The Maypole Menopause Clinic
I am delighted to have introduced the first dedicated private menopause clinic in Northern Ireland in 2019,offering women comprehensive menopause assessment and treatment.
There are many myths and misconceptions about menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Many women want more detailed discussion around this than can be offered in a busy GP surgery.
With female life expectancy increasing many women will live up to a third of their life after the menopause and deserve good quality of life.The benefits of HRT outweigh perceived risks for the majority of women.
Symptoms can vary and some lucky women have none!
Symptoms are caused by lower levels of the hormone oestrogen produced by the ovaries.
I offer relaxed thirty minute consultations including detailed medical history, symptom and lifestyle assessment, discussion on risks/benefits of treatments and will then recommend the most suitable treatment options. Body mass index assessment and blood pressure measurement is included.
Due to high demand several GPs who specialises in women's health and Dr Karen McKinney Gynaecologist are also offering menopause consultations through Kingsbridge.
PLEASE NOTE:Gynaecological examination, blood tests or ultrasound scans are not included.
If you have gynaecological symptoms requiring assessment please see a general gynaecologist as this clinic is for menopause/HRT advice only.
Review appointments are not essential but are available on request.
Further email advice is not included .
I send detailed letters back to your GP suggesting treatment options available for you and send you a copy as well.
As menopause is considered a natural part of life it is not covered by private health insurance.
