The menopause is when a woman stops having menstrual periods. For many women, their periods can become unpredictable over a few months or years before they stop altogether and may experience symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and mood changes. Some women may notice vaginal dryness which can make sex uncomfortable.
The menopause can be a really tough time for some women when many changes are happening. It is OK to ask for help if you are struggling with menopausal symptoms. Talk to your GP first and, if required, they can refer you to our specialist menopause clinic. Our specialist service is tailored to each woman’s individual needs and our consultant works with you to provide you with the support you require going through this stage in your life.
