For those seeking a menopause clinic close to Rochdale there is one outstanding option – the five-star rated Menopause Clinic.
We are extremely local to you, based in Bury and so only a short drive from Bury, or a journey via public transport. Just as importantly, we are true experts, providing the highest standards of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Empathetic and understanding, our sole focus is on helping women in menopause and earlier perimenopause.
Other clinics in the north west may provide HRT, and there is even a move promoting over-the-counter help. Instead, we listen to you as an individual and provide BHRT, these the hormones that the body accepts far more readily. They have the greatest impact in helping make menopause manageable.
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 Rochdale
Those experiencing menopause or perimenopause would usually, in most cases, be suitable for our treatment.
There is no need for anyone to wait for suffering to worsen, as soon as anyone experiences what they believe to be the first symptoms it can be worth having an assessment. Why wait for things to feel ‘really bad’ when carefully prescribed BHRT treatments could do so much to stop the menopause ever having the impact it otherwise might.
Equally, many clients we see from Rochdale and beyond have gone through menopause for a period of time – 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 can be profound – there can be memory loss, loss of libido, headaches and many more negative 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 Rochdale 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:
- 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.
