Post menopausal and still experiencing hot flashes?!?

By  |  0 Comments

 

No need to go scouring the Internet. I’m here for you with all the latest menopause and health news.

A team of researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has found that moderate to severe hot flashes continue, on average, for nearly 5 years after menopause, and more than a third of women experience moderate/severe hot flashes for 10 years or more after menopause.

 

With plummeting hormone levels, natural menopause before age 40 can put a damper on women’s mental well-being and quality of life. But bringing testosterone back up to normal may not bring them the boost some hoped for, found a new study published online in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

 

Long-term (five-year) outcomes of breast cancer patients receiving adjuvant accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) after breast-conserving surgery show excellent tumor control, and breast cosmesis (cosmetic outcomes) with minimal late toxicity, according to a new study published in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology ● Biology ● Physics (Red Journal), the official scientific journal of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).

 

 

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
