The average age that women reach the menopause in the UK is 52. Hormonal changes can make the menopause a difficult time for women, with night sweats, mood swings, loss of libido and memory loss being just some of the main symptoms. We can suggest the most suitable form of treatment such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Urogynaecology is the specialty for the diagnosis and treatment of urinary tract infections (cystitis), female incontinence, prolapses and vaginal/perineal pain.
