What are the symptoms of menopause?

1 in 4 who go through menopause will be symptom-free, while 1 in 4 will have severe symptoms that have an impact on their day-to-day lives. Common symptoms include irregular bleeding, hot flushes, disrupted sleep, and changes in hair growth among others.

Menopause diagnostics

Gynaecologists are often the first doctors that a woman consults when they are seeking help in managing menopause. For patients experiencing menopause or peri-menopause symptoms, the first step is to receive a consultation and set of diagnostic tests.

Our diagnostics package includes:

  • A consultation with a leading menopause consultant and diagnostic blood tests

  • Ultrasound to analyse follicle counts and ovarian volume

  • Following these tests, your results are analysed and your consultant will contact you to discuss results, treatment or any other management strategies. This may involve referral to another specialty should you require further investigations.

Price for Menopause Diagnostics Pathway: £950

Alternatively, if you would prefer to receive just a consultation with one of our women’s health consultants we can also offer this. We see patients at all stages of their menopause journey, so consultations are also available to discuss the management of menopause if a diagnosis has already been made.

Which menopause related conditions do we diagnose and treat at OneWelbeck?

Whilst a consultation with a gynaecologist is generally the first step for seeking help with the menopause, another specialist may be more appropriate for certain symptoms. At OneWelbeck, we have an array of specialties within the same building to ensure a seamless and coordinated journey. We offers range of diagnostic tests and treatment for menopause related conditions including:

Osteoporosis: A condition that causes the bones to become brittle and weak, making them more fragile and susceptible to breaks. OneWelbeck can test bone density using DEXA scans.

Sleep disturbance: Night sweats, hot flashes, and changes in sleep patterns can often result in difficulties falling asleep, staying asleep, and experiencing restorative rest. Our sleep centre can assess, diagnose and treat a range of disturbances.

Urinary incontinence: Hormonal shifts that occur can weaken the pelvic floor muscles, leading to problems with bladder control. Women may experience stress incontinence (leakage during activities like sneezing or exercising), urge incontinence (sudden and strong urges to urinate), or a combination of both. We have specialists across the building that can assess and treat these issues including pelvic floor therapy and in some cases, surgery.

Cardiovascular diseases: Oestrogen has beneficial effects on cholesterol, triglycerides and helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure, however menopause can impact cardiovascular health due to decreasing levels of the hormone. Palpitations or rapid heartbeat can also be a common symptom of menopause. At OneWelbeck Heart Health, we can assess patients’ overall cardiovascular health including any risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and exclude any significant palpitations with simple non-invasive diagnostic testing.

Skin problems and hair loss: Numerous dermatological problems can be caused or exaggerated by menopause. These include dry skin, thinning skin with greater susceptibility to bruising, wrinkles/fine lines, acne, skin sensitivity (causing redness & itching), allergies /reactions to skincare products, and pigmentation changes. It can also cause thinning of the hair and changes in texture. Our dermatologists can assess these problems and advise on the best treatment and management for your needs.

Diabetes and thyroid function: Menopause is associated with metabolic changes, including a decline in insulin sensitivity and an increase in visceral (body organ) fat. This can increase the risk of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. Thyroid function can also be impacted which can contribute to symptoms such as fatigue, weight changes, and mood disturbances. Our team of endocrinology specialists can diagnose and assess any symptoms and provide a management plan.
