This month celebrates 25 years of NAMS – The North American Menopause Society. To celebrate, they have published a ‘Special Feature’ in the The Journal of The North American Menopause Society, which could help change the way that physicians and health care professionals treat menopause, for the better.
The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), one of the largest internationally recognized professional communities addressing health issues during Menopause, has published a comprehensive study on Menopause and it’s symptoms, officially stating that menopause is a physiological health issue, and detailing all the areas where menopause can affect the average menopausal female.
This is fantastic news for menopausal women everywhere and a great step forward in finding specific and effective ways to treat the changes that Menopause brings. The paper is based on an earlier book published by NAMS in 2000, and is publicly available on the NAMS website for all to read.
Just some of the changes talked about in the study include: skin care, hair care, mood swings, increased risk of osteoporosis, and sleep disturbance – just to name a few!
The paper, which has been published in The Journal of The North American Menopause Society, will now be used as an official guide for medical and healthcare professionals everywhere for clinical recommendations to the care of their menopausal patients – a huge break through for Menopause and women everywhere.
The paper was published to celebrate 25th anniversary of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) and we expect to see great things from the healthcare and medical community following the publication of this insightful feature.

Doctors in Japan and the US have made a breakthrough discovery that it is possible to conceive AFTER menopause. One baby has been born using this procedure and another is said to be on its way.
The doctors have made it possible for women to have children, after they have already experienced a natural menopause. The procedure is said to be “a technique to ‘reawaken’ the ovaries” in women who have experience early menopause due to having insufficient ovary functionality or “running out of eggs”.
This fascinating new technology could be a “game-changer” in the future of medical innovations and has the potential to bring motherhood to hundreds of women who have been unable to have children previously.
