Menopause is a natural biological process in which women's reproductive health shifts and their hormones begin to change. Experiencing menopause can be confusing and complicated, but getting the right kind of treatment and care from a menopause specialist can make the transition easier.
In general, doctor referrals are made when treatments or evaluations require specialized knowledge that your primary healthcare provider may not have. A referral to a menopause specialist is an excellent idea if you’re having difficulty managing symptoms associated with this change of life, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances and irregular periods.
When should you consider seeing a Menopause specialist?
If you’ve been diagnosed with menopause (or peri-menopausal) symptoms and lifestyle changes (such as exercising regularly, reducing stress levels and making dietary adjustments) aren’t improving your condition then it may be time to consult with a menopause specialist for further evaluation.
You may also benefit from consulting with a menopause specialist if you:
Are considering taking hormone replacement therapy
Would like to learn more about alternative therapies for treating hot flashes or other symptoms
Experiencing signs of menopause does not always mean that hormone replacements will be required – however it’s important to discuss this option with your primary care physician or contact a specialist who can provide more information regarding the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy. It’s worth noting that while hormone replacements do have some benefits they can also carry risks so it’s important to go through your options thoroughly before making any decisions.
