The menopause MOT is a specialist assessment for women approaching or those who have gone through the menopause.

The menopause is defined as the time when a woman no longer has her periods. A woman is defined as post menopausal when she has not had her period for 12 months or longer.

Menopausal symptoms can vary between individuals and can be quite subtle so it is not always easy to recognise that they could be happening due to the change in hormonal levels.


Some common symptoms are listed below:-

  • Hot flushes

  • Mood changes- irritable, emotional, angry, labile

  • Fatigue

  • Joint or muscle pains

  • Brain fog

  • Sleep disturbance

  • Weight gain

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Sexual difficulties

  • Change in bladder and or bowel symptoms
