The object of this special issue is to enhance how you respond to and manage patients' menopausal and sexuality symptom concerns. The articles aim to alert women's health professionals to:

  • the effects of sexual dysfunction, genitourinary syndrome of menopause in particular, on women emotionally and physically, and the available treatment options
  • current nonhormonal treatment for hot flashes
  • latest data on SERMs' role in managing menopausal symptoms, considering matching patients' symptoms to agents
  • recommendations for intimacy counseling.
