The menopause happens when a woman’s menstruation cycle reduces and stops.
Sometimes called ‘the change’ you may find you view menopause with mixed feelings as you recognise a different stage in your life. Menopause usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55.
Premature menopause can occur due to chromosomal disorders, autoimmune disorders, following a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus and/or ovaries) or following cancer treatment (chemotherapy or radiotherapy).
Hormonal changes cause you to stop having periods. The amount of the hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) your ovaries produce at this time drops significantly.
Common issues during the menopause
In the run-up to the menopause, your periods become very erratic and sometimes heavy. Your periods will usually not stop suddenly but become less frequent and then stop gradually. The menopause sometimes aggravates osteoporosis – bone mass is lost because of the reduced levels of some hormones.
Menopausal women often experience:
- Hot flushes
- Night sweats and sleeplessness
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary tract infection
- Headache and joint pain
- Reduced sex drive
How we can help you get through the menopause
We offer treatment to make the menopause easier. HRT (hormone replacement therapy) replaces your lost hormones to counteract the effects of the menopause. Your consultant can recommend the right type of HRT that’s right for you.
The most common way to have HRT is by a daily tablet, but there are other ways:
- A skin patch applied to the skin
- A small pellet or implant under the skin
- Gel medication applied to the skin
Benefits of HRT:
- Relief from hot flushes and night sweats
- Maintenance of muscles tone, helping reduce any incontinence problems
- Reduced mood swings
- Help with sleep disturbances
- Effective treatment for vaginal dryness
- Help for hormonal related mood swings
- Reduced risk of osteoporosis
It is important that you are aware of all the options available to you and that you decide what is best for you, as not all treatments suit everyone.
A minimum of 72 hours is required to reschedule, 7 days to cancel an appointment. Please see our T’s & C’s for full details.
