Getting hot under the collar: menopause and HRT
When is the menopause over? Can I do a blood test to diagnose it? How long can I be on HRT? Are there non-hormonal medications?
Mahesh will discuss pressing questions such as the symptoms of the menopause, the age of menopause onset, and the use of hormones (including testosterone!) in therapy and their potential side effects.
Dr Mahesh Perera is a consultant gynaecologist, based at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and Stobhill, and Chair of the Scottish menopause network.
