Menopause

by Lynae Brayboy, MD

Menopause is a routine, nonpathologic condition involving the permanent cessation of menses for at least 12 months. Menopause occurs in all menstruating women due to nonpathologic estrogen deficiency, with the median age of onset being 51. Most women experience vasomotor symptoms, but menopause can affect many areas, some of which are the urogenital and cardiovascular systems.

There are various treatment modalities available, with specific considerations related to comorbidities like osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer risk, among others.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (in a nutshell).
By Steve P. on 16. June 2017 for Hormone Replacement Therapy

I’m just getting an over view at the moment however, Dr Lynae Brayboy’s lectures are lovely, clear and informative thank you! Interesting that alternative treatments are also mentioned though made clear not FDA approved. But that is expected from the FDA as they tend only to be concerned with synthetic drugs and not herbal treatments. While most herbal treatments have been used throughout history and are said to have little or no side effects can still be dangerous (contraindicated) if taken with or along side prescribed medications. I believe this comes across pretty clearly in these lectures, that strive to be unbiased. But as stated Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a controversial treatment.
