Creating a hormone blend that is perfectly matched to your need, the Menopause Clinic is the leading centre for hormone replacement therapy in Rochdale.
Led by the expert care of Deborah Vines we are a clinic that specialises in menopause and the earlier perimenopause state.
These are times in a person’s life when changes to the balance of hormones can have a huge, and often negative impact. However, there is no need to suffer in silence as so much can be done to address this through the correct administering of hormones.
We go beyond standard hormone replacement, or HRT by offering bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, this ensuring that the body will accept the hormones and maximum benefit will be delivered.
The body treats them as a natural product, not a synthetic approximation.
You may see it as the difference between a perfect diet suited to you against a vitamin tablet. The vitamin tablet is of some limited benefit, but it is not the whole package, it is not the natural goodness the body craves.
Bioidentical hormone replacement – available in Rochdale through our clinic – is this natural solution.
Hormone Replacement Expertise
The menopause clinic is run by Deborah Vines, a true expert in bioidentical hormones. She is the go-to person not just for Rochdale but also the north west. Located in Heywood we are just a few miles from Rochdale and easily accessible whether by public transport or driving.
Deborah is trained in the field of BHRT treatments and her hormones are delivered via prescription.
At an initial consultation, you would talk to Deborah and also have a pain-0free blood sample taken. This sample is then sent away for analysis at a superb laboratory facility, this analysing your levels of hormone.
From this, a bespoke package of BHRT hormones can be created – these suited to you and designed for the precise stage you are at. This far better than an approximation. – after all no two people are the same.
Within just a few days, your hormones will be ready – they can be collected from a local pharmacy or even sent to you direct;y.
The impact will be near-immediate, you will feel the benefits of having more energy, perhaps issues such as headaches, loss of libido and more fading into the past.
Follow-up appointments would be held, these typically over Zoom. This ensures that the hormones blend is producing the benefits expected, but also allows for subtle tweaks to be made. After a year, you would simply repeat the process, having a new consultation with Deborah, this is necessary as over the course of a year your body and hormone blend will, of course, have changed a little. This can be tracked through the taking of a new sample.
Benefits of BHRT in Rochdale
The impact of menopause and perimenopause varies greatly from individual to individual. However, too often people suffer in silence, whether this is from the first stages of perimenopause through to the full menopause.
However, a simple course of BHRT can do so much to address all the symptoms.
It is never too early to seek a consultation, why wait for things to ‘get worse’. The hormones can be just as suited to the peri stage as for full menopause.
Equally, if you are experiencing later stages of the menopause, why continue to feel the full force? Contact Deborah today and then a much-improved standard of living could be felt inside just a week or two.
Hormone replacement therapy of the past delivered some of these benefits, but it was not fully targeted and the body always ran the risk of struggling to feel the full benefit from so synthetic a product.
BHRT is a far more modern approach, one that is kinder to the body and tailored to the individual, not just assuming all women of a certain age are roughly equal.
BHRT vs Over the Counter
In the UK, there are moves to have hormone treatment available over the counter.
That treatments become more accessible to all is undeniably positive, but it should not be thought that an over-the-counter option is necessarily equal to a prescribed solution.
This is true of all medical concerns – the general treatments may have an impact, they may make things better, but perhaps not as good as they could be.
This is why BHRT treatments should be prioritised. Is it good enough for menopause to be ‘not quite as bad’? Surely it is better for it to be as good as is possible, for the impact to be reduced to a level whereby it has the least possible negative impact on someone’s life.
A short trip for a consultation and one sample taken creates that level of difference.
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 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.
