SB013 Los años de la edad mediana La mayoría de las mujeres, durante los años de la edad mediana, perciben una gran sensación de bienestar físico y emocional. La edad mediana puede ofrecer a muchas mujeres un mayor sentido de control sobre varios aspectos de la vida. Puede ser una oportunidad para establecer nuevas metas que trascienden a aquellas de la juventud y pensar en lo que hará próximamente en la vida. Tal vez ya sus hijos sean mayores—incluso vivan por su cuenta—por lo que dispone ahora del tiempo que hacía años no tenía. Es posible que The American College of Obstetr...

ABSTRACT: Primary ovarian insufficiency describes a spectrum of declining ovarian function and reduced fecundity due to a premature decrease in initial follicle number, an increase in follicle destruction, or poor follicular response to gonadotropins. The sequelae of primary ovarian insufficiency include vasomotor symptoms, urogenital atrophy, osteoporosis and fracture, cardiovascular disease, and increased all-cause mortality. In women with primary ovarian insufficiency, systemic hormone therapy (HT) is an effective approach to treat the symptoms of hypoestrogenism and mitigate long-term hea...

ABSTRACT: Current sexuality education programs vary widely in the accuracy of content, emphasis, and effectiveness. Data have shown that not all programs are equally effective for all ages, races and ethnicities, socioeconomic groups, and geographic areas. Studies have demonstrated that comprehensive sexuality education programs reduce the rates of sexual activity, sexual risk behaviors (eg, number of partners and unprotected intercourse), sexually transmitted infections, and adolescent pregnancy. One key component of an effective program is encouraging community-centered efforts. In addition...

ABSTRACT: Aromatase inhibitors have been used for the treatment of breast cancer, ovulation induction, endometriosis, and other estrogen-modulated conditions. For women with breast cancer, bone mineral density screening is recommended with long-term aromatase inhibitor use because of risk of osteoporosis due to estrogen deficiency. Based on long-term adverse effects and complication safety data, when compared with tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors are associated with a reduced incidence of thrombosis, endometrial cancer, and vaginal bleeding. For women with polycystic ovary syndrome and a body ...

SP047 La perimenopausia: un período de cambios Durante los años de procreación, los cambios mensuales que ocurren en dos hormonas—el estrógeno y la progesterona—regulan el ciclo menstrual. Los ovarios producen estas hormonas. El estrógeno aumenta el grosor y crecimiento del endometrio (el revestimiento del útero) con el fin de prepararlo para un posible embarazo. Cerca del 14 día de su ciclo menstrual, se libera un óvulo de uno de los ovarios, un proceso que se llama ovulación. Si no se fertiliza el óvulo, no ocurre un embarazo. Entonces, los niveles de estrógeno y progesterona...
