, food intake and mood. Our objective was to describe the relationship between nutritional status, nonnutritive food consumption and perception of psychological stress in adult women (40-65 years old) from Vedia, Province of Buenos Aires (Argentina). A cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out using a non-probabilistic sample. Women were classified according to the biological stage in pre-and postmenopausal and anxiolytic consumption was controlled. Nutritional status was measured by body mass index (BMI) and cardiometabolic risk (CMR) by waist circumference (WC). The perception of stress (PS) was assessed using the PSS-10 scale. Consumption of non-nutritive foods, sugary drinks and high-fat foods was estimated. Ninety-one women were included with a mean age of 52,1 years (SD= 7,7) (40% premenopausal; 60% postmenopause); 62,6% were overweight or obese" and 70,3% had CMR according to WC. The mean of PS for the sample was 15 points (SD= 6,0), which was higher in postmenopausal women (p= 0,03) and in those who consumed anxiolytics (p<0,001). PS was not associated with BMI (p= 0,83) nor with adipose distribution (p= 0,95). The consumption of non-nutritive foods was similar among women in both biological stages, except the consumption of chocolate that was higher in the postmenopausal (p= 0,03). Thus, the climacteric and menopause should be addressed by an interdisciplinary team, trained from a biopsychosocial perspective and not only from a clinical perspective.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El síndrome climatérico se puede definir como el conjunto de signos y síntomas que se presentan en la perimenopausia y postmenopausia, incluye síntomas vasomotores, alteraciones del sueño, alteraciones psicológicas y atrofia genital. Objetivo: Conocer el impacto del síndrome climatérico sobre la función sexual y calidad de vida de las mujeres que atraviesan esta etapa de la vida. Métodos: Se trata de una revisión bibliográfica. Los artículos revisados fueron obtenidos de fuentes como Google Académico, Pubmed, LILACS; la selección de la bibliografía comprendió artículos publicados entre 2011 y 2018. Conclusiones: La sexualidad en este periodo y la vejez es un tema de vital importancia para la salud pública. La disfunción sexual como resultado del síndrome climatérico desencadena sentimientos de baja autoestima, desapego y frustración, lo que ocasiona en la mujer que lo padece desinterés por el sexo y un impacto negativo muy claro en su calidad de vida.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Se analizó la relevancia de la menopausia y el apoyo social en las diferencias en salud entre mujeres y hombres mediante un estudio transversal realizado con 710 mujeres y 606 hombres de la población general española con edades entre 20 y 65 años. Se encontró que, aunque en la juventud apenas había diferencias entre hombres y mujeres, a partir de la perimenopausia las mujeres informaban de más insomnio y síntomas vasomotores que los hombres, así como de más dolor durante la postmenopausia. El apoyo social percibido se asociaba con mejor salud, sobre todo en las mujeres en postmenopausia y premenopausia.


ABSTRACT This study examined the relevance of the menopause and social support in gender differences in health. A cross-sectional survey of a general population sample comprising 710 women and 606 men, aged between 20 and 65 was carried out. No health differences were found between younger men and women. However, perimenopausal women reported more insomnia and vasomotor symptoms, as well as they reported more pain than men through the postmenopause. Perceived social support was associated with better health, especially in premenopausal and postmenopausal women.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The common climacteric symptoms experienced by women 40 years and above can be classified into vasomotor, physical, psychological and sexual complaints. This may be associated with sociodemographic factors. The timing of menopause is also believed to be associated with sociodemographic factors.OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence and associated factors of climacteric symptoms experienced by women ages 40 years and above seen at a Tertiary Hospital in Metro Manila.METHODS: By using Modified Menopause Rating Scale questionnaire (Rahman, et al.), 360 Filipino women aged 40 years and above were interviewed and were asked of their sociodemographic data and presence of climacteric symptoms (divided into somatic, psychological and urogenital domain).RESULTS: Majority of the participants had menopause at age 51, with mean age at menopause of 48.4 ± 3.58 (SD) years. The most prevalent symptom reported was joint and muscular discomfort (65-75%) and this was more common among perimenopausal women. This was also the most common reason for absence at work of the participants. There was no significant association found between sociodemographic factors and climacteric symptoms, as well as with the timing of menopause.CONCLUSIONS: Unlike other studies in different countries, no significant association was found on this study between sociodemographic factor and climacteric symptoms. Sociodemographic factors also did not show any significant association with the timing of menopause.
