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

Medicina tradicional chinesa: acupuntura e tratamento da síndrome climatérica Traditional chinese medicine: acupuncture and climateric syndrome treatment

Alexandre Castelo Branco de Luca 24 November 2008 (has links)
O objetivo do estudo foi avaliar em mulheres com sintomas menopáusicos, os efeitos da acupuntura ou da eletroacupuntura-placebo no Índice Menopausal de Kupperman (IMK) e na intensidade de fogachos e secundariamente avaliar se a ordem de execução desses tratamentos interfere nos resultados dessas medidas e se há alteração nos parâmetros laboratoriais. Foi realizado estudo prospectivo randomizado com 122 pacientes divididas em: Grupo 1 Acupuntura com 88 pacientes (período de um ano 10 sessões semanais e quinzenalmente até completar um ano, seguida de 6 meses de eletroacupuntura-placebo) e Grupo 2 Eletroacupuntura-placebo com 34 pacientes (6 meses 10 sessões semanais e quinzenalmente até completar 6 meses, seguida de um ano de acupuntura). Resultado: As pacientes tratadas com acupuntura e eletroacupuntura-placebo tiveram alívio das ondas de calor em 86,8% e 90,4% respectivamente, entretanto quando realizado quinzenalmente houve aumento das ondas de calor no Grupo 2. As pacientes tratadas com acupuntura apresentaram redução acentuada do IMK de 93,7% em relação ao Grupo 2 de 15,1%. O grupo que inicia com eletroacupunturaplacebo possui redução média na glicemia de 8,8%. Os valores médios de hemoglobina, triglicérides e HDL das pacientes aumentaram durante o estudo independente do grupo em 2,4%, 13,2% e 4,2%, respectivamente, enquanto os níveis de colesterol não modificaram. Nas pacientes tratadas com acupuntura observou-se redução do LDL em 9,1%, aumento do VLDL em 10,5% e redução do número de plaquetas em 5,0%. Houve redução significante do conteúdo mineral ósseo da coluna e do colo do fêmur em ambos os grupos em 1,4%. Conclusão: O uso da acupuntura para o alívio dos sintomas das pacientes climatéricas foi eficaz, sem apresentar efeitos colaterais. This study aimed at evaluating the effects of acupuncture and placebo electroacupuncture on the Kupperman Menopausal Index (KMI) and on the intensity of hot flashes in women with menopausal symptoms. A secondary objective was to check whether the order in which these two treatments were carried out interfered in the measurement results and laboratory tests. A prospective randomized study was conducted with 122 patients assigned to two groups: Group 1: Acupuncture on 88 patients (one session a week for ten weeks and then one session every other week throughout one year followed by six months of placebo electroacupuncture) and Group 2: Placebo electroacupuncture on 34 patients (one session a week for ten weeks and then one session every other week throughout six months followed by one year of acupuncture). Results: : Hot flashes decreased by 86.8% and 90.4% in Group 1 and Group 2, respectively, during the one-year acupuncture treatments, but they increased in Group 2 during the biweekly placebo electroacupuncture treatment. In the acupuncture phase, the KMI had a 93.7% drop in Group 1 in sharp contrast with the 15.1% decline in Group 2. The glucose decreased 8,8% in group 2. The hemoglobin, triglycerides and HDL increased during this study in 2,4%, 13,2% and 4,2%, respectively, in group 1. The leucocytes and total cholesterol dont change during this study. The LDL decreased 9,1%, VLDL increased 10,5% and platelet decreased 5% in group 1. The mineral bone in lumbar spine L1-L4 and neck of femur decreased 1,4% in both groups. Conclusions: The use of alternative therapy such as acupuncture for menopause symptoms is beneficial and relief almost all symptoms without any side effects.

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.
