Menopause

Menopause

We use a holistic approach to promoting well-being during the challenging perimenopausal and menopausal period.  We focus on empowering a woman to maintain and improve her quality of life, with a tailored plan which includes options for both conservative and medical management.

Several of our doctors have particular experience and expertise in the management of menopausal symptoms.

The time of menopause commonly coincides with other life challenges – children leaving the nest, elderly parents and physical ailments, along with the psychological challenges of mid life. Our doctors and nurse practitioner can help advise on how to stay well and remain positive through this time. The importance of nutrition, and the pros and cons of HRT can be discussed in detail.

Pelvic floor symptoms such as urinary incontinence and prolapse can be distressing and embarrassing.  Feel confident to discuss these problems with your doctor. 

 

Menopause after Cancer 

Some of our practitioners have worked in the specialist clinic at King Edward Memorial Hospital.

Where traditional hormonal replacement therapy is contra-indicated, there are novel treatments available to assist women in managing symptoms of menopause.

Specialised counselling is recommended for those adjusting to changes in body image, and possible loss of fertility related to chemotherapy.
