Every woman is different and can have different responses to individual treatments. For some women there is immediate success, whereas for others there will need to be adjustments to treatment regimens, or indeed several different regimens might be required before a woman feels herself again.
Not everyone will require a 2nd consultation, however it is advised for women who have received a prescription for HRT or non-hormonal oral medication to avail of a follow-up appointment to assess response to treatment and to determine potential complications and side-effects.
