Hypothyroidism explained and its treatment.
Dr Renée talks about hypothyroidism with some passion. She does not have a thyroid gland and describes the difficulties of treating some people who do not feel well when treated to the UK guidelines. She describes the symptoms of an under active thyroid. She talks about the standard treatment with Levothyroxine (T4) and the controversial addition of Liothyronine (T3) which some people, including Dr Renée, find is the only way they feel normal. Thyroid UK offer a wealth of information on all of the topics covered in this video and other Thyroid disorders. They can be found at: http://www.thyroiduk.org.uk/ There is a petition demanding that T3 is not withdrawn from the many patients in the UK that currently use it.

Contraception part 3: the progestogen only methods. (The mini pill and others)
This video is about Contraception part 3: the progestogen only methods. Progestogens are synthetic hormones designed to mimic the body's own progesterone hormone. There are several different ways of delivering this type of contraception: pills/injections/implants. There is no break for a monthly bleed with these methods and you may have little or no bleeding, regular bleeding or erratic bleeding - it is impossible to predict for any one woman. These methods are often suitable for women who can't have the combined methods of contraception, for example women who get migraines with aura. The depot injection may delay your return to fertility by up to a year. These are the contraception tools to help you decide what method may suit you best; https://www.fpa.org.uk/contraception-help/my-contraception-tool https://www.brook.org.uk/our-services/category/my-contraception-tool NHS guide to contraception: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/contraception/#welcome-to-the-contraception-guide

Menopause and contraception - do you really need it?
This video is about Menopause and contraception. Or more about peri menopause and contraception. Perimenopause can last for 10 years before your periods actually stop for good and you can no longer get pregnant. But for that 10 years, even if you are only having 3 periods (or less) a year, you could potentially get pregnant and we do see women in their early 50's unexpectedly pregnant. Dr Renee discusses the way to avoid this if it would not be desirable for you and how to combine contraception with HRT. This is the BMS guidance on this subject: https://www.womens-health-concern.org/help-and-advice/factsheets/contraception-older-woman/ This is The Latte Lounge group on Facebook, for women over 40: https://www.facebook.com/groups/250120855345911/?ref=br_rs This is The Latte Lounge website: https://www.lattelounge.co/ This is The Menopause Support network: https://www.facebook.com/groups/384849495215750/
