Amenorrhea Treatment London


amenorrhea treatment londonAmenorrhea Treatment London: Amenorrhea or no periods affects a significant percentage of the female population. Women coming to our Guardian featured Harley Street Clinic are, more often than not, potentially fertile. For some patients, following the relevant tests, it is purely a case of  hormone levels which are preventing menstruation from occurring. Natural medicine can naturally regulate the body’s production of hormones and is prescribed in accordance with each patient’s requirements.

At our amenorrhea treatment London clinic, lifestyle is also reviewed and addressed as several lifestyle factors can interfere with menstruation e.g. stress, weight loss, excessive exercise, overall energy levels, diet and allergies – to name but a few. Again, natural medicine and/or non-invasive testing can address any of these issues in the amenorrhea treatment.

Hormone contraceptives interfere with the body’s regulation of hormones and some women find that they need a natural ‘kick-start’ to the menstruation process following prolonged use of the oral contraceptive pill. A more natural approach is requested, in particular, by patients who are considering pregnancy.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can be another cause of amenorrhea. Not all patients who come through the clinic doors have been previously diagnosed with PCOS but their test results will quickly indicate whether they have PCOS or not. Natural medicine is very effective at managing PCOS.

We use diagnostic functional medicine tests to investigate and determine the clear root cause of the patient’s amenorrhea. Natural medicine, which is licensed by the UK Government’s Department of Health, is then given to the patient for the amenorrhea treatment, addressing the imbalance which the test results highlight.

Each prescription is prepared and dispensed to meet the unique needs of each patient. Our patients find that this natural and gentle approach works better than a one size fits all approach using synthetic hormones.

At the clinic, we understand that this is a stressful condition, which can seriously impact a woman’s self-esteem and leave them feeling anxious and incomplete, especially if they have a desire to reproduce. This is also taken into account when the prescription is prepared in order to address and reduce any anxiety, which could also be contributing to the individual’s condition.
