Description:
Elaine H is a 46-year-old woman who attends you, the practice nurse, for a routine smear. During the consultation she becomes tearful and you explore her reaction. She mentions that she is at the end of her rope with what she thinks are menopause symptoms. She has been getting frequent flushes and sweating for over a year. These symptoms have been particularly severe at night and she has been exhausted from the broken sleep. Her mood is low and she has a variety of other irritating symptoms including loss of sex drive, forgetfulness and a worsening of the occasional urinary incontinence she has had ever since having her children. Her periods are still regular although she bleeds every 22 to 23 days now instead of her usual 28 to 30 days.
