Note: you will have to do some due diligence! But here are some resources to connect you to a provider who specializes in women's health, hormones, and perimenopause:

If you are outside of the US and want to find a practitioner, visit:

  • United Kingdom: there are a number of menopausal clinics - you can search Nordic Labs (above), and you can simply search "menopausal clinic London" or "menopausal clinic [location]". There are options, they just aren't always in the NHS system.

  • Australia: RN labs

  • New Zealand: NutriSearch
