Which questions should I ask doctor?
Even though I've had a period the past 2 months, I didn't have one for 4 months before that. I am way past the age of getting menopause (almost 56). My main concern is that I turn into a crazy person at times for no reason. Also, I get this feeling of dread and just feel very anxious.
What questions should I ask the gyn next week at my yearly appointment concerning hormones? I know nothing about hormone therapy and am afraid of it because of weight gain. Years ago, when I was bleeding very heavily, I was given hormone therapy and gained quite a bit of weight almost immediately.
Are there other questions I should ask at my appointment?
What tests should I expect her to give me, either blood tests or any others? Should she send me for a bone density test since osteoporosis runs in my family? Should I get a test that tells if I could be in menopause?
Thank you for any help with this. I want to be prepared when I go to my appointment.
