Premenopausal Health Care
Menopause is defined as the absence of menstrual periods for 1 year. The average age of menopause is 51 years, but the normal range is 45 years to 55 years.
The years leading up to this point are called perimenopause. This term means "around menopause." This phase can last for up to 10 years. During perimenopause, shifts in hormone levels can affect ovulation and cause changes in the menstrual cycle. Although the menstrual period may become irregular during perimenopause, you should be alert for abnormal bleeding, which can signal a problem not related to perimenopause. Signs may include very heavy bleeding, bleeding that lasts longer than normal, bleeding that occurs more often than every 3 weeks, or bleeding that occurs after sex or between periods. To diagnose the cause of abnormal perimenopausal bleeding or bleeding after menopause, your health care provider will review your personal and family health history. You will have a physical exam. You also may have one or more of the following tests: Endometrial biopsy, Transvaginal ultrasound, Sonohysterography, Hysteroscopy, or Dilation and curettage (D&C).
