Hormone replacement by implants.
Hormone replacement becomes simplified with a
twice a year visit. You can say goodbye to pills,
patches and creams, if you choose, although I still
use these for those who prefer them. We have responded to the cessation of the production of implants by MSD by encouraging Antony Condina at the Green Pharmacy to make them in his laboratory in Norwood, South Australia,

This is used for upset mood, loss of energy, sore
breasts, increasing weight, loss of energy, loss of
libido, failing memory, dry vagina and vulval skin
discomfort. Many of my patients have found that
their quality of life has been revolutionised by the
use of this hormone.
I use testosterone to treat the premenstrual syndrome/ovarian dysfunction and it seems to be remarkably successful. Most of the women who had heavy periods and a shortened cycle lose their bleeding problem and avoid hysterectomy. The thought is everpresent in my mind that if we can avoid sore breasts recurrently every month, might we avoid those breast cancers in the younger women. The example of the sad experience suffered by Kylie Minogue springs to mind.
Smear tests and Colposcopy.
It was once stated by Malcolm Coppleson that,
if every woman was conscientous about having her
cervical smear test checked, that death from cancer
of the cervix would cease. I tend to do smear tests
once a year despite the general recommendation
being to have it done every two years. For those
of you who show a 'positive smear' the problem is
investigated in the rooms with a magnifying
instrument called a colposcope. This requires no
more than the routine 'internal examination'.
If biopsy is required, the result is available by the
following morning and anxiety may be relieved.
