Menopause

What is it important for women to note about menopause and their health?

In Health After Menopause the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health (JH) explain:

Women’s Health 40 – 64“At the same time as you are menopausal, there are many other areas of your health to keep an eye on. It is important to keep up cervical screening and, breast checks, and to watch your diet, blood pressure and cholesterol to ensure good cardiovascular health”.2

Checkups

What health checkups may women require?

In Women 40-60 the JH elaborate on:

“The complete range of medical checks and screening procedures required throughout life will vary for every person, depending on individual risks, medical background and family history. Talk to your doctor about what tests you require to maintain your health”.3

Health Care Provider

If I feel fine, do I still need to see my health care provider for regular checkups?

Even if you feel fine, it may be in your best interest to choose to see your health care provider for regular checkups.

In Health Screenings for Women Ages 40 To 64: Information the (United States) MedlinePlus elaborate on:

“Even if you feel fine, you should still see your provider for regular checkups. These visits can help you avoid problems in the future. For example, the only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked regularly. High blood sugar and high cholesterol levels also may not have any symptoms in the early stages. A simple blood test can check for these conditions”.4
