Female Menopause

Home > Health Check Ups > Female Menopause

Menopause is a natural biological process marking the end of a woman's reproductive years. It usually occurs in midlife, typically around the age of 45 to 55, although the exact timing can vary. During menopause, a woman's ovaries gradually produce fewer reproductive hormones, such as oestrogen and progesterone, leading to the end of menstrual periods and the end of fertility. This transition can bring about various physical and emotional changes due to hormonal fluctuations, including symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and changes in weight gain (caused by a slowing of the metabolism).

If you think you may be experiencing menopausal symptoms, why not book a check-up with one of our qualified women’s health GPs or Gynaecologists?

Our Menopause Health Check

Our women’s health checks are thorough and can help you understand the changes you are experiencing in your body. These check-ups include:

  • A 1-hour long appointment with a specialist Menopause GP to understand your symptoms and take a detailed medical and gynaecological history. 
  • Blood tests to diagnose perimenopause/menopause
  • Arrange other tests such as ultrasound scans and bone density scans
  • Prescribing HRT
  • Prescribing medication to prevent the further thinning and weakening of bones (osteoporosis)
  • Discussing lifestyle measures to help you get through the menopause.
  • Medical history and lifestyle assessment
  • Height, weight and BMI check
  • Urine analysis, diabetes risk, anaemia risk and cardiovascular disease risk
  • Thorough blood analysis to look at thyroid risk
  • Detailed look at liver disease risk, kidney disease risk and cholesterol risk

Your friendly Midland Health GP will help to plan your way through menopause, offering tailored advice and guidance for reducing uncomfortable symptoms and maintaining overall health and well-being.

It's also a chance for you to address any worries or concerns you may have. Our GPs excel at attentive listening and can provide you with appropriate medical guidance to enhance your quality of life.
