188407 - Menstrual disorders MCQs

  • : Online

This activity incorporates 15 multiple choice questions in the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) style with extensive feedback provided to help GPs assess their knowledge and further develop their understanding of menstrual disorders across different life stages. Questions cover a range of presentations and ask about the likely diagnoses as well as appropriate investigations and management strategies for the different cases.

Relevance to General Practice

Heavy menstrual bleeding affects approximately 25% of women of reproductive age; and approximately 12% of GP encounters with female patients include obstetric and gynaecological problems. These obstetric and gynaecological problems differ considerably by patient age, but can have an impact on the woman’s physical, social, emotional and material quality of life.

Identifying the cause and most appropriate treatment for menstrual disorders (bleeding but also other problems such as pain) is therefore vital for GPs in their care for these patients. While investigations exist for some menstrual disorders, they don’t for others, so this can be a challenge for GPs. The range of management options for menstrual disorders is also diverse. GPs therefore also need to be able to provide patients with balanced information on these treatment options and help them to access the care they need and want.
