You're not alone

13 million women in the UK are going through menopause right now. There are 34 different symptoms and each person will have a unique mixture of them.

The stigma surrounding menopause can leave women feeling isolated. It's time for something different. You are not alone - we're here to support you.


“Just after my symptoms began I changed my job - from finance to set up my own business. I noticed that with the stress of this change my symptoms got a lot worse. I was having these episodes far more frequently. Migraines, nausea and stomach issues could last up to 48 hours. By my early 40s, my periods had also completely stopped.”


Women should have access to high-quality healthcare that puts them first.

Jude, 51
"I was already thinking about HRT, but after doing the Alva consultation it's really made me want to take action and give it a try. Like the final push I needed to do something about it."
Sharon, 50
"I have been suffering from peri menopausal symptoms for the last few months, ranging from hot flushes to brain fog and mood swings. The assessment from Alva has proved invaluable in helping me understand these symptoms and, more importantly, what steps to take next."
