The Menopause Clinic London – who should attend?

The Menopause Clinic London is dedicated to the provision of care to women in the menopause transition who experience debilitating symptoms. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recently published guidelines on the management of the menopause in which they encourage General Practitioners to offer HRT to more women, therefore many women needing HRT do not need specialist management such as that offered at the Menopause Clinic London, but will receive entirely successful treatment from their GPs. However, there are women whose needs are such that they should be seen in a specialist / dedicated clinic such as the Menopause Clinic London. These include the following:

  • Women wishing to consider taking their HRT in the form of implants, where the GP may be unable to offer this service.
  • Women whose menopausal symptoms have failed to respond to conventional HRT in the GP surgery.
  • Women who may have contra-indications to conventional oestrogen therapy.
  • Women wishing to explore the treatment of menopausal symptoms without oestrogen.
  • Women with libido problems, not responding to oestrogen therapy.
  • Women uncertain about the benefits and dangers of hormone replacement therapy.
  • Women who wish to know more about premature menopause or surgical menopause or consider egg donation IVF (visit www.prematuremenopausecliniclondon.co.uk for more information).
  • Any peri-menopausal woman seeking information and advice on matters relating to the menopause or to well-woman assessment. This may include problems with anxiety, lack of confidence, concern over the aging process, lack of concentration, poor memory etc.

Issues to consider ahead of your appointment:

You may come alone, or bring a friend or relative.

There are no specific preparations required, but you might wish to consider the following:

  • write down questions you might wish to ask so that you do not forget
  • you may wish to complete the questionnaire here (This is a validated ‘quality of life in menopause’ questionnaire which will help you to describe your symptoms better and help us to provide you with the right tools and treatments to deal with them)
  • list the main symptoms that trouble you, again so that you do not forget
  • bring with you any medication you are currently taking
  • please check your appointment letter for any specific instructions
  • some of the questions you will be asked during the consultation include your general health, the medication you are currently taking, any allergies, any operations or major illnesses you have had in the past: so please think about these things.

In addition, please bring the following:

  • Your full address and telephone number(s)
  • Your appointment card or appointment letter
  • Your GP’s name and address, and any referral letter

During your appointment

Your first consultation will last 30-60 minutes.

At the first consultation a detailed history will be taken. A physical examination may be undertaken (a chaperone will be present for all physical examinations). Investigations may be arranged, and these will usually include an internal ultrasound scan, blood tests to include hormone tests, and other special tests such as bone density and mammogram – unless you have already had these.

There will be plenty of time for you to ask any questions.

After your appointment

Treatment, tailored to your specific presentation, may be commenced immediately.

Results of any investigations may be required before commencing treatment.

You may be asked to keep a symptom diary.

Treatments may be hormonal or alternatives.

Follow-up appointments are usually required, either to commence treatment if results of investigations are required, or to review the impact of any treatment started.

Follow up appointments usually last 20-30 minutes.
