Menopause Doctor
Dr Ella Russell - Yorkshire Menopause Doctor

Also known as the ‘Yorkshire menopause Doctor’, Dr Russell specialises in supporting women who are transitioning  through the perimenopause, menopause and who are post menopausal.

Dr Russell provides evidence-based advice and treatment which empowers women to get the advice, support and expertise they need when they are deciding upon their treatment options.

Although this time in a woman’s life is a natural progression that happens to all women, it doesn’t mean we are all the same and so a treatment plan should be bespoke to each woman, taking in to consideration her symptoms, her choices and her background health. 

As an NHS and subsequently, a private GP with 25 years of clinical experience, Dr Ella developed an expertise and a passion for supporting women struggling with their perimenopausal and menopausal transition.

She trained in Leeds and Bradford and became a partner in General practice in 2002 which she enjoyed for many years. She also developed her expertise in teaching and training during her time as a partner, developing as an experienced and recognised educationalist over15 years.

Dr Russell is well-recognised locally for providing the highest standard of clinical care to her patients.

Dr Ella says:

"I believe strongly that all patients should be actively listened to, advised on the need for investigations, given bespoke treatment options and followed up safely, efficiently and without huge costs. As NHS services to support women in midlife are difficult to access quickly in the current climate, I believe private peri -menopause and menopause services should be accessible, affordable and of the highest quality and fit around women and their busy lives."

The Perimenopause

The perimenopause is the period in a woman’s life leading up to her last period. It can start for many women in their early 40s so can last up to 10 years in many women.

The Menopause

Officially, the menopause is defined as 12 months since your last period. This can be difficult to be identify if you don’t have periods due to a Mirena coil for example.

Non Hormonal & Hormonal Treatment Options

Some women choose Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to manage their symptoms but some women don’t want prescribed medication or can’t take certain types of HRT. I will help you understand the safest and most effective type of HRT for you so you can make an informed decision about your treatment options. 

Lifestyle & Wellbeing Options

As with all health issues, lifestyle choices and well being are an important part of the management of the perimenopause and menopause. We can explore and discuss nutrition, exercise and on hormonal treatments if desired.
