Beverly Benster is a Gynaecologist with an interest in conditions related to the menopause. Beverly completed her training in Gynaecology at the University of Nottingham and trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Nottingham, Malta and London.
As research fellow to Professor John Studd at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital she learnt about management of the menopause and premenstrual syndrome. Her research focussed on the use of natural progesterone cream for the management of the menopause. Her research work included evaluating the effect on climacteric (menopausal) symptoms on quality of life, and the safety of different doses of hormone creams.
Areas of expertise:
- Bio-identical hormones
- Lifestyle management for menopause
She practices for the NHS at London's Chelsea & Westminster Hospital and privately as part of the team of menopause experts hand picked by Professor John Studd at the London PMS & Menopause Clinic on Wimpole Street.
Beverly says, "Prevention is better than cure. The right prescription and dose of hormones is very important but don’t overlook good nutrition, exercise and sleep".
She says that she chose to specialise in gynaecology because she wants to help women make the postmenopausal years the best years.
