The menopause is the cessation of periods. From about the age of 40 a woman’s ovaries show signs of decreased activity and they produce less hormone (oestrogen). One consequence of this is the alteration in the pattern of the monthly periods until eventually they stop.
Although many women go through the menopause without any problems, many others experience distressing symptoms which result from the lack of oestrogen affecting the blood vessels, skin, bones or the genito-urinary system. These symptoms often start before periods have ceased. Broadly, there are three groups of women who may benefit from attending the Menopause Clinic:
The examination is conducted by the Consultant Gynaecologist who will prepare a written report containing the results of the tests and consultation with advice and recommendations for future well being.
This will be sent to you within ten working days.
We would recommend that a copy of the report is sent to your General Practitioner.
Appointments are made by contacting the Outpatient department on (020) 8337 6691.
