Content and aim: The menopausal transition is the gradual change from pre- to postmenopause- menopause being defined retrospectively 12 months after the last menstrual period. This phase is characterized by significant hormonal, emotional and social challenges, such as hot flashes, mood and cognition changes, while empty nest syndrome, retirement or illness of a partner may coincide. As a result, sexual problems are common and multifaceted. In this webinar we will go through the complexities of the woman’s sexuality throughout mid-life; biological, psychological and social factors to be considered. Common symptoms and sexual difficulties will be presented, together with therapeutic options, both medical and non-medical, all based on the latest literature. Produced in 2019
