Every woman is physiologically different and will also be at a different stage of menopause. This is why we individualise our approach on a person by person basis. We will recommend a starting point for your treatment based on your medical history as well as your current symptoms. We may use pathology testing of your hormones as a helpful diagnostic tool. We encourage your regular feedback so that we can understand how best to address your symptoms over time.
To this end, as part of your treatment program we make regular contact with you .Based on your feedback, relevant medical history and any investigation results, we will counsel you and if necessary, adjust your medication dosage to ensure that you gain the best symptom relief with the lowest required treatment dose. What Exactly Is Menopause? Simply put, menopause occurs when your ovaries stop producing hormones – especially the oestrogens.
When this happens, you start experiencing the classic symptoms of menopause such as Hot Flushes, Night Sweats, Vaginal Dryness, Irritability, Mood Swings, Headaches, Fatigue and Low libido. In some women Menopause can start in their mid 30’s. In other cases women can go through menopause in their late 40’s or even 50’s.
Our goal, as is yours, is to achieve relief from your symptoms of menopause. It has taken many years for your body’s hormone balance to eventually become unbalanced – it may take some time to get it back into balance.
