In this episode, Dr Louise Newson is joined by Dr Rebecca Gibbs, an Obstetrics and Gynaecological Consultant at The Royal Free Hospital in London. Dr Gibbs is also an ambassador for The Daisy Network, a charity dedicated to providing information and support to women diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency.
In this podcast, Dr Gibbs and Dr Newson have an in-depth conversation about the challenges of being diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Insufficiency (premature menopause) whilst going through fertility treatment. They also discuss the reality of menopause education for gynaecologists in the U.K. and why it’s so important that women take their HRT when diagnosed with the menopause younger than expected.
Dr Rebecca Gibbs' Three Take Home Tips for women dealing with POI:
- Take your HRT. You may well feel much better.
- Take your HRT. It’ll prevent long term health problems.
- Don’t be afraid to push for the help that you need when dealing with healthcare professionals.
