For those seeking a menopause clinic in the north west the outstanding option is clear – the five-star rated Menopause Clinic.
We are local but also have superb expertise – a leading UK clinic that just so happens to be on your doorstep. Located in Bury, we are a short drive or journey by public transport from any part of the north west – and you also only need visit once per year in person. Everything else can be done remotely.
You can be assured of receiving the highest standards of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. With an empathetic and understanding manner, our sole focus is on helping women in menopause and earlier perimenopause.
Other clinics in the north west may provide HRT, and over-the-counter care might become more common, but we treat you as an individual. We listen to you as an individual and provide BHRT, these the hormones that the body accepts far more readily – and an improvement on standard HRT. They have the greatest impact in helping make menopause manageable.
At the Menopause Clinic, the hormone package is prescribed by Deborah Vines, who is 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 is in the north west, easily accessible through the region’s motorways such as the M60, M62 and M66.
The process you would follow can be broken down into just a series of small steps – but small steps that have a profound impact.
Suitability for Menopause Hormone Treatments in North West
Those experiencing menopause or perimenopause are suitable for treatment in most cases – though individual suitability would of course be assessed at consultation.
There is no need to wait for suffering to worsen, as soon as symptoms of menopause or perimenopause are felt – or you think you may be experiencing them – it is worth visiting us for an assessment. Why wait for things to start getting ‘really bad’ as prior to this carefully prescribed BHRT treatments could do so much to stop the menopause ever having the impact it otherwise might.
However, for many north west clients it is the case that they have been experiencing menopause for some time. Worry not, it is not too late to start as the hormones will still do so much to reduce the negative impact of menopause.
The impact of hormone depletion and menopause can be profound and is never negligible. There can be memory loss, loss of libido, headaches and many more negative symptoms. Let’s work together to address those.
The Hormones We Provide in BHRT Treatment
The hormones we prescribe and send out to clients in the north west 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, women can have Oestrogen levels that are 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 home or a north west pharmacist of your choice 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:
- 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. We are, of course, a short drive at most away from any area of Manchester.
- 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.
- 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 Rochdale 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.
