Menopause Health Record Software

Women going through menopause should keep health records to effectively manage this transitional phase and track various aspects of their health. Menopause can bring about a range of symptoms, including hot flashes, mood swings, sleep disturbances, and changes in menstrual patterns. Keeping a health journal can help women identify triggers for these symptoms, such as certain foods, stress levels, or lifestyle habits.

Measuring and recording vital signs like blood pressure, weight, and bone density can assist in monitoring overall health and identify any potential health risks associated with menopause. Lab tests for hormone levels and bone density scans are also essential to track changes during menopause. By documenting medications and treatments, women can ensure proper adherence and evaluate their effectiveness. Additionally, noting doctor visits and discussions with healthcare providers can aid in better communication and personalized care.

Sample health journal entries that can be entered into Goopatient*:
Date: July 28, 2023
I'll continue to monitor my hot flashes and try to avoid triggers like #caffeine drinks before bedtime. My MHT seems to be helping with the mood swings, but I will discuss it further with my gynecologist during the upcoming appointment.
Woke up with a mild #hot_flash during the night. Experienced a few mood swings during the day, but overall feeling better in the evening.
I noticed that the hot flash might have been triggered by drinking #coffee before bedtime last night.
Today, I took my prescribed menopausal hormone therapy #MHT medication in the morning.
Checked my #blood_pressure in the morning, and the reading was 120/80 mmHg. Weight remains stable at 145 lbs.
The next appointment with my gynecologist #Dr.Brown is set for August 10th to discuss the bone density scan results.
