The number of women regularly having sex declines with age, and the number of women enjoying sex postmenopause is even lower. Although these facts are not surprising, the causes for these declines may be because previous research focused largely on biological causes only.

That's because numerous studies have confirmed the role of genetics in determining a woman's age at menopause.

Scleroderma is a connective tissue disease that hardens the skin and scars the organs. Older men with scleroderma had higher estrogen levels than healthy older men or postmenopausal women with scleroderma, report researchers. Higher estradiol levels were associated with more severe disease and heart involvement in these men and, in those positive for the autoantibody Scl-70, a greater risk of death.

Although hormone therapy (HT) is the most commonly recommended treatment for menopause symptoms, research is ongoing for alternatives, especially nonpharmacologic options.
