Gynaecological Endocrinology

Gynaecological Endocrinology

We deal with diagnosis and treatment of sexual hormone disruption. We also offer advice on contraceptive and reproductive methods to patients with high risk conditions, such as congenital heart disease or early menopause. 

Description

The Gynaecological Endocrinology Unit works with other units and specialists, such as: Cardiology (Congenital Heart Disease Unit), Paediatric Endocrinology, Assisted Reproduction and the Gynaecology and Obstetrics Ultrasound Unit. It also has sub-specialist and multi-disciplinary appointments, such as paediatric and adolescent gynaecology. 

It deals with treatment of the following:

  • Climacteric symptomatology, which are the symptoms preceding and following the menopause
  • Early menopause
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome, a disorder where the ovary produces more male hormones than normal.
  • Hypogonadism, a disorder where the ovaries produce little or no sexual hormones (oestrogen). 
  • Hyperprolactinemia, a disorder where a woman has a higher than normal level of the prolactin hormone, that stimulates milk production. 
  • Changes to the menstrual cycle., amongst other symptomatology
