Research: Transdermal and oral hormone replacement therapy and the risk of stroke: Nested case-control study Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) skin patches containing low doses of oestrogen carry less risk of stroke than oral therapy and may represent a safer alternative to tablets, suggests a study published on bmj.com today. However, the risk increases significantly with high dose patches. HRT is regularly prescribed to women suffering from the effects of the menopause. However, most...

By Panay, Nicholas Pritsch, Maria; Alt, Jeannette Abstract Secondary amenorrhea in women with normal estrogen levels increases the risk of endometrial carcinoma. Cyclical dydrogesterone induces regular withdrawal bleeding and effectively protects the endometrium of postmenopausal women receiving estrogens. In order to assess the efficacy of dydrogesterone in inducing regular withdrawal bleeds in premenopausal women with secondary amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea and normal estrogen levels, a...

By Pelinescu-Onciul, Dimitrie Abstract The objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of progestogenic therapy for the prevention of spontaneous abortions in patients with subchorionic hemorrhage. One hundred pregnant women with bleeding and ultrasonographic evidence of subchorionic hematoma were treated with oral dydrogesterone 40 mg/day. Only cases in which the embryo was viable were included. The follow-up included ultrasonography and intravaginal examination. Of the 100...

By Patki, Ameet Pawar, Vijay C Abstract The aim of the present study was to evaluate dydrogesterone for luteal-phase support in assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and to compare it with micronized vaginal progesterone. All patients underwent long-term downregulation with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists. In phase I, 498 patients were divided into three groups: long protocol and not at risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) (group A); long protocol and at risk of OHSS...

By Seeger, Harald Mueck, Alfred O Abstract Estrogens exert beneficial effects on the vascular system, while progestogens generally have a negative impact (e.g. vasoconstrictor effects on the arterial system). In contrast, dydrogesterone appears to be largely neutral in terms of biochemical markers and indirect clinical endpoints, such as blood pressure, that act as surrogate markers for vascular function. Studies on lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, which can also influence vascular...

By Amy Norton NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Women who use over-the-counter progesterone creams could be exposed to hormone levels comparable to those used in a form of hormone replacement therapy, a small study suggests. The study compared one brand of progesterone cream with a prescription oral progesterone that, like the cream, is derived from plant sources and provides a hormone that is structurally identical to the natural progesterone in a woman's body. The prescription product,...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.

A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
