Reviewing your care

You may be having different treatments or therapies to help your menopausal symptoms. To see whether treatment is helping you should be offered review appointments every 3 months to start with. If you are not having any problems you should then have appointments once a year. You should be offered an earlier review if you need it, for example if treatment no longer seems to be working or is causing side effects.

It is also important to keep going to all your routine health screening appointments (for example, breast and cervical screening).

Being referred to a specialist

If treatments haven't helped your symptoms or have caused side effects you should be referred to a healthcare professional specialising in menopause. You may also be referred if there is uncertainty about the best treatment for you.
