HRT is available in Manchester through the Menopause Clinic – our hormones are specifically matched to your needs and delivered through prescription.
It is worth noting that while HRT – hormone replacement therapy – is a broad term, we look to specialise.
We focus on hormone replacement for menopause and perimenopause, this a time of life when hormone replacement is likely to be of profound benefit. Our blend of hormones, matched to your needs and the depletion you are experiencing, will minimise the negative impacts of menopause.
Our service provides bioidentical hormone replacement, a stage above standard HRT. While HRT has benefits, bioidentical hormones are made to be exact matches of the hormones your body produces. The body accepts them much more readily and they have far more impact. You might compare it to eating a good diet vs taking vitamin tablets. The tablets are of benefit, but they will never match that perfect diet.
Hormone Replacement Expertise
Our clinic, just a short drive from Manchester, is run by Deborah Vines, a true expert in bioidentical HRT. For many, she is the go-to person in Manchester and the northwest for advice on hormone replacement.
Deborah is a trained expert. Through her knowledge, and by utilising testing facilities at a leading lab to analyse your sample, she can create the blend of hormones that will put right the depletion you are experiencing.
The process starts with a detailed consultation, this just a few minutes drive from the centre of Manchester.
This consultation is vital. While there may be some broad similarities between women going through menopause or perimenopause, these are just that – broad similarities. Every woman is different, the rate of change very different, so too the impact of menopause.
Deborah understands that everyone is unique and so they need their own unique prescription.
At the consultation, a small blood sample would be taken and this then sent for laboratory analysis. Deborah would also chat to you about the impact menopause is having, as well as getting a feel for your lifestyle, diet and more. As long as you are open and honest, the process will deliver hormones that get you feeling back to your very best.
This process is in-depth, and yet also expedited, the analysis typically back inside a couple of days and, subject to patient agreement, the hormones are then sent soon after.
Your hormones can be delivered either to a local pharmacy of your choosing, or they can even be delivered to your door.
The process really is that easy. There are then follow-up appointments over the phone or Zoom to ensure that the hormones are having the desired impact. In rare cases, a minor tweak to the prescription can be made as required.
Then, after a year, you repeat the process with a new consultation – this ensures that a new sample is taken and the hormones adjusted as required, after all, your body will have changed over the preceding 12 months.
Benefits of HRT in Manchester
Hormone depletion or changes to hormone levels have a huge, and typically negative, impact.
Energy and drive can be greatly reduced, so too libido and motivation. A whole list of negative symptoms could be described but overall, it is accurate to say that changes to hormone levels leave people feeling diminished, less than themselves.
All too often, people suffer in silence, perhaps accepting that because menopause is a natural stage of life it is simply something to be lived through.
It does not have to be this way, a simple consultation can lead to a prescription for HRT that will change your life, that will make so many of the negative symptoms simply vanish.
For those who are just experiencing the very first signs of perimenopause, committing to HRT early can mean that menopause never has a major impact on your life.
For those who are already into full menopause, just because you have suffered to date does not mean you need to continue to do so. Make the call today that could improve your quality of life`
Bioidentical hormone replacement does as the name implies, it helps to replace the hormones that are depleted, or disappear entirely during menopause.
Hormone replacement is not new, but BHRT takes it a large step further, using hormones that are perfectly in tune with your body, the hormones it would produce naturally, rather than using synthetic approximations. This ensures the body accepts them more readily and that they have a more positive impact.
BHRT Replacement Process
For those living in or around Manchester, 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.
