The north west’s leading HRT Clinic is available for those in Lancashire at the five-star rated Menopause Clinic.
Our clinic has superb reviews and we are entrusted by the regulators – rated as good in every category in the Care Quality Commission report.
HRT therapy and HRT clinics can cover a wide range of treatments, however specialise through the experience and expertise of practitioner Deborah Vines. We focus on HRT and the enhanced alternative BHRT – for menopause and perimenopause.
It is in menopause that the depletion of hormones can have so extreme an impact. By tailoring the hormone blend to you as an individual we help to minimise the impact of this time of life and ensure you carry on feeling your very best.
This goes a stage beyond HRT – hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses hormones which are identical to those produced in your body, rather than being the approximations of more standard HRT. This ensures they are accepted more readily and have greater benefit.
Our clinic is in Heywood and you need only come once per year. After an initial consultation and the taking of a blood sample, all follow-ups can be over the phone, Zoom or similar,
Our full process for matching you with the BHRT treatments that can have a profound impact on your life is described below.
At the Menopause Clinic, the hormone package is prescribed by a trained expert in these treatments – Deborah Vines.
Our Four-Step BHRT Treatment Process
The four stages to your personalised Biochemical Hormone Replacement Therapy package are:
- Contact the Menopause Clinic to arrange a consultation with BHRT treatment specialist Deborah Vines.
- A consultation of around 45-minutes will be held, this will also look into your medical history. At this consultation, a blood sample will be taken and sent away for analysis to assess your current hormone levels.
- Test results are returned – often within two days – and we would then call you to discuss the results and also outline our suggested treatment plan and prescription.
- The prescription will be sent to yourlocal pharmacy, who will post you the medication. Next day delivery is possible.
Six weeks later, we would phone you to discuss how you are feeling – in some rare cases we would then tweak the prescription a little to maximise beneficial impact.
A second prescription is then sent to the pharmacy, this covering the next four-month period.
At the six-month stage, a phone consultation is held with Deborah Vines, this is another chance to discuss how you are feeling and for us to assess the positive impact of the BHRT treatment.
Two more repeat prescriptions are then possible, these would last up to six months and so the whole process covers a year’s worth of treatment.
At this stage, the whole process would repeat as a face-to-face prescription must be held at least once a year.
Suitability for HRT in Lancs
Many people are suitable for HRT, but we specialise in those who are experiencing menopause or perimenopause.
If you fall into this category, even if this is the very earliest stages of perimenopause then you are likely to benefit from BHRT.
There is no need to wait for suffering to get bad, replacing lost hormones is of immediate benefit as soon as the depletion begins to occur. Why wait until energy is lower, libido lost and other symptoms have developed, surely the best menopause is one you barely notice.
Equally, if you have felt the impact of menopause for an extended length of time that does not mean it is too late to seek help. Why continue to suffer when a simple course of tailored hormones can have so profound an impact?
The Hormones We Provide in BHRT Treatment
Our hormones are based on a substance known as ‘Diosgenin’ and made from natural plant oestrogen.
We help to rectify any reduction in oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Oestrogen levels can be almost entirely depleted by the age of 40, while progesterone can also be very low and testosterone at around half its level of earlier life.
Delivered as creams, lozenges and capsules, our hormones are carefully balanced for your specific needs.
After all, everyone who sees us is an individual – you cannot group clients together based on age or other criteria as everyone experiences their own menopause.
This is why the move to make over the counter treatments, without any analysis is perhaps a worry – these will not be tailored to anyone as an individual, and so the hormone blend might not have the positive impact hoped for.
