Not all medical professional have experience in looking after women who are experiencing menopause. Treatment can be quite difficult as it needs to be tailored to your needs. It is also important to address myths and anxiety about treatment so that you do not end up making the wrong choice.
Some general practitioners are very sympathetic and helpful in this situation. There a couple of things that might help you decide if you need to see a menopause specialist.
1- Did your doctor listen to your symptoms or just suggested a blood test to make a diagnosis?
2-Did you get help in formulating a general plan to take care of your health that goes beyond just helping you with your symptoms. This is very important as menopause will affect the rest of your life and your ageing process.
Consider these two points and you will be very clear in knowing if you need further help!
