What is menopause?

Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It is diagnosed after you have gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause can happen in your 40s or 50s, but the average age in the UK is 51. Menopause is a natural biological process but the low hormone levels can raise your risk for certain health problems.

Can you test for menopause?

Yes, a blood test can be done to test your follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) level to see if you are near menopause. FSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland. Your FSH levels can fluctuate during perimenopause and rise dramatically as your ovaries begin to shut down at menopause. The only reliable way to know you are definitely postmenopausal is when you have had no period for a year.

Do you need to see your doctor?

Getting regular check-ups and preventive screening tests such as pelvic exams, Pap smears, breast exams, and mammograms are among the most important things you can do for yourself. How often you need a check-up depends on your health history. Talk to our doctors to determine how often you should be seen. If you have any complex medical problems, such as a history of thrombosis, hormonal cancer such as breast cancer or family history of thrombosis it may be best to be seen by one of the consultants; otherwise you could see any one of our GP’s (see list below).
