What our clients say

Your consultation

At The Meyer Menopause Clinic the menopause is demystified and put into perspective. From the moment you sit down with Dr Meyer at your initial consultation, our aim is to provide you with a personalised diagnosis and treatment plan.

“After seeing Dr. Meyer I have got my life back. I thought I was going crazy and my family thought I was going crazy. I feel my normal self once again”

Dr Meyer firmly believes that since women will be spending nearly half of their lifetimes on the other side of the menopause they may as well be as healthy, active and strong as they possibly can be. She wants to help women make informed choices about how to live this, potentially wonderful and special, stage of their lives.

Her manner is warm, calm and reassuring

“I felt in safe hands. There is so much conflicting advice out there, save yourself the time and confusion and book to see her asap. Personally, it has been transformational”

The Initial Consultation

Your initial consultation will be with Dr Meyer. She will ask you about symptoms, medical history, current medication, any concerns and expectations. She will also recommend any baseline blood tests (additional cost).

Bring your ‘Clinical Summary Sheet’, which your own GP can provide. Also, any recent pelvic ultrasound scans (USS), blood tests or relevant investigations.

The Treatment Plan appointment two to six weeks post the Initial consultation

Dr Meyer will discuss her diagnosis with you and prescribe a course of medication.

Review appointment eight to twelve weeks after commencing treatment

This is an opportunity to discuss how you are feeling, whether symptoms have improved or stayed the same, or whether you have any concerns. It is important at this stage to bear in mind that any treatment is still bedding in, but you are likely to have noticed some improvement.

Your level of medication may be increased and further blood tests may be required to ensure your hormone levels are being brought back into balance.

“I had no idea that balancing my hormones could make such a difference to my quality of life”.

Six month review

This is a full review of your treatment and how you are feeling. Any underlying issues will be discussed and appropriate changes to your treatment prescribed. A pelvic USS may be booked to monitor your body’s internal condition and to spot any unusual signs or issues.

On-going reviews

It is a good idea to review your progress and treatment plan on a six-monthly basis. Dr Meyer will be able to fine-tune your medication to ensure you continue to experience a full and healthy lifestyle.

“Dr Meyer was very thorough in her investigation and management. I can say that my relationship with my husband is back on track and I feel so much better”.

Women may experience menopause symptoms anywhere from two to seven years. As menopause is genetically affected, it is helpful to chat with female family members: sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and cousins. It is very likely that they may have experienced a similar hormonal journey to yours.

As women we are similar yet very different. No two women have the same periods or pregnancies. Hence all women will not have an identical menopause journey. It is therefore important to know that there can be a wide variation both in intensity and duration of menopausal symptoms.

For example, some women may never experience night sweats or hot flushes, whilst others may be burdened with these very symptoms decades after periods have stopped.

The most intense symptoms — typically period changes and night sweats — last for approximately four years, and they tend to feel the worst during the perimenopause transition.

Studies have shown that some women experience hot flushes that can last up to 10 years. However, this is one end of the extreme. Those women who get vasomotor symptoms, i.e. night sweats and hot flushes after the last period rather than before, tend to have shorter suffering, on average three and a half years.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to tell which end of the spectrum an individual woman will be. There is no denying that these symptoms can prove to be very distressing and can impact on our self-esteem, relationships, productivity, focus and sleep, to name but a few sequelae.

The key thing to remember is that menopause is the beginning of a new physiological phase of our lives and we have to decide how we will live it. We have to be aware of the choices we have and the losses we can suffer if we do not reflect on those choices. The changes will be forever and how you will be affected will be a matter dependent on your genetics, lifestyle, diet, weight and hormone therapy.
