Menopause and early menopause clinics
 
Women experiencing problems at menopause can be overlooked. Promoting a healthy menopause can avoid some chronic diseases later in life.  The Gynaecology Service offers two menopause clinics: one for women having problems with menopause and one for women with an early menopause (under the age of 45).

The clinics see women with:

 

  • Problems with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
  • Complex medical issues
  • Bleeding on HRT
  • Early menopause.

 

We give advice on all symptoms and treatment options, including support on healthy lifestyle.

In addition, women with diagnosed early menopause have direct access in clinic to a specialist fertility doctor who can advise on fertility issues, saving the need for separate appointments with the fertility service. The clinic also provides training for doctors and nurses undertaking menopause courses.

 

How to refer:

 

 Referrals are made via Choose and Book.

 

Alternatively, referrals can be made by letter to McNair Centre, Guy’s Hospital, Great Maze Pond, London SE1 9RT or by fax to 020 7188 3674.

For more information please contact Professor Janice Rymer (Consultant Gynaecologist) janice.rymer@kcl.ac.uk or Debra Holloway (Consultant Nurse) debra.holloway@gstt.nhs.uk.
