Menopause Matters: The Implications of Menopause Research for Studies of Mid-life Health

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Menopause is an important life course transition for women, yet health research often fails to include menopause in a meaningful way. Menopause is often conflated with age; however, research on menopause suggests that this oversimplification obscures variability that exists among women’s menopausal experiences and the implications for differential outcomes in physical health, mental health and quality of life. This paper reviews research on the menopausal transition to highlight important findings related to menopausal differences by age, race, and lifestyle factors. These differences are relevant to any health research that seeks to understand the variability of outcomes for women’s health in middle age and later life, as well as the differences between health outcomes for men and women during these life stages. Incorporating a more sophisticated, life course¬–based view of menopause in health research has the potential to improve our understanding of women’s health outcomes on multiple dimensions.
