Menopause Clinic Bolton

For anyone experiencing symptoms of the menopause or perimenopause, there is a leading clinic for those in Bolton – the five-star rated Menopause Clinic.

We are a leading clinic that is based close to you, located in Bury and so just a short motorway trip away, or journey via public transport.

However, our reputation is that we are among the best nationally, not just in or around Bolton. We provide the highest standards of care and provide hormones that are a perfect match for any woman’s needs, regardless of her stage of menopause. We know that everyone is an individual, and menopause, while having commonalities, is different for each and every patient.

We are always empathetic and understanding, our sole focus is on helping women navigate menopause and for it to have as little negative impact as possible.

We work by providing fully tailored bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, this is an upgrade on the standard HRT you may well have heard of.

HRT certainly has an impact, but bioidentical replacement is a natural version of the hormones rather than a synthetic substitute and so the body will not reject the hormones. In simple terms, it might be seen as the difference between a healthy, perfectly balanced diet and a diet augmented by tablets. You can’t beat nature.

At the Menopause Clinic, the hormone package is prescribed by Deborah Vines, a trained expert in these treatments.

For this bespoke treatment, you need only visit the clinic once per year – and that should not be too taxing given our location close to Rochdale!

Our full process for matching you with the BHRT treatments that can have a profound impact on your life is described below.

Suitability for Menopause Hormone Treatments in Bolton

Most women who are experiencing menopause or the earlier perimenopause will be suitable for our BHRT treatments.

This is true for those at the very earliest stages, there is no need to wait for things to get worse – as soon as you have a sense that you have symptoms, it is worth contacting us.

However, if you have been dealing with menopause for some time that does not mean it is too late, relief can be had at any time.

Suitability would be assessed at a consultation, and through the taking of a quick blood sample.

What the treatments can do is mitigate the natural changes that occur during menopause, a time when hormone depletion can lead to stress, loss of libido, headaches and many more symptoms. 


The Hormones We Provide in BHRT Treatment

The hormones we prescribe are based on ‘Diosgenin’ a natural substance made from natural plant oestrogen.

We help to rectify any reduction in oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. By the age of 40, Oestrogen levels can be almost entirely depleted, while progesterone can also be very low and testosterone at around half its level of earlier life.

The hormones, which are delivered to your Bolton home or pharmacist as creams, lozenges and capsules, are carefully balanced to your specific needs.

After all, everyone who sees us is an individual – everyone experiences their own menopause.

Our Four-Step BHRT Treatment Process

The four stages to follow for your personalised Biochemical Hormone Replacement Therapy package are:

  1. Contact the Menopause Clinic to arrange a consultation with BHRT treatment specialist Deborah Vines.
  2. 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. We are, of course, a short drive at most away from any area of Manchester.
  3. Test results are returned – often inside two days – and we would then call you to discuss the results and also outline our suggested treatment plan and prescription.
  4. The prescription will be sent to your local pharmacy, who will post you the medication or you can walk of course. 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 Bolton pharmacy, this for 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.
