When dealing with the menopause, women need a lot more help than just a quick prescription of HRT and believe me, we speak from experience! That is why at Elan Medical Clinic we are extending our services to medically help and support women who are trying to cope with their menopausal symptoms.
Our medical director, Sue Ibrahim, understands only too well how the the effects of the menopause can impact on the daily lives of women. Having spent the last thirty years treating women with skin related problems, Sue has helped a wide range of women who have are either pre menopausal, peri menopausal or post menopausal. Hormonal changes in the bod can trigger anxiety, depression, fears of growing old, fears of looking older.
‘These women need more than just a quick prescription of HRT’ says our medical director, Sue Ibrahim.
According to Sue Ibrahim, women need a full holistic approach to their menopausal symptoms, not just a quick prescription of HRT.
‘Women need to assessed thoroughly because the menopause throws up all sorts of problems, both physical, emotional and social.’
It can be a time where personal relationships can be under a great strain. Women may have problems concerning their partners, their children and their ageing parents. And just when when a women needs that extra bit of energy and strength, the menopause kicks in. Women are often left with feelings of failure, they can’t seem to cope, they feel constantly tired and tearful. They look in the mirror to find a woman they do not recognise anymore; with thinning hair, frown lines, wrinkles and dull, lifeless skin. They can be forgetful, they have aches and pains in their muscles and joints. They can loose interest in sex; they feel unattractive, their body shape has altered, they put on weight. The menopause can trigger all these things.
