From that first bleed, through our childbearing years all the way to menopause - we are here to support women throughout. The potential of our body to conceive and give birth is miraculous! However it certainly doesn't feel that way for many - excruitatingly painful periods, pain during sex and mood swings are three of the most common complaints we hear from our patients.
'Women's health' covers such a broad range of conditions and we roughly divide it into 4 categories (with many patients sitting in more than one).
Hormonal Imbalance: for example in PCOS, acne, cyclical headaches and migraines,.
Pelvic Pain: for example during ovulation or menstruation, pain during sex and constant pelvic discomfort.
Menopause: many women find that aside from the obvious menopausal complaints such as insomnia, brain fog and hot flushes, many pre-exisiting conditions flare up at this time such as headaches, eczema and joint pain.
Mental and emotional: for example PMS, post natal depression birth trauma and anxiety surrounding pregnancy.
