Male menopause and decision-making: a qualitative study.

22 October 2007 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to explore how a small group of white South African men going through menopause attached meaning to this major event in their lives, and also how it affected the decisions they took as leaders in the financial sector. In view of the fact that menopause is a natural process that, according to the existing literature, has a strong influence on men’s behaviour, the following research question was formulated: “Do behavioural changes due to menopause ultimately affect men’s social lives, and particularly their behaviour in the work environment where as leaders they take important decisions?” In collecting data I followed a field research approach where focused interviews were used involving asking questions, listening, expressing interest and recording what was said. Five participants were selected, including myself (I provided an autoethnographic narrative). Having opted for a particular application of the grounded theory approach (Strauss & Corbin, 1990) and in keeping within the requirements of modernist qualitative research, i.e., providing sufficient information to establish the study’s credibility, and at the same time giving the participants a voice, I conveyed the data, the findings of the study, and the inferences I made according to grounded theory’s three analytical steps namely, open coding, axial coding and selective coding. The findings indicated that menopause symptoms in particular (their physical, psychological and sexual dimensions) had a profound influence on the systemic male. The themes that I inferred from the data through continuous and systematic comparisons were related to decision-making in the work environment. This continuous comparative approach crystallised in the study’s emerging core theme, namely: “the decreased need for work power in the work environment due to psychological integration occurring during their menopause” as well as its substantive theory: “work power trade-offs result in decreased decision-making power during the male menopause phase”.

The efficacy of Sepia® in the management of climateric symptoms

Compere, Vicki 16 August 2012 (has links)
M.Tech. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the homoeopathic complex remedy, Sepia® from Natura (Pty) Ltd. in South Africa, in alleviating climacteric symptoms in climacteric women as compared with a placebo remedy. Volunteers were recruited using flyers and posters placed at the Technikon Witwatersrand Clinic, and at pharmacies and health shops within the central Johannesburg area. Newspaper advertisements were placed in local newspapers advertising free homoeopathic treatment for climacteric symptoms by taking part in a research project. A sample size of forty subjects was chosen according to the delimitations of the study. A signed consent form was compulsory for participation in the study. The study was a two group experimental design consisting of an experimental group, who were administered Sepia®, and a control group, who were administered a placebo preparation. The study was conducted in a double-blind manner. The subjects were given sufficient medication to last for the duration of the study and were given instructions on how and when to take the medication, and how to store it. The duration of the study was eight consecutive weeks (two consecutive months). At the end of the treatment period there were fifteen subjects in the treatment group, and fourteen subjects in the placebo group During the treatment period the participants were required to fill out a Climacteric Symptom Questionnaire on a weekly basis and a Hot Flush Score Sheet on a daily basis. All the daily Hot Flush Score Sheets and weekly Climacteric Symptom Questionnaires were completed by each participant. They were collected after the eight week treatment period and subjects ceased taking the medication

