How does this treatment work?
Bioidentical hormones are hormones made from a chemical found naturally in plants. They are a precise structural replica of the hormones naturally produced by the body. When you are deficient in a specific hormone or hormones we can prescribe the correct bioidentical hormone to replace it in the form of a cream, tablet, or lozenge.
What happens during my treatment?
Dr Sophie will discuss your treatment in detail with you once blood samples have been taken and analysed. You will take the cream, tablet or lozenge prescribed at home.
Will I feel any pain or side effects?
Occasionally some side effects may be felt. These include headache, tiredness, blurred vision and indigestion, but this will depend on the hormones that are being replaced and your individual condition. This will be discussed with you during initial consultation.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
BHRT is most commonly used to treat middle-aged women and men who are suffering with symptoms of the menopause or andropause. However they can also be used to treat a wide variety of symptoms occurring in people of all ages.
