HRT London Doctors

A Gynaecological Expert Team

A team of Consultant Gynaecologists and Hormone Replacement Therapy specialists, headed by Professor Studd can help to answer questions such as:

  1. How or why would I know if HRT might be a treatment option for me?
  2. If HRT is an appropriate option for me, where can I get the best advice? Or,
  3. When is the best time to start taking HRT?

In the expert article, Menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs, Professor John Studd helps the provide the information many women seek.

Prof Studd explains that the most common symptoms of oestrogen deficiency around the time of the menopause include the following symptoms:

  • Hot flushes and night sweats
  • Insomnia and tiredness together with headaches
  • Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse is another highly characteristic symptom of hormone deficiency.
  • Cyclical depression before the periods stop and may be a mixture of premenstrual depression and perimenopausal depression.
  • Just feeling below par, tired, anxious, and grumpy
  • A poor sex drive and
  • possible marital problems
  • Low bone density is another metabolic symptom (this needs checking using a DEXA bone density scanner).

Prof Studd goes onto say, "There are other symptoms which are disputed by some doctors but would in my view include tiredness, loss of libido, anxiety and depression". Due to differences in approach from different doctors, women may prefer to seek advice from a team of specialists. Prof Studd's team is rapidly expanding and now includes the following Consultant Gynaecologists:
