The 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 the menopause. It can last for a number of 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. It will be commencing in September 2023 and will be based in the Lee Road Clinic.
Patients who are troubled by menopause symptoms are able to 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.
