1. When does menopause usually start?
The average age that women in the United States go through menopause is 51, but it’s different for everyone. Officially, menopause happens 12 months after your last period.
2. How should I prepare for my appointment?
Keep track of your symptoms. You may want to write down what you’re experiencing and how often. Bring a list of any medications and supplements you’re currently taking, and be ready to ask all your questions.
3. Will I need tests?
Often, menopause can be diagnosed without the need for testing, but occasionally tests are needed to rule out other causes for your symptoms. We can perform lab work and many other tests at our Harrisonburg office.
