The official definition for Menopause: is the time when a woman stops having her periods for at least a year and can no longer get pregnant naturally. For most women, the menopause can occur between 45 -55 years of age. As women age, their ovaries produce less oestrogen and testosterone as ovulation becomes less regular. The declining levels of oestrogen cause menopausal symptoms, which can occur a few years before and sometimes after the actual menopause.
For some women, the menopause may occur prematurely, i.e. before the age of 40 (due to premature ovarian insufficiency) or may be brought about by a life event, surgery or other treatment.
Every woman will go through the menopause at some stage in her life. For some, the menopause is an easy transition, but the time leading up to and after menopause can be problematic for most women.
The menopause can be a difficult time for both women and their partners/families. The uncomfortable range of physical and emotional symptoms experienced during this time can be surprisingly debilitating, causing distress and anxiety and putting pressure on relationships.
We offer personalised consultations for your perimenopause and menopause with specialists Dr Alex Standring and Professor Jay Chatterjee. We will review your medical history, blood pressure, BMI, and symptoms and advise on the best treatment options appropriate for you. You will always see the same specialist when you visit the clinic.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and non-hormonal treatment is available, based on your preference. Sometimes, your Dr may recommend a range of investigations, including Hormone profile blood tests or an Ultrasound scan.
Once the results of any additional investigations have been received, your specialist will talk through the benefits and risks associated with the recommended treatment.

It can be confusing to know if you are peri-menopausal (the time leading up to menopause when oestrogen levels are declining). Throughout the body, there are oestrogen receptors, and when oestrogen levels decline, the impact can be widespread.
It might be helpful to note down any symptoms you are experiencing or complete our menopause questionnaire:
Every woman going through menopause is different.
Some women are fortunate to have only mild symptoms and sail through menopause easily. Other women may have severe symptoms, and this can negatively affect their mental and physical health. The majority of women will incur some discomfort. Menopause can be difficult, but there are ways to minimise symptoms, and our specialist menopause clinicians are here to help you feel like yourself again.
Depending on your medical history and symptoms, your clinician may recommend following:
A combination of altered hormone levels due to various factors can lead to short term symptoms and long term health problems. These symptoms are explained in more detail below:
