Frequently Asked Questions
Every patient is individual when considering bioidentical hormone therapy and each plan is bespoke to your needs. During your initial consultation we undertake a thorough medical history and explore symptoms you may be experiencing. We perform investigations such as blood tests or in some cases scans or imaging. The blood tests provide us with your hormone profile. If the hormone levels are consistent with the symptom experienced then we discuss options. The treatment plan always includes regular follow ups and ongoing monitoring. We also discuss lifestyle changes that may help your symptoms.
Bioidentical hormones have numerous benefits that include:
- improvement in menopausal symptoms
- improvement in perimenopausal symptoms
- reduce night sweats or flushing
- improved energy levels
- improvement in libido
- improve skin quality
- improve concentration and memory
- improve bone density
The therapy is in the form of creams applied to the skin. This method will bypass the liver and gets absorbed into blood stream directly reducing side effects such as blood clots or thromboembolic events. Some hormones are given in tablet or capsule form.
