Why A Menopause Clinic
As the life expectancy for women in Ireland continues to increase, most women can expect to be postmenopausal or in a post reproductive stage for at least one third of their life. Albeit the last part of a woman’s reproductive journey, it is still a significant part. The WHO (World Health Organisation) states that good Sexual and Reproductive Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. The same should apply for women undergoing their menopause transition and women who are postmenopausal. As in life, one shoe does not fit all, and each woman will experience a different menopause and menopause transition. Some women don’t experience any difficulties during the menopause, but for others, their sense of physical, mental and social well-being can be deeply affected by the menopause. The aim of this clinic is to optimise care for women using a holistic, woman-centred approach.
