WEDNESDAY, Jan. 30, 2019 (American Heart Association) -- New research has found that women who have a heart attack, stroke or some other type of cardiovascular event before age 35 have twice the risk of going into early menopause -- which could create its own set of health hazards.
Menopause is the process in which a woman permanently stops having menstrual cycles. In many women, it occurs around age 51.
TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 -- Women who are "mindful" in their everyday activities seem to suffer fewer menopause symptoms, new research suggests.
The study couldn't prove that it was the mindfulness that was keeping symptoms at bay, but it does add to evidence for a link, said lead researcher Dr. Richa Sood. She's a women's health specialist at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minn.
