What is STRAW+10?

In the International Experts Clarify Hormonal Changes of Menopause: New Report Will Help Clinicians Predict Onset of Menopause dated 16 February 2012, the International Menopause Society (IMS) elaborate on:

“Published simultaneously today in four top-tier journals, a new report provides a framework within which physicians and researchers can systematically and consistently identify the different reproductive stages women go though from adolescence to menopause and beyond. The report, named STRAW+10, will help clinicians predict when a woman will enter menopause and guide the selection of treatment options for menopausal symptoms and other related conditions”.2

The IMS also explain:

“STRAW+10 represents an update to the landmark STRAW (Stages of Reproductive Aging Workshop) system put into place ten years ago that paved the way for international studies that have led to a greater understanding of reproductive aging in women”.3
