World Menopause Day 2018What is World Menopause Day?

The International Menopause Society (IMS) explain:

“The International Menopause Society, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, has designated October 18 as World Menopause Day. In observation of the Day, the IMS and the member national societies of CAMS, the Council of Affiliated Menopause Societies, distribute materials and organize activities to inform women about menopause, its management and the impact of estrogen loss”.2

World Menopause Month

What is World Menopause Month?

The IMS note:

“Since it is not always possible for local societies to arrange activities for this specific day, the IMS has now designated October as World Menopause Month. Local societies can also collaborate with other organizations working in the field of adult women’s health, such as societies for osteoporosis and breast cancer, to organize joint events. World Menopause Month can also be a call to implement policies that support research and treatment in the area of menopausal health”.3

World Menopause Day 2018

What is the World Menopause Day 2018 awareness campaign?

In World Menopause Day: World Menopause Day 2018 the IMS elaborate on:

“World Menopause Day is held each year on the 18th October to raise awareness of midlife women’s health. The 2018 awareness campaign concentrates on Sexual wellbeing after menopause. Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being related to sexuality. After menopause it is not uncommon for women to experience sexual problems which can severely impair their relationships, mental health, social functioning and overall quality of life. This campaign aims to show that it is treatable”.4

Patient Information Leaflet

What is the patient information leaflet Sexual Wellbeing After Menopause?

In World Menopause Day: World Menopause Day 2018 – Patient Information Leaflet: Sexual Wellbeing After Menopause the IMS explain:

“The patient information leaflet is a guide to help women in mid life find their way through any sexual problems which can severely impair their relationships, mental health, social functioning and overall quality of life”.5

On page two in their Patient Information Leaflet Sexual Wellbeing After Menopause the IMS note:

World Menopause Day 2018“The most commonly reported sexual problems experienced by women after menopause relate to sexual desire and interest, pleasure and overall satisfaction. Vaginal dryness and discomfort with intercourse are also common problems. Sometimes loss of libido and arousal is simply explained by the hormonal changes. But at midlife, as at any life phase, other factors such as poor self-image, family responsibilities, less opportunity for privacy, and partner health affect sexual wellbeing”.6

White Paper

What is the IMS’s Sexual Well-Being After Menopause: An International Menopause Society White Paper?

In World Menopause Day: World Menopause Day 2018 – Sexual Well-Being After Menopause: An International Menopause Society White Paper the IMS explain:

“Sexual well-being frequently declines following the menopause transition and can be associated with significant personal and relationship distress. This distress is the hallmark of female sexual dysfunction (FSD). The International Menopause Society is working to increase awareness of FSD and to provide a framework for practitioners to address sexual medicine concerns. This White Paper aims to review the process of care for female sexual well-being following menopause, from initially approaching the discussion of FSD, to identifying clinical signs and symptoms, and ultimately determining the best available biopsychosocial therapies”.7
