Menopause is a natural part of the ageing process, leading to the cessation of a woman's menstruation and ability to get pregnant. The hormonal changes are the ones that stop women from having periods. The ovaries will drop the number of hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) they produce. This change occurs over time and your period will stop eventually; however, going through menopause can be challenging for some. Many women have difficulty sleeping or may experience mild to moderate depression. The symptoms can last as long as 7-8 years in some women.
Early symptoms can include:
✔ poor sleep,
✔ vaginal dryness,
✔ lack of libido,
✔ hot flushes,
✔ irregular periods,
✔ mood changes and weight gain (caused by a slowing of the metabolism).
It is common to be emotionally affected by the menopause and most women will notice changes in how they feel. Common examples are anxiety or irritability, triggered by the amount of stress or lack of sleep. It is advised to see a doctor if you feel overwhelmed by the mood swings you experience or the depressive episodes. Our GPs will be able to help you and recommend a treatment that works for you.
At our private menopause clinic in Birmingham, you will have access to a team of specialists who can help you cope with the onset of menopause and the impact of its symptoms on your life. We offer a number of treatment options in line with the NICE Guidelines on managing menopause.
Our services include:
At Midland Health, you will not only have direct access to private menopause specialists but also to an experienced multidisciplinary team of medical experts who can guide you through menopause. Appointments are available at our advanced clinic or online from the comfort of your home, we are also able to arrange remote blood tests if necessary.
Some women can also experience premature menopause, which can happen before they turn 40 years old. This can be a natural occurrence because your ovaries stop working or it can be a result of chromosomal and autoimmune disorders triggered by a hysterectomy or chemotherapy and radiotherapy that you might have had in the past.
Midland Health’s specialist menopause clinic can support younger women (under 40) who are suffering from ovarian inefficiency. Our team can help you manage the symptoms of premature menopause, as well as the long-term impact it can have on your health, including offering fertility advice.
If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of menopause, it may be helpful to book a check-up with a Midland Health GP or Gynaecologist at our menopause clinic in Birmingham.
When you first come to see a private menopause specialist at Midland Health Birmingham, your initial appointment will usually last about 30 minutes. During that time, you will be given the opportunity to discuss your symptoms with your GP, undergo a general health exam and talk about further testing and/or treatment options. These appointments can be face-to-face in our state-of-the-art clinic or virtually through an online consultation.
You can talk to our menopause doctors about any questions or concerns that you may have. Your doctor will go through your medical history, concerns and symptoms and also look at any risk factors you may have. Following your first consultation, you will agree to a shared treatment plan with your menopause doctor. The doctor will be able to prescribe and initiate the treatment required.
Sometimes, further testing may be required to confirm the menopause diagnosis and find the best management plan for you. Testing may include:
At Midland Health, we aim to support you through these changes and are always on hand for expert advice and guidance. A consultation with one of our experienced GPs within our private menopause clinic can help to plan a pathway through your menopause; find ways to manage symptoms, prevent other conditions associated with menopause and move with confidence into later life.
It’s also an opportunity for you to discuss anything that may be worrying or concerning you. Our Midland Health GPs are great listeners and can offer you the right medical advice and help you live life better.

Menopause is a natural process where a woman stops having her monthly menstruation due to age-related hormonal changes. If you have achieved menopause, you will no longer have monthly bleeding and you will not be able to have a baby naturally.
Most women will have achieved menopause by the age of 51-52. If that happens before the age of 45, it’s considered premature or early menopause.
Menopause is caused by a decrease in oestrogen production by the ovaries. This can happen as a result of ageing or it can be caused by a number of medical conditions and procedures, such as:
You may begin to experience irregular periods for several months up to a year before menopause is fully achieved when menstruation cycles stop altogether. For some women, however, monthly bleeding can stop suddenly.
The lack of oestrogen is also one of the main causes of osteoporosis (softening of the bones), so women who have achieved menopause often develop osteoporosis too.
Menopause causes a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as hot flashes, mood swings, low libido and difficulties sleeping which can last for several years after menopause has been reached. For most women, the symptoms gradually reduce and disappear within 4-5 years but they may last longer.
If you are suffering from severe menopause symptoms, you should consult with your GP to find the right solution for you. You may be referred to an HRT specialist near you to receive hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This involves taking female hormones, primarily oestrogen and progesterone. Testosterone may also be beneficial to women as the levels of this can reduce in the peri-menopause and menopause.
Your risk of cardiovascular disease such as heart attacks and strokes is increased after the menopause so taking oestrogen can reduce this risk.
Dementia has been shown to be linked to low oestrogen so taking this could well prevent the onset of dementia. The link with osteoporosis and low oestrogen has been known for some time so taking oestrogen can prevent this and reduce risk.
We know that oestrogen helps skin and hair and can increase the collagen in the skin giving a more youthful appearance.
