1. Understanding menopause

This covers topics such as what is menopause, what is perimenopause & how can you recognise if you are menopausal. We go through the key symptoms and how you can manage them. We talk through some of the myths that exist about menopause.

2. HRT

We chat about Hormone Replacement Therapy.  This is basically replacing the hormones in your body that it used to produce but doesn’t any more.  We discuss the different types of HRT, are there any risks, how do you take it and lots more.

3. Menopause and your long term health

We outline the long term consequences of menopause and how the hormonal changes your body is going through can have implications far beyond those that you might expect.

4. Vaginal problems in menopause

Vaginal atrophy is very common. Despite the fact that 70% of women have symptoms, most women only learn about it when it happens to them. Many women experience discomfort and pain during intercourse and others have constant burning and irritation.

5. Urinary incontinence

Dr Suzanne O’Sullivan and Dr Rita Galimberti discuss bladder problems, treatment options and some of the myths that surround bladder issues. We discuss why this is not something that you have to accept as there are treatment options available. Dr Suzanne O’Sullivan is a gynaecologist & obstetrician and a recognised expert in the field of urogynaecology.
