The purpose of this symposium is to present longitudinal findings from studies that are part of the Seattle Midlife Women's Health Study (SMWHS). Each of the three studies used cross-correlation analyses to test for changes over time across the menopausal transition (MT).
The SMWHS is a longitudinal study of midlife women that began in 1990 and continues until the present. The aim of this long-term project is to characterize the natural history of the MT. This is being accomplished in part by focusing on the progression through stages of MT and PM of symptoms, stress and hormonal changes. During this symposium a brief overview of the SMWHS will be presented by Dr. Mitchell to provide a background for the subsequent three papers. A brief overview of the method of time series analysis used in each study also will be presented. The first paper will examine the relationship between heaviness of menstrual bleeding and hormones across MT. Dr. Nancy Woods, in the second paper, will present findings about the relationship between hot flashes, sleep disruption symptoms and emotional distress symptoms and hormones across MT and early postmenopause (PM). The third paper presented by Ms. Kathleen Smith-DiJulio will focus on the relationship between libido and energy level and testosterone across MT and PM. Funding Sources: NINR R01-NR04141; NINR P30 NR04001.
