Female reproductive factors are associated with objectively measured physical activity in middle-aged women
TLDR
It is found that a large portion of Finnish middle-aged women did not meet the physical activity recommendations of 150 minutes of MVPA10 per week, and the condition of the pelvic floor should be taken into account when identifying the proper activity type and intensity level so that health benefits of physical activity can still be attained without worsening symptoms.
Racial differences in body composition and cardiometabolic risk during the menopause transition: a prospective, observational cohort study.
TLDR
White women gained more abdominal adiposity during the menopause transition compared to Black women, which may be due in part to differences in the pattern of sex steroid hormone changes between women of different racial backgrounds.
