123342 - Time to retell the menopause story (Clinical Brief Series of 4)

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

Many women experience other menopausal symptoms such as mood changes, depression and anxiety. A 2017 study of 2,020 Australian women aged 40 to 65 demonstrated that moderate-to-severe VMS are independently associated with moderate-to-severe depressive symptoms. Unlike episodes of major depression, perimenopausal depression usually presents with symptoms of irritability, hostility or agitation and anxiety. Clinically, it is similar to the mood changes associated with premenstrual syndrome, with negative mood, negative self-concept and poor coping mechanisms.
