Welcome to the MenopauseTracker.com website – one of the very few useful online services, offering comprehensive tracking for your personal journey through menopause.
Menopause Tracker provides free online tools to track:
ü medical examinations and tests
ü menopause symptoms
ü daily intake of vitamins, supplements as well as prescription drugs
ü plus a daily journal.
You will also be able to set email alerts to remind you of important events through the Web Site.
It might not be something you want to think about but many unplanned pregnancies occur in the perimenopausal demographic. So we all need to remember that, regardless of what society's view of older women is, motherhood is still an option. It's up to you what do about it.
The services give you the tools to track your period and ovulation. You also get certain abilities to track your sexual activity. So make a baby, don't make a baby. The tracker will help either way.
The tracker also provides the ability to keep a record and get reminded on very important breast self-exams.
You are able to record test results including your medical exams, hormone tests and STD tests for those back out there on the dating scene.
If you are using the Alerts options, you can get reminded when your period and ovulation is expected and when your next annual Mammogram and Pap Smear are due.
Your daily log always tells you the last date for all tests so you can use the calendar to go back to that date and check results.
Plus, the Summary Doctor Report gives you a brief overview of all those details to take with you so you can easily answer questions like "When was your last period?".
You can input the records on the dates and the results of numerous tests including:
ü Breast Examinations
ü Pelvic Examinations
ü Pap Smears
ü Hormone Tests including FSH, Estrogen, Progesterone, Estrogen/Progesterone Ratios, Testosterone, DHEA and Cortisol
ü STD Tests such as AIDS and HIV
It is recommended that test results be recorded in the comments tab on the day of the test.
Weight and Fitness
Being fit for menopause is your number #1 health priority. Not only do you need to reduce your BMI to ward off diabetes and issues related to excess estrogen such as Hot Flashes, you need to increase your strength to protect and strengthen your bones.
The tools track your weight, BMI and BMR as well as track the time spent devoted to exercise focusing on flexibility, strength and cardio. If you are calorie counting you can track that too.
You are able to set weight goals giving realistic feedback on time frames and calorific intake.
And if you subscribe to the Alerts, you will be reminded when you are overdue on entering your exercise, weight or body measurements.
There are listed about 50 possible symptoms, which may be relating to menopause. You can tick as many as apply in you in the daily logs. Many are not daily occurrences e.g. dry skin and you need not record it every day if you do not wish to. However, many come and go and so you can note these things to see if there is a pattern is linked to your cycle.
There is included list of all useful Vitamins and most Minerals, as well as recognized Supplements, for Menopause. You may record and track, if you are using Prescription (Rx) hormones replacement therapy in various combinations as well as three other unnamed Rx options. When you mark an Rx option you can note what it stands for in your comments.
You can keep a daily journal to record details of your Symptoms, comments about your Supplements/Prescriptions, Test Results or major events in your life.
You can also record additional readings such as Cholesterol and Bone Density (although we hope to add these to the main tests soon).
What your write is up to you. Only you see it.
You don't have to buy anything to use the offered tools. They are totally free. But you do need to create an account to use them.
