What to expect
Book your appointment
Start by booking your initial appointment. The appointment types are as follows:
Before your appointment
We ask you to fill out a pre appointment health questionnaire and a specific menopause symptom questionnaire
At your appointment, we will go through your symptoms, decide whether blood tests are needed and that you are up to date with your smear and breast screening if needed.
1 week after your initial appointment, we will meet to discuss the results of any blood tests and decide whether further functional medicine testing is of benefit and then we formulate a personalised treatment plan, which may be simply prescribing HRT. Some patients will benefit from help from our wellness team, but these will be clearly discussed with you and you can decide what is best for you.
We suggest a follow up appointment at 3 months where adjustments to medication (for example adding testosterone, adjusting the strength) can be made and we suggest repeating the symptom questionnaire and if you are tracking your weight, the Inbody Body Composition analysis to measure the impact of the lifestyle and wellness support and adjustments and medications we prescribed.
