OBJECTIVE: Both environmental and genetic risk factors contribute to pelvic organ prolapse (POP). No genome-wide study has investigated the gene-environment (G × E) interactions. In this study, we aim to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that may interact with the potential environmental factors, maximum birth weight, and age in Chinese women. METHODS: We recruited 576 women for phase 1 and 264 women for phase 2 with stages III and IV prolapse from six geographic regions of China...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the risk of ovarian cancer associated with hormone therapy regimens using a Korean population-based study. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study used national health checkup and insurance data from January 1, 2002, to December 31, 2019, provided by Korea's National Health Insurance Service. Women older than 40 years who recorded "menopause" in the questionnaire from 2002 to 2011 were included in this study. Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) preparations were classified into tibolone, combined estrogen plus progestin by the manufacturer, combined estrogen plus progestin by physician, estrogen, and topical estrogen groups...

OBJECTIVE: In this article, the quality of life (QOL) of Spanish postmenopausal early-stage breast cancer patients who have finished endocrine therapy (ET), QOL changes after endocrine therapy cessation, and the differences between two endocrine therapy modalities (tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitor [AI]) are studied. More QOL information after endocrine therapy cessation is needed. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was performed. Participating in the study were 158 postmenopausal patients who had received tamoxifen or AI for 5 years...

It is estimated that up to 50% to 90% of postmenopausal women may experience genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), which may have a detrimental impact on quality of life. One of the most effective modes of treatment of GSM is low-dose vaginal estrogens. Numerous studies have addressed the safety of these estrogens using endometrial biopsy and/or endometrial thickness on ultrasound. Based on these studies, the consensus is that low-dose vaginal estrogens do not substantially increase the risk of endometrial hyperplasia or cancer; however, the data are severely limited by short duration of follow-up...

OBJECTIVE: Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass, reduced bone strength, and increased fracture risk. We aimed to investigate the association between combined dietary antioxidant intake and the likelihood of osteoporosis in premenopausal and postmenopausal women, based on data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. METHODS: Nutrient intake data were obtained using two 24-hour recalls. Composite dietary antioxidant index (CDAI), which refers to the intake amounts of β-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, zinc, copper, and iron, was then constructed...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the association between CONUT score and postmenopausal osteoporosis. METHODS: Postmenopausal women who were seen at an outpatient clinic in a tertiary hospital for routine gynecologic examination between January 2017 and June 2022 were included in the study. Based on their T-scores, a total of 423 women were divided into two groups. Group 1 included 216 women with osteoporosis (T-score < -2.5 SD), and group 2 included 207 women with normal bone mineral density (T-score > -1 SD)...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the value of laser acupuncture (LA) on forearm bone mineral density (BMD) and wrist pain in osteoporotic postmenopausal women. METHODS: Sixty-eight postmenopausal women diagnosed with osteoporosis were randomly allocated equally to one of two sets. The drug-only group received calcium and vitamin D3 supplement containing fluoride daily for 12 weeks, whereas the drug/LA group received LA therapy for 20 minutes per session, three sessions weekly, in addition to the same supplementation...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine BRCA-mutation carrier women's interest and acceptability of participating in a study examining prophylactic salpingectomy with delayed oophorectomy (PSDO) as an alternative to the current recommendation for bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for risk reduction. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional questionnaire-based study. All women visiting the high-risk clinics for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer in a single tertiary medical center were asked to complete a questionnaire concerning the two-stage approach from October 2018 to December 2019...

OBJECTIVE: Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) is known to reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM); however, since the Women's Health Initiative study, the types and doses of female hormones used for MHT have changed considerably. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine whether MHT, which is currently widely prescribed, increases the risk of T2DM. METHOD: We performed a retrospective cohort study based on national health insurance data and cancer screening data from 2002 to 2019...

OBJECTIVE: The Cervantes-GSM questionnaire is a novel tool currently being developed to examine the impact of genitourinary symptoms on health-related quality of life in adult women with genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM). METHODS: A literature review and cognitive debriefing were conducted in women with GSM, which provided the basis for creating a draft questionnaire. This draft version was pilot-tested to check participant comprehension and ease of completion...

OBJECTIVE: Although an association between hormone therapy (HT) and the risk of developing lung cancer has been reported, the results on the topic are inconsistent. Our study objective was to investigate whether postmenopausal women who undergo HT exhibit a risk of developing lung cancer. METHODS: In this matched cohort study, we obtained the data of 38,104 postmenopausal women older than 45 years who were treated using HT between 2000 and 2015 from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database, and 152,416 matched participants who were not treated using HT were enrolled as controls at a 1:4 ratio...

Worldwide, more women with HIV are aging and entering menopause. Although a limited number of evidenced-based care recommendations are published, formal guidelines for the management of menopause in women with HIV are not available. Many women with HIV receive primary care from HIV infectious disease specialists, without any detailed assessment of menopause. Women's healthcare professionals specializing in menopause may have limited knowledge regarding the care of women with HIV. Clinical considerations for menopausal women with HIV include distinguishing menopause from amenorrhea because of other etiologies, early assessment of symptoms, and recognizing unique clinical, social, and behavioral comorbidities to facilitate care management...

IMPORTANCE: The associations between endogenous dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and DHEA sulfate (DHEAS), and depression in older women are uncertain. However, DHEA supplements are widely available over the counter in some countries, and some people may be taking DHEA with the hope of positive mood effects. OBJECTIVE: This systematic review aimed to investigate the association between endogenous DHEA/DHEAS blood concentrations and depression/depressive symptoms in community-dwelling postmenopausal women...
