Fully tailored bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is available in Rochdale through the wonderful Menopause Clinic.
Our clinic is led by Deborah Vines, an expert in the field of BHRT treatments. Through her understanding, and leading laboratory analysis of your current hormone levels, you will receive a perfect blended mix of hormones to work with your body and address the impact of diminished hormone levels.
The bioidentical hormone replacement therapies can be used for people at a number of stages of their life, but we specialise in menopause and perimenopause.
We have helped hundreds of women from Rochdale and the surrounding area, they make the short trip to visit our clinic for a thorough assessment and conversation in a friendly setting.
At the consultation you will be treated as an individual – while there may be some similarities between those who seek BHRT treatments, the same hormones being depleted, this is not to say that a unique mix is not required in each case. We all age differently, our hormones levels all change at varying rates.
This perfect blend is achieved through sophisticated laboratory analysis of your hormones levels, this achieved by the pain-free taking of a blood sample.
Your hormones will then be delivered via prescription – you can visit a local pharmacy or have them delivered to your door.
There is only an annual requirement to visit our clinic, to ensure the hormone level is still desirable, taking a new sample to assess any changed need. However, that is not to say you only speak to us once a year, we hold regular follow-ups and are available at all times to answer queries.
This is an ongoing relationship with your health and wellbeing our prime concern.
Benefits of BHRT
Menopause and perimenopause have a dramatic impact on many women, the symptoms can include tiredness, loss of libido, stress and many other factors too.
However, while this may be a natural stage of life that is not to say there is a need to suffer in silence or just accept the worst of the impact.
Hormone replacement can do so much to lessen the impact, allowing you to go through this time of life with far less distress and negative side effects.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy tackles the root cause of these problems, it addresses the hormones you have lost and seen depleted.
Hormone replacement has, of course, been available for some time. BHRT takes this to a new level.
The hormones are not approximations, they are not close matches, instead, they are designed to be identical. This ensures your body is happy to take them on and they have the desired impact.
The BHRT hormones might be compared to eating fruit and vegetables compared to taking a vitamin pill – for all the value of vitamin supplements, they do not work as well as simply eating a healthy diet.
BHRT is that balanced diet, the hormones you need in a natural format.
Perhaps most commonly, hormone replacement therapy is undertaken as the impact of menopause is already well established, but this does not need to be the case.
As soon as you have any sense of change, the BHRT can be hugely beneficial – why wait until things get really troubling?
However, there is a huge benefit at any stage – if menopause is having an impact on your life, then BHRT will help. It is that simple.
The hormones address the depletion in key hormones such as oestrogen, which can be almost completely gone into a person’s forties, while other hormones are also greatly diminished.
BHRT Replacement Process
For those living in or around Rochdale, the process of undergoing BHRT is straightforward.
- Contact the Menopause Clinic to arrange a consultation with Deborah Vines, an expert in these treatments.
- You would then make the short journey to our clinic in Heywood, just down the motorway, to have an open and honest discussion about the impact the menopause is having. A blood sample would also be taken, this then sent away for analysis at a specialist lab.
- We receive the results back and contact you to talk through the results and our suggested BHRT plan. Assuming this is agreed, we create the bespoke blend of hormones matched to your needs.
- The prescription is sent to a pharmacy of your choice – the hormones can also be delivered directly to you.
We would also hold follow-up conversations with you to ensure the hormones are having the expected impact; in some cases minor tweaks can be made to further enhance results.
After a year, the process is repeated.
The Hormones in our BHRT Treatments
The hormones in BHRT treatments are created from natural plant oestrogen and are based in a wonderful substance called Diosgenin.
We create bespoke BHRT treatments that are based on you and your body, not on a generalised example of someone of your age. This ensures the hormones work precisely with your body.
The BHRT treatments we provide are easily taken, coming in creams, lozenges and capsules.