Métodos: Estudo populacional de corte transversal, com questionário anônimo auto-respondido por 378 mulheres brasileiras residentes em Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, entre 40 e 65 anos, com 11 anos ou mais de escolaridade, no período de maio a setembro de 2005. o instrumento de avaliação baseou-se no Short Personal Experiences Questionnaire (SPEQ). O escore de sexualidade foi calculado através da análise multivariada de sete componentes: presença de fantasias sexuais, grau de desejo, freqüência de atividade sexual, satisfação nas atividades sexuais, freqüência de excitação, orgasmo e a autoclassificação da vida sexual. Considerou-se escore de sexualidade abaixo da mediana como sexualidade ruim e maior ou igual à mediana como sexualidade boa. Para se investigar os fatores associados, os dados foram analisados usando-se a análise bivariada, com aplicação dos testes qui-quadrado e exato de Fisher. Por último, a análise por regressão múltipla de Poisson foi realizada. A razão de prevalência (RP) e o respectivo intervalo de confiança de 95% (IC 95%) foram calculados. Resultados: 276 questionários foram avaliados e, destes, 219 mulheres relataram ter parceiro sexual. A mediana do escore de sexualidade foi 9,0 (variação: 2,45-13,77). A análise de regressão múltipla mostrou que a prevalência de escore de sexualidade abaixo da mediana foi maior nas mulheres com mais idade e naquelas com insônia. Ter parceiro sexual e sentir-se bem indicaram efeito protetor contra baixo escore de sexualidade. Em mulheres com parceiro sexual, a prevalência de escore abaixo da mediana foi maior nas que moravam com o parceiro, que estavam na transição menopausal ou na pós menopausa e nas hipertensas. Ter relações sexuais com penetração e satisfação com o parceiro como amante indicaram efeito protetor contra escore de sexualidade abaixo da mediana. Conclusões: Mulheres com mais idade e que relataram insônia tiveram maior chance de ter sexualidade ruim, enquanto as com parceiro sexual e que se sentiram bem tiveram maior probabilidade de apresentar sexualidade boa. No grupo de mulheres que tinham parceiro sexual, a sexualidade foi negativamente associada ao fato de residir com o parceiro, estar na transição menopausal ou pós-menopausa e ser hipertensa. A satisfação com o parceiro como amante e ter relações sexuais com penetração diminuíram a probabilidade de apresentar sexualidade baixa Abstract: Objectives: To evaluate aspects of sexuality and associated factors in middle aged women with 11 or more years of formal education. Methods: with living in Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais), between 4, in the period between May and September 2005. The evaluation instrument was based on the Short Personal Experíences Questíonnaíre (SPEQ). Sexuality score was calculated from the multivariate analysis of the seven components: presence of sexual fantasies, intensity of desire, frequency of sexual activities, satisfaction in sexual activities, frequency of arousal, orgasm and self-classification of sexual life. The sexuality score below the median was considered bad sexuality and equal or higher than median as good sexuality. To investigate associated factors, data were analyzed using bivariate analysis and chi-squared and Fisher's exact tests were applied. Finally, Poisson multiple regression analysis was performed. The software used was Stata 7.0. Prevalence ratios (PR) and their 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were calculated. Results: 276 questionnaires were evaluated and from these 219 women reported having sexual partners. The median sexuality score was 9.0 (range: 2.45-13.77). Multiple regression analysis showed that the prevalence of below median scores was higher in older women and in those with insomnia. Having a sexual partner and feeling well was associated with a protective effect against a below median sexuality score. In women with sexual partner, the prevalence of below median scores was higher in women who lived with their sexual partner, were in the menopausal transition or postmenopausal and in hypertensive women. Sexual activities involving penetration and a score of 6 for satisfaction with partner as a lover were indicative of a protective effect against below median sexuality score. Conclusions: Older women and those with insomnia were more likely to have a bad sexuality, whereas the ones with a sexual partner and who felt well were more likely to have a good sexuality. In the group which had sexual partner, the sexuality of women in midlife was negatively associated with the fact of living with a sexual partner, being in the menopausal transition or postmenopausal and being hypertensive. Satisfaction with the sexual partner as a lover and having sexual activities with penetration decreased the chance of poor sexuality Doutorado Tocoginecologia Mestre em Tocoginecologia

