Located just a short drive from Oldham, is one of the UK’s leading menopause clinics.
We are local but also have superb expertise with five-star reviews and years of experience. We are 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 Oldham – and you also only need to visit us once a year, as the rest of our conversations and follow-ups can be remote.
The highest standards of care are assured, and this is care and treatment specific to your needs, rather than a general set of hormones suitable for someone ‘like you’. We prescribe bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – BHRT – this the form of HRT that is most effective. As the name implies, the hormones are designed to be replicas of the ones that are depleted, rather than synthetic recreations that the body accepts less readily.
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 a specific blend of hormones that are perfect for your needs. We can help women both in the menopause and earlier perimenopause.
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 and proximity to Oldham. Clients come to look forward to speaking to us as we do so much to remove the negative feelings of menopause.
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 usually suitable for treatment – though individual suitability would be assessed at consultation.
As soon as you think you are experiencing the first signs of perimenopause or menopause it is well worth booking an appointment – why wait for things to get ‘really bad’? With the right blend of hormones it might be that the entire impact of menopause is greatly reduced, the potential negative side effects barely noticeable when otherwise they might be life-limiting.
Equally, it is never too late. If you are experiencing the side effects of menopause and haven’t yet sought help, please do get in touch., You don’t have to carry on suffering in silence, in just a short space of time it is likely we can help you feel so much better.
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 Oldham 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.
