Menopause and Perimenopause

A menopause or perimenopausal evaluation is usually undertaken in response to symptoms a patient is experiencing.

Common issues we deal with in menopausal and perimenopausal women are:

  • Abnormal periods (irregular, excessive etc)
  • Postmenopausal Bleeding
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood Swings
  • Night Sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Vaginal dryness

The evaluation can include several tests:

  • Blood test(s) for female hormones
  • Thyroid evaluation
  • Uterine biopsy
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Bone Mineral Density

Treatment is based on severity of symptoms and outcome of the physical exam, labs and/or ultrasound.

SSWC providers will discuss if any treatment is recommended, including non-prescription or prescription medication options and surgery.
