Sex steroids and irritability associated with menopauseThere is a possible link between irritability and perimenopausal and postmenopausal women but there are not any study results or evidence suggesting an association.

A study examining association between menopause with sex steroids, gonadotrophins, prolactin and thyroid hormones and with samples including of 163 women, with a mean age of 55.1 years (SD = 5.7) in relation to 124 postmenopausal and 26 perimenopausal women, suggested that a high score is visible on inward and outward irritability scales in women with chronic disease.

Though not linked directly with menopause, it could have been partially influenced by the growing age of menopausal women.

The results of this study are seen by many as evidence that suggests a possible link between menopause and outward irritability.

Menopause linked with sex steroids and irritabilityThough there is a lack of evidence and studies on the relationship between menopause and irritability, irritability is one of the biggest complaints of perimenopausal and postmenopausal women.

According to a recent study that evaluated samples including of 163 women, with a mean age of 55.1 years (SD = 5.7) in relation to 124 postmenopausal and 26 perimenopausal women for finding a relationship between menopause with sex steroids, gonadotrophins, prolactin and thyroid hormones, it was revealed that women with chronic disease run a high score on inward and outward irritability scales. It was remarked that though this linkage is not specifically linked with menopause, it may be influenced to some extent by the growing age of menopausal women.

The results of this study are considered by many as good enough to suggest that there is a possible link between menopause and outward irritability.

Drugs like estrogen can prove effective for postmenopausal womenAccording to a recent study, women may experience a gain of weight of about 10-15 pounds in the years surrounding menopause. The findings of this study put to rest all doubts that arose before about whether weight gain is a side-effect of menopause.

It was revealed that ER_ receptor is the primary mediator behind the attenuating effects of estrogen on weight gain. It was also concluded that E2 and the ER_ selective drug minimize weight gain in rats without minimizing the intake of food.

Researchers at the Georgetown University consider that ER_-selective drugs can prove effective therapeutically for minimizing postmenopausal weight gain in women.
