    Racial differences in sex hormone levels in women approaching the transition to menopause

    Fert. & Ster. Vol.75(2), Feb. 2001, pg. 297-304



    There are racial differences in associations of hormone levels with age and BMI in late reproductive age women. Further study is needed to replicate these findings and to determine the relationships of these hormonal associations with menopausal symptoms.



    The events associated with ovarian aging in the late reproductive years when women are approaching the transition to menopause but still have regular menstrual cycles are not well understood. In this sample of women between 35 to 47 years of age, increasing age was independently associated with decreases in estradiol levels in African Americans but not Caucasians, even after controlling for a number of covariates. The basis for this racial difference is not understood, and has not previously been documented.
