Menopause - Dr Sue Loughlin
Dr Sue Loughlin's menopause clinic is available to enrolled and non-enrolled patients.
At your first appointment you will discuss up to date evidence along with the risks and benefits of HRT and alternative options to decide most suitable and effective treatment. Examination will include breast check, gynecological examination if needed, and cardiovascular risk assessment (including blood tests if not already done).
If HRT is deemed suitable a discussion on all of the available types, oral vs. patches or creams, the progesterones and which ones, and contraceptive cover if needed.
A highly recommended 30 page booklet is given for free and other leaflets as appropriate. HRT or alternatives maybe prescribed if all requirements are completed or delayed for follow-up visit.
After the consultation a brief summary of the consult can be sent to you to keep and/or given to your regular GP.
