Women’s Wellness, Blood Checks, Menopause Advice

We understand that your time is too precious to let your
menopause affect you in a negative way.

Dr Inga has worked as a GP for the last 17 years, the last seven years based in Oxfordshire. Initially, she trained to become a gynaecologist, working in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield. It was during this time that her interest in Women’s Health developed.

During her time as the lead of a Well Woman Clinic in Devon, she has
trained and developed an understanding of well-being related to
menopause and weight loss. 
Having menopausal symptoms can really affect your life in a

detrimental way. Not enough women talk about their menopause
and there is still much uncertainty about what menopause
means and how it can be managed. 

There is an increasing understanding of how hormonal imbalance
causes accelerated ageing of our skin, and our thinking processes and
impairs our overall well-being. If one has experienced menopause
or has had a loved one going through it, they will know how there is
a rapid onset of ageing such as changes in the face and body, soon
after the menopause. It is not just about the hot flushes – it is about

overall ageing.


Here are some symptoms of hormonal imbalance, linked to menopause:

  • Anxiety or irritability

  • Feeling tired all the time

  • Weight loss or weight gain that you cannot explain

  • Increased sweating at previously comfortable temperatures

  • Difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep

  • Dry, dull or sensitive skin

  • Thinning bones (osteopenia)

  • Thinning hair or brittle hair

  • Reduced sex drive

  • Dryness down below (vaginal dryness, frequent thrush or cystitis)

  • Increased fat in the midriff – the so-called “middle age spread”


Since developing her knowledge and expertise in menopause care, Dr Inga knows that a ‘one size fits all approach does not work – by
tailoring advice and therapy for women experiencing issues around menopause, she can provide help when appropriate.
