Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her periods have stopped for over 12 months.
Perimenopause is time leading up to this when periods can be irregular and women start to experience symptoms of menopause. It can last for several years.
Cork University Maternity Hospital is delighted to announce the launch of its new Complex Menopause Clinic. The service is dedicated to helping patients with serious medical conditions to manage their Menopausal Symptoms based in the Lee Road Clinic.
Patients who are troubled by menopause symptoms can receive advice and treatment in the community through their GP, Practice Nurse, or Family Planning Clinic.
Unfortunately, patients with certain medical conditions including thrombosis, cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, hormone-sensitive cancers, etc. are advised to be seen by a Menopause Specialist to discuss management options. If you suffer from any of the conditions listed above and are a potential patient, please attend your GP first to see if you are eligible for referral.
