English-speaking gynecologists specialized in personalized menopausal care
Officially a woman has gone through menopause once she goes an entire year without having a period. Perimenopause is the variable period of time leading up to the stopping of a woman’s menses. Perimenopause usually lasts between 2-7 years and is different for every woman.
Typical symptoms women experience during menopause include:
- hot flashes
- irregular menses
- vaginal dryness
- sleep disturbances
- joint pain
- mood swings
Some of peri-menopausal-specific exams our gynecologists may recommend are:
- mammograms and breast ultrasounds
- pelvic ultrasound
- bone densitometry (a special kind of test evaluating how strong and thick your bones are)
Preventive medicine blood tests evaluating your risk for high cholesterol and heart disease, low iron, bone thinning or osteoporosis, thyroid abnormalities and vitamin and nutrient deficiencies such as Vitamin D.
English-speaking gynecologists in Barcelona : FAQ
We know that many women are nervous before their gynecological exam and it is our goal to try to make you as comfortable as possible. We will tell you ahead of your visit what will happen so there are no surprises.
In general, our gynecologist will examine the outside of your vagina (called the perineum) and then your internal genital organs using a tool called a speculum. During this internal exam of your vagina, the gynecologist will be looking to make sure that your vagina, vaginal discharge, and cervix (the mouth of the uterus) all look healthy.
Next the gynecologist will insert two fingers inside of your vagina and press on your belly with their other hand to feel the size and shape of your uterus and ovaries. The gynecologist will also examine your breasts for any lumps, bumps, or concerning changes.
In a younger or non-sexually-active patients, these internal examinations may not be performed. Pap smears for cervical cancer screening are performed only after age 25.
Given how common sexually-transmitted disease (STD) are and that some do not cause any noticeable symptoms, our gynecologists recommend frequent STI screenings for any sexually-active patients with a change in partner, symptoms, or other risk factors.
We can screen you for:
- Human Papilloma Virus
- Hepatitis B and C
Other non-sexually-transmitted infections we can screen for and treat include:
- Vaginal yeast and bacterial infections
- Urinary tract infections
It is helpful if you can provide any past gynecological medical history or records before your visit, especially prior mammogram, blood tests, STI screenings, or pap smears.
