Menopause is a point in time twelve months after a woman’s last natural period. Women experience various symptoms leading up to menopause due to the changing hormone levels, including hot flushes, anxiety, mood swings, and period irregularities. These symptoms can vary enormously and may significantly impact the quality of your life. We have doctors across our units who can discuss strategies to help you.
