The Menopause and Beyond
At the Guildford Private General Practice we are experienced in caring for women in the menopause. Whether you are sailing through or struggling, we understand the issues and dilemmas and can help you make the right decisions.
The menopause typically occurs between 45-55 when the ovaries finish releasing eggs & stop producing the hormones oestrogen & progesterone. Women may experience the menopause in many different ways but symptoms (due to low hormone levels) can include hot flushes & sweats, poor sleep, anxiety, low mood, joint pains, vaginal dryness & bladder problems.
For some, simple lifestyle adjustments may help. Others may need additional help such as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), Cognitivie Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and complementary or alternative therapies. We would be happy to guide you through what is best for you.
