  3. 3. It is caused by ovarian failure.
  4. 4. It marks the end of a women’s reproductive life
  5. 5. It occurs normally between the ages of 45– 55
  6. 6. years and at a mean age of 51 years.
  7. 7. It is a physiological process</li></ul>Peri-menopause is a period immediately before and after the menopause.<br />www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  8. 8. Premature ovarian failure ----- the cessation of menses before the age of 40 years.<br /> Artificial menopause ------ the cessation of menses is secondary to some causes, such as oophorectomy, radiation therapy.<br />www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  9. 9. Peri-menopausal Period Syndrome<br /><ul><li>peri-menopause accompanied by the symptoms of climacteric, including hot flashes, excessive perspiration, night sweets, depression, agitation, vaginal dryness, insomnia
  10. 10. The basic causes of the climacteric syndrome are a progressive decline in ovarian production on estrogens and other sex hormones</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  11. 11. Negative Feedback<br />Secretion of estrogens decreased (ovary) <br /> ↓<br />FSH increased (40-45 years old)<br /> ↓<br /> FSH,LH increased(45-50 years old)<br /> ↓<br /> FSH increased 14 times<br /> LH increased 3 times(menopause)<br /> ↓<br />FSH, LH gradually decline (3 years after menopause)<br />www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  12. 12. Symptoms and signs<br />1. Early Symptoms and signs<br /> <br />1) menstraution disorder<br /><ul><li>Oligomenorrhea--- intervals greater than 35 days.
  13. 13. Polymenorrhea---- intervals less than 21 days
  14. 14. hypermenorrhea
  15. 15. amenorrhea
  16. 16. menopause</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  17. 17. 2) vasomotor symptoms( hot flashes, sweats)<br /><ul><li>oestrogen depletion result in instability in the vessels of the skin.
  18. 18. The hot flashes begins on the chest and spreads quickly over the neck, face and upper limbs which lasts only seconds but may recur many times one day. Sweat often follows hot flashes.</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  19. 19. 3) mood changes and sleep disturbances<br /><ul><li>insomnia, headache, backache, depression, hate,
  20. 20. having difficulty falling asleep and waking up soon after going to sleep</li></ul>4)urinary tract problem<br /><ul><li>atrophic change in the urethrovesical epithelium
  21. 21. decreased elastic tone of the uterine and urethrovesical supporting structures</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  22. 22. 5)vaginal dryness and genital tract atrophy<br />atropic vaginitis, dyspareunia<br /><ul><li>the vaginal skin become thin and loses its rugose appearance
  23. 23. small red spots appear on the vagina </li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  24. 24. 2. Late symptoms and problems<br />6)osteoporosis<br /><ul><li>Accelerated bone loss in women is clearly related to the loss of ovarian function.
  25. 25. Studies show that a rapid decrease in bone mass occures within 2 months of ovariotomy</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  26. 26. <ul><li>After natural cessation of ovarian function, bone loss 3% yearly for the first 6 years
  27. 27. By age 65, half of women have bone density decreased by 2 standard deviations below the perimenopausal mean.
  28. 28. Beyond age 45, the incidence of wrist fractures is 12 times higher in women than in men of same age</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  29. 29. <ul><li>There is now general agreement that postmenopausal osteoporosis is related to estrogen deficiency
  30. 30. Estrogen reduce bone resorption more than they reduce bone formation
  31. 31. Other factors</li></ul>lack of exercise<br /> Malabsorption of calcium<br />www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  32. 32. 7) cardiovascular lipid changes<br /><ul><li>atherosclerosis(动脉硬化)
  33. 33. HDL,LDL, total cholesterol ,
  34. 34. perimenopaual women have a lower incidence of coronary heart disease than men of same age.
  35. 35. This observation led to the supposition that estrogen might be a key factor.
  36. 36. But recent data suggest that Estrogen has no such protection against heart disease </li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  37. 37. Diagnosis<br />1)History <br /> menstrual abnormality<br />2)Symptoms: vasomotor symptoms, vaginal dryness, urinary frequency, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, skin change, breast changes, urinary tract problem, pelvic floor change( cystocele. Rectocele. Prolapse), skeletal change(backache, ) and so on.<br />www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  38. 38. 3)Physical examination: <br /> The clinical findings vary greatly depending on the time elapsed since menopause and the severity of the estrogen deficiency<br /><ul><li>Skin: thin ,dry
  39. 39. Breast loss turgor
  40. 40. The labia are small
  41. 41. The uterus becomes much smaller
  42. 42. The muscles of the pelvic floor are looser in tone and are thin
  43. 43. Prolapse may be present</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  44. 44. 4) Laboratory diagnosis<br /><ul><li>Cytologic smear from the vaginal wall
  45. 45. E2, FSH, LH determination
  46. 46. Radiography, X-ray densitometry</li></ul>www.freelivedoctor.com<br />
  47. 47. Treatment<br />1)   education, understanding, reassurance<br />2)   hormone replacement therapy(HRT)<br /><ul><li>Estrogen therapy

  52. 52. Contraindication<br /><ul><li>thrombo-embolish
  53. 53. hypertension
