Menopause

Cookham Menopause Cafe  - Update 

Dr Azmy Birdi, who is an accredited specialist in Women’s health and Menopause medicine, alongside Dr Clare Westcott, training further in Women’s health, held a course of 3 menopause café sessions. Slides are below.

Dr Birdi will soon be starting a series of regular posts on this page 

Session 1 (16/6/21) will look closely at the underlying causes and symptoms of the menopause.

Session 2 (23/06/21) goes into detail about treatment options available from HRT to alternative therapies.

Session 3 (30/6/21) looks at long term women’s health and sexual health through and after the menopause, including topics such as weight management and cardiovascular health.

Throughout the course we aim to bust myths, reduce stigma, make the sessions enjoyable and hopefully improve womens’, their partners and societies views about the menopause to embrace it in a much more positive and celebrated way! One day we hope to hold these sessions in person but for now we have to hold them virtually. Despite this we still hope that it will be interesting, enjoyable and encouraging for all who attend. The Zoom Session ID and passwords are available on the Cookham Medical Centre Website 2 days prior to each session

The slides from the meetings will be published a few days after the meeting:
