Our hormones are like secret little molecular messengers, which can affect many parts of our body and mind. They are secreted by glands in your endocrine system – a complex interconnected web, affected by many other aspects of your health, including diet, physical exercise and body weight. Even your mood and the amount of stress in your life can have an impact.. All these factors can then affect your hormones, so they are often used as a part of your overall management at WHRIA.

Some of the common hormonal issues we specialise in are:

  • Menopause
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and its more severe form, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  • Polycystic ovaries
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
