Menopause changes can be a confusing and isolating time for most women. Given the mixed messages about menopause, its numerous and varying presentations and the impact of the symptoms on women, finding help during this period can be challenging.
For some women, going through menopause is a time of reflection, a time some women start to think about their overall health and an opportunity for women to check in and re-assess their health needs.
This is the time to empower women with knowledge to take control of their health and thrive.
Our goal is to demystify menopause, raise awareness of the menopausal symptoms, and support women through their menopause transition with evidence-based information and personalised care. Why many women receive menopause treatment from their Family Physician, many say they need more input that cannot be provided under MSP coverage. While MSP attempts to improve coverage for women's health, it is still a challenge to provide the level of resources, time and choice that can be given at a private clinic. At Perpetual Health Centre, we have the benefit of time to fully assess your needs, symptoms including your medical and family history. We also have the time to explore other contributory factors which could be exacerbating your symptoms.
