Menopause and PMS Clinic: Psycho-endocrine

This part of the clinic recognises the association of hormonal changes, personality and environmental factors in the aetiology of many mood disorders in women. This has been investigated for more than 20 years by Mr. Studd�s team who have shown in scientific trials that oestrogens are effective in peri-menopausal depression, pre-menstrual depression, post-natal depression (Table 2) as well as being valuable in the overall treatment of anorexia nervosa and chronic fatigue syndrome which are both often associated with low oestrogen levels and low bone density.
