Menopause imageMenopause is a significant life event for women. In the past menopause was seen as the threshold of old age. Now, with increases in life expectancy, menopause can be seen as a new beginning for women.

Every woman’s experience of menopause will be different. Many women will experience some negative symptoms leading up to menopause, but a minority will suffer significant interference with their quality of life during this time.

What a lot of women don’t know is that menopause can also have a negative impact on women’s overall health. Women’s risks from heart disease, breast cancer and osteoporosis rise after the menopause. However, simple improvements in lifestyle at this time in a woman’s life can protect women from serious health problems later in life.

A simple health check for all women around the time of menopause can assess risk of developing these and other diseases and develop a personal health plan for the menopause and beyond.

Information and disease modifying steps will enable women to life happier, healthier and longer lives.

What’s involved

During a menopause check-up, our family planning doctor will take a full medical history. Other aspects of the consultation include:

  • Blood pressure
  • BMI
  • Blood test (full blood count, kidney function, liver function, blood sugar, cholesterol and lipids, hormone levels and thyroid)
  • Breast check
  • Smear history and smear test if indicated
  • Osteoporosis risk assessment and arrange DEXA scan if indicated
  • Lifestyle assessment and recommendations
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) assessment and prescription if required (depending on medical history)

In order to get accurate result for blood sugar and cholesterol women need to be fasting for 12-14 hours before appointment. Results will be delivered by post approximately two weeks after appointment.
