Do you have menstrual problems? Irregular, absent, excessive or painful periods can severely affect your quality of life, and usually something can be done to help! Sometimes there's an underlying cause such as endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids or polyps. Most of these can be diagnosed by taking a history, examining you and possibly some investigations such as an ultrasound scan. Menopause is when a woman's periods stop, and signifies the end of her reproductive capability. Women at this time in their lives need a special approach to contraception and menstrual control, as the requirement for contraception is less, but menstrual difficulties (heavy and/or irregular) are common.
Adolescents have sexual health and reproductive health needs of a different kind. We have male or female doctors who will provide you with consultation and expertise to help protect you against unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection. Come and talk with us. It's confidential.
