Diagnosis of Menopause

There are telltale symptoms, such as changes in menstrual pattern and the onset of hot flashes, which offer diagnostic clues.

Menopause is suspected when there is a long interval without periods in a woman around the age of 50, particularly if a woman has hot flashes or a low estrogen profile. The low estrogen profile can be discovered during a physical examination by means of an atrophic vaginal smear, the absence of vaginal mucus, or an atrophic endometrium (diagnosed by a biopsy).
