* World Menopause Day 2019 *
World Menopause Day is held every year on the 18th October". The theme of World Menopause Day 2019 is Testosterone for Women at Midlife Menopause is a time of change for women and provides an opportunity for health assessment and promotion. Members of the Australasian Menopause Society Limited (AMS) are doctors and other health care professionals who each have a special interest in women's health in midlife and menopause, and the promotion of healthy ageing. Whether information is needed about peri-menopause, MHT/HRT and alternatives, osteoporosis or how to locate a doctor interested in women's health, the AMS seeks to bring accurate, evidence-based information to health care workers and the wider community. International Menopause Society The International Menopause Society is marking the day by publishing a report encouraging women to "have a health audit - and take action at the time of the menopause to avoid chronic diseases in later life."
MenopauseAround one third of a woman's life is lived after the menopause. The age of the natural menopause among women in developed countries is between 50 and 52 years, whereas, in less developed countries, menopause often occurs in the late '40s. In the decade after the menopause, women become vulnerable to chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, cognitive decline (e.g. Alzheimer's disease), and cancer; so the early postmenopause years provide the opportunity for women to take preventative steps to steer a positive course for their future health.
