Ttle change in the prevalence of women reporting bothersome pains.CommentsAbout two thirds of the women in this selected group of women reported vasomotor symptoms and about half reported them being bothersome symptoms. There was a notable variation in the development over time in the prevalence of bothersome symptoms. The development over time was related both to the timing of entering the study,

Same. Some women had symptoms variably (i.e. having one or more measurements without symptoms and then again reporting symptoms). Younger women did not systematically have more bothersome symptoms than older women. Comparing the proportions of women with bothersome symptoms at various times to those in the crosssectional analysis of Table 2 reveals relatively similar percentages. For comparison, w

En 19?4.Our sample size was too small to analyze this in relation to background characteristics to explain the variation. The results of the longitudinal analysis (comparing the same women over time) and those of the cross-sectional analysis showed relatively similar results. Thus, we can interpret the cross-sectional data as generally summing up the experience of all women throughout the followup

Omen with bothersome symptoms first increased and then decreased. Conclusions: There was a notable variability in the development of disturbing vasomotor symptoms over time in a selected group of women aged 50?9. Population-based follow-up studies of untreated women would be useful to estimate the symptom burden. Keywords: Menopausal symptoms, Duration, Follow-up, EstoniaBackground A number of stu

At the studied menopausal symptoms were four times more common among those who initially expressed an interest than among those who were not interested at the time of asking [25]. Thus, at a population level, the prevalence of symptoms is much lower, but we know nothing of whether the disturbance and variability among those who have symptoms is the same as in our trial. For comparison, we studied
