Menopause symptoms can be devastating for many women no matter when they start. At these times you may no longer feel like yourself.
Your periods may still be regular or may have stopped altogether, but you will likely be suffering with mood swings, loss of libido, anxiety, loss of confidence, chronic fatigue and hot flushes. These symptoms often vary in severity and can develop suddenly.
The onset of these symptoms can be like becoming a teenager again, with huge emotional and hormonal turbulence.
7th April 2022 - There is currently a national shortage of both Sandrena and Oestrogel. If you are on 1mg Sandrena and 2 pumps of Oestrogel we would suggest asking your GP to prescribe Evorel 50 patches instead and if you are on 1.5mg Sandrena or 4 pumps of Oestrogel the dose equivalent is 100mcg Evorel patch. Continue on Utrogestan as usual.
Our clinics are open with social distancing measures in place.
Menopause symptoms do not disappear during lockdown, so we are here to support you through this difficult time.

Are you feeling confused due to the conflicting advice on using HRT and unsure what is happening to you?
Here at the Bristol Menopause & Wellwoman Clinic we can help you through this difficult time by providing a holistic, expert service in a caring and empathetic environment. Medication can also be prescribed if appropriate.
Having struggled to find the help required during her own menopause, our founder Hazel Hayden started undertaking her own research into the Menopause and the various treatment options available. Bristol Menopause and Wellwoman Clinic was set up to ensure that other women did not have to struggle through the peri-menopause and menopause without professional help and support.
We can offer you a personalised and individual consultation to review your symptoms, lifestyle and tailor treatments to suit you. We are also happy to consult via Video if you are unable to attend our clinic in person. Please email or telephone to discuss this. At the end of the consultation, a detailed report will be sent to your GP for continuity of care, and we will arrange a review date with you to monitor symptoms and treatment.
Our clinic also able to prescribe body-identical hormone replacement therapy, which is safer than older HRT treatments. We offer a wider range of HRT treatments than the NHS.
Bristol Menopause & Wellwoman Clinic is regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
Every woman will be subject to the menopause at some point.
If symptoms arrive earlier than expected, during your 30s or 40s, having a change in your wellbeing can be really disconcerting, but having them later into your 50s can also be devastating as you may think you have sailed through your menopause.
Even worse, the increase in irritability and the emotional rollercoaster that comes with these changes can adversely impact on life at home and work.
The menopause can also have long term effects on both mental and physical health, causing a deterioration to an individual’s overall wellbeing and self-esteem.
To complement our services, some women may also benefit from wellbeing life coaching to navigate through their menopause. With this in mind, you may wish to visit Jules Hellens' womens wellbeing life coaching website: https://wellbeinglife.co.uk/
"I have now had two menopause consultations with Janet of Bristol Menopause and can’t praise her highly enough. She has a warm, caring and compassionate nature. Entering the menopause has been an incredibly distressing time for me as it has made me so unwell, but Janet is an excellent listener and shows great empathy. She is highly professional and clearly has extensive clinical knowledge around the subject and I always feel in safe hands with her. She always gives me hope and this was especially so in the beginning, when things were very bleak and I was really struggling with the debilitating symptoms of peri menopause. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Janet to anyone in need of Menopause advice, care and treatment."

"About four years ago I made an appointment with my GP, convinced I had early onset dementia. I had problems with my memory, lack of concentration and cognitive changes but was quickly dismissed and sent on my way.
By the time I finally made an appointment with Jan in August last year, I had continued to suffer with these and other symptoms, including anxiety, tearfulness, sleep issues, mood swings, irritability, fatigue, lack of energy, weight gain, dry/thinning skin and hair, painful joints/muscles and more. My family and work life were suffering and I was at breaking point.
Jan immediately put me at ease, listened and most importantly understood. She made me realise that my symptoms were totally normal, that I wasn’t in fact losing my mind. She fully explained treatment options and together we came up with a plan for me to move forward with. This included HRT and with a few tweaks along the way we have found a regime that totally works for me.
Jan is such a lovely, compassionate consultant who has a warm and easy going way with clients. Without sounding too dramatic I feel as though I have been given my life back. I can’t thank Jan and the Bristol Menopause clinic enough."

“I have been through the menopause myself and found it difficult to access the correct treatment. I have spent the last 15 years researching and developing my expertise in Women's Health and the effects of diet, exercise and lifestyle on the perimenopause and menopause.
I am passionate about women’s health and believe that no woman should have to suffer with these symptoms. As everyone is different, I develop an individual tailored plan for each of my clients.
Follow-up consultations are also important to ensure that the plan is correct and working for you.”
