One of Dr Merron's key areas of interest is gynaecology and women's health. She offers a wide range of tailored assessments, screening and management options in this important and sensitive area of medicine. These include:
Well Woman Assessment
The NHS cervical screening programme does not start screening young women until the age of 25 years. Many young women are at risk of pre-cancerous changes before this age. If you would like cervical screening including HPV testing, please make an appointment or enquiry for advice.
The menopause can be a frightening time for many women and although it is a natural part of the life process, women can suffer from a number of symptoms including hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, irritability, depression, headaches, racing heart, joint and muscle aches, fatigue, changes in sex drive, vaginal dryness and problems with bladder control.
The good news is that there are safe and effective treatments for these symptoms.
During your consultation we will discuss your symptoms, take a holistic view of your health and lifestyle and you will be offered a breast and gynaecological examination if appropriate. We can perform blood tests to determine your individual hormone profile and you will have the option of a mammogram and cervical screening if desired. Appropriate treatment options will be discussed and, where appropriate, a private prescription can be issued.