Kvinnors upplevelser av klimakteriet : - en beskrivande litteraturstudie

Friberg, Caroline, Strandberg, Josefine 2014 (has links)
Syfte - Syftet med föreliggande litteraturstudie var att beskriva kvinnors upplevelser av klimakteriet samt granska litteraturens kvalitet avseende urval och bortfall. Metod - Litteraturstudie med beskrivande design. Artikelsökningen skedde i databaserna Cinahl, PubMed samt manuell sökning vilket resulterade i 11 vetenskapliga artiklar. Upplevelser av klimakteriet sammanställdes och granskning av artiklarnas urvalsmetod och presentation av bortfall har skett. Huvudresultat - Upplevelserna av klimakteriet varierar från individ till individ. Kvinnors symtom i samband med klimakteriet varierade både i intensitet och i förekomst, likaså hanterade kvinnorna klimakteriet på olika vis. Vissa kvinnor ansåg att klimakteriet påverkade det vardagliga livet, medan andra kvinnor upplevde att klimakteriefasen var en lättsam att passage. Slutsats - Klimakteriet är en naturlig process som infaller samtidigt som andra stora förändringar i livet, därför var det inte sällsynt att kvinnorna upplevde någon form av identitetskris. Under klimakterieperioden är det fördelaktigt för kvinnor att hitta strategier för att bemästra situationen. Ett återkommande tema i kvinnornas berättelser var att de saknade kunskaper om de förändringar som uppstår i samband med klimakteriet. De önskade mer uppmärksamhet ifrån den nära omgivningen och ett bättre stöd från hälso- och sjukvården. En stor andel medelålders kvinnor kommer på något sätt att komma i kontakt med vården vilket gör det angeläget att allmänsjuksköterskan har kunskaper om klimakteriet och de förändringar som det innebär för kvinnorna. Aim – The purpose of this study was to describe women's experiences of menopause and to highlight one methodological aspect. Method – A descriptive literature study. 11 articles on women's experiences of menopause are compiled in this study. A review of the sampling and presentation of eventual drop-outs has been occurred. The articles were found in PubMed and Cinahl and a manual search has also been done. Main results - The experiences of menopause varies among individuals. Women's symptoms associated with menopause varied both in intensity and in frequency. Women also dealt with the symptoms in different ways. Some felt that it affected their everyday life, while others experienced that the climacteric phase was easy to pass. Conclusion - Menopause is a natural process that usually coinciding with other changes in life, therefore it was not rare that women experienced some form of identity crisis. During the climacteric phase it is advantageous for women to apply their coping strategies. A recurring dilemma was the demand of increased knowledge related to women's stories. The women desired ambient responsiveness and better support from healthcare during menopause. A large proportion of middle-aged women will somehow be in contact with health services. This means that general nurses also will meet these women.

Kvinners Utløpsdato? : bilde og forståelsen av klimakteriet, kjønn og aldring i dagspressen og blant middelaldrende kvinner A female expiring date : images and understandings of menopause, gender and aging in media and among middle-aged women

Jønland Højsgaard, Trine Iren 2012 (has links)
Menopause is a period of biological transition in middle-aged women, when oestrogen levels gradually drop. After menopause women no longer can give birth to children. However, menopause is more than biology; it is also an example of a bio-psycho-social process, where psychosocial and cultural involvement can influence experiences of the biological transformation. Furthermore, many myths and meanings surrounds menopause, and the purpose of this study drawing on a Foucauldian perspective, is to examine discourses in contemporary society that affect the understanding of what menopause is. The methodological approach consists of an analysis of media articles and interviews with middleaged women to explore different conceptions of menopause. The analysis of articles in two leading Swedish newspapers during a period of five years (Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet, 2007- 2011) reveals that the media present menopause as a substantial risk factor that increases the possibilities of many diseases, irrespective of genes and lifestyle, and that menopause appears to cause reduced quality of life and degraded body. This female period of life is portrayed as “the beginning of the end”, filled with dichotomies concerning whether menopause is natural or pathological, but with an emphasis on the pathological. The newspaper articles present different strategies for women on how to deal with this transformation, such as hormone replacement therapy, fitness, and different diets that can "calm" women’s experience of menopause. Media thus present menopause as both problematic and challenging. However, interviews with six middle-aged women show that women themselves view this differently. Women define menopause as the border between being young and old, and this makes menopause in conflict with today's youth-obsessed society, where health and appearance are essential components of personal identity, particularly for women. Women talk about menopause as a confirmation of age, and also indirectly as the beginning of deteriorating health. In contrast, the majority of women experience menopause positive in terms of what they had expected. Due to the confusion surrounding menopause women call attention to the lack of information and knowledge on the subject of menopause. Information that can increase women’s knowledge, and thus give women more control over their own bodies. These different images of menopause are problematized both in terms of the gendered body, as well as in terms of knowledge and power.
