What we treat

London Hormone Clinic

Peri-menopause

This occurs leading up to menopause and is caused by fluctuating oestrogen levels. Some women do not experience this and their periods just stop suddenly.

Other women can be peri-menopausal for months or years. It can be quite a distressing time for some women as their hormones can fluctuate drastically causing months of no periods and hot flushes and months of heavy periods.

Management options

Conventional approach Our approach at LHC
Conventional HRT – this can result in heavier bleeding and worsening of emotional symptoms. We prescribe low dose bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to optimize hormone balance in the body and relieve symptoms. Diet and exercise can also help to control symptoms.
