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”.

Perimenopause is a period of our lives that on average starts around 45 years of age. It is the start of the decline of our female hormones that culminates in menopause at around 51 years of age in the UK.

Women can be in this phase for up to 10 years. That is to say that you may be experiencing all or some of the perimenopausal symptoms for a long time before periods cease.

It is a difficult prediction to make and varies from one woman to another. If symptoms of perimenopause start under 45 years of age, then this may be heralding an earlier menopause.

During the perimenopause we may still be having regular, irregular, frequent or infrequent periods associated with up to 100 other signs and symptoms.

All of these can be due to hormonal imbalance. Perimenopause can be treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy. Treatment will depend on what symptoms of perimenopause you are experiencing. If it is heavy bleeding or irregular periods for example, then the first aim is to regulate periods or reduce bleeding. This is because increase in menstrual blood loss can make women anaemic.

Anemia can have serious health sequelae such as breathlessness, tiredness, lack of concentration and thinning of the hair. At the same time, we may also need to address any other symptoms of hormone imbalance that you may be experiencing. These could be hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and anxiety. The management of your symptoms is likely to include estrogen replacement therapy.
