Gynaecology / Management of Menopause

Menopause is not an illness but a natural phenomenon which occurs in women around the age of 50. Menopause and perimenopause (period before, during and after menopause) are a time of major changes coinciding with a decline in levels of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. This decline can affect the organism in different ways: hot flushes, night-time sweating, insomnia, vaginal dryness, changes to the skin, preferential distribution of fat around the stomach, depression, mood swings and reduced solidity of bones.

 

Our team of specialists has extensive experience and wide-ranging skills in effectively managing the symptoms of menopause. It generally relies on complementary approaches such as hormone therapies, specialised medical treatments and changes in lifestyle, for example adopting new eating habits and taking more exercise. These therapies are selected on the basis of the patient’s individual symptoms and are adapted accordingly to obtain optimal results.

 

The Leukerbad Clinic offers the following programmes to ensure effective management of the symptoms of menopause:

 

Our doctors can also provide a traditional gynaecological assessment or one specifically targeted to infertility problems.
