Anxiety

Are you “feeling nervous, worried, uneasy, panicky, and fearful about what might happen”?

In Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety: Anxiety – What Is Anxiety? the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health elaborate on:

“Anxiety is part of being human. Everyone experiences it. We describe anxiety as feeling nervous, worried, uneasy, panicky, and fearful about what might happen. Anxiety can happen when we’re about to give a speech at a wedding or at work, while driving a car, going to meet with our child’s teacher, or looking down from the top of a skyscraper. It can also occur when we worry about climate change, whether our children will have jobs when they grow up, or if someone could hurt us or someone we love”.

Anxiety Disorders

Does your anxiety refuse to go away?

In Anxiety Disorders: Overview the (United States) National Institute of Mental Health explain:

Anxiety Snapshot

“Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships”.

Bioidentical Hormones Snapshot can be a place to start if you are searching for information about bioidentical hormones, pharmacy-compounded hormones or custom-mixed bioidentical hormone preparations.

Bioidentical Hormones SnapshotIn Menopause Management: Pharmacy-Compounded Hormones the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health explain:

“Pharmacy-compounded hormones (sometimes referred to as bioidentical hormones) are mixtures of hormones made in compounding pharmacies that are promoted as hormones ‘exactly like our own’ hormones. They can contain oestrogens, progesterone and sometimes other hormones such as testosterone.

The hormones are made into capsules, creams, gels, drops applied to the tongue, lozenges or troches (soft square-shaped tablets) sucked in the cheek”.

Bioidentical Hormones SnapshotIn Bioidentical Custom Compounded Hormone Therapy the Australasian Menopause Society elaborate on:

“It is important to realise that no hormone used in any preparation of pharmaceutical grade menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) or compounded “bioidentical therapy” is ‘natural’. They are all synthesised in the laboratory from some precursor by enzymatic manipulation”.

In Menopause FAQs: Hormone Therapy for menopause Symptoms – Bioidentical Hormones SnapshotQ. I’ve heard about something called bioidentical hormones. What are they? the North American Menopause Society’s (NAMS) elaborate on:

“A. …Bioidentical hormones do not have to be custom-compounded (meaning custom mixed). There are many well-tested, FDA-approved hormone therapy products that meet this definition and are commercially available from retail pharmacies in a variety of doses that will allow you and your doctor to customize your therapy to meet your needs”.

In Menopausal Symptoms: In Depth – What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms: Other Complementary Approaches – Bioidentical Hormones the (United States) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health note:

  • “It’s been claimed that custom-mixed bioidentical hormone preparations are more effective and safer than conventional hormone therapy, but scientific evidence to support this idea is lacking. Custom-mixed bioidentical hormones may actually be riskier than conventional treatment because less is known about their safety. Also, no regulatory agency oversees their preparation, and therefore their content may vary from batch to batch”.

Complementary and Integrative Health and Menopause Snapshot

“Many natural products have been studied for menopause symptoms. However, none has clearly been shown to be helpful. There’s little information on the long-term safety of natural products, and some can have harmful side effects or interact with drugs. The sections below give more detail about several natural products studied for menopause symptoms”.

In Menopausal Symptoms: In-Depth – What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms: Mind and Body Practices the NCCIH elaborate on:

“Only a small amount of research has been done on most mind and body practices for menopause symptoms. However, the limited evidence currently available suggests that some of these practices might help to relieve symptoms or make them less bothersome”.

In Complementary Medicine Options for Menopausal Symptoms: Main Points the Australasian Menopause Society caution:

  • Complementary and Integrative Health and Menopause Snapshot“Speak with your doctor before using complementary medicine because it might affect other medications

  • Bioidentical compounded hormone therapy cannot be recommended because their safety is unknown
  • No complementary medicine is as effective as oestrogen therapy for menopausal symptoms”.

Early Menopause Snapshot“‘Early menopause’ is when the final menstrual period occurs between 40 and 45 years”.

In Premature & Early Menopause: What Is Premature & Early Menopause? the JH’s definition of premature menopause is:

Early Menopause Snapshot“‘Premature menopause’ is when the final menstrual period occurs before a woman is 40”.

In Early or Premature Menopause: What Is the Difference Between Early and Premature Menopause? the Office on Women’s Health, United States Department of Health and Human Services, Womenshealth.gov elaborate on:

“Early or premature menopause happens when ovaries stop making hormones and periods stop at a younger age than usual (the average age for menopause in the United States is 52). This can happen naturally or for a medical reason, such as when both ovaries are removed in a hysterectomy.

Early and premature menopause can have the same causes. The only difference is the age at which it happens. Menopause that happens before age 45 is called early menopause. Menopause that happens before age 40 is called premature menopause.

Women who have gone through early or premature menopause cannot get pregnant”.
