Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has been used for decades to help women relieve the troublesome symptoms that are often part and parcel of the menopause. However, there are concerns about the side effects associated with the artificial hormones used. That’s why our medical professionals at Courthouse Clinics are pioneering a new approach, based on Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (known as BHRT).
The main advantage with BHRT is that it uses hormones that have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are naturally present in your body. Because they are 100% identical to your own natural hormones, they work seamlessly with your body – delivering the same benefits as synthetic hormone replacement therapy, but with minimal unwanted side effects. It’s a simple but life-changing solution.
What can BHRT help with?
Hormones such as oestrogen, testosterone and progesterone play a vital role in keeping your body and your brain happy. But if they’re unbalanced or out of sync, they can cause all sorts of problems. Millions of women suffer in silence, believing that the symptoms of the menopause are just an inevitable consequence of getting older. But they’re not, and there is plenty of help available.
BHRT can effectively treat a wide range of typical menopausal symptoms including mood swings, depression, PMT, anxiety, hot flushes, poor concentration, disturbed sleep and low libido. It can even help with cosmetics issues too, such as dry and wrinkled skin.
So, how does it work?
The good news is that our BHRT process is very straightforward. The first step involves a private, in-depth consultation with one of our specialist BHRT consultants. This meeting will be used to assess whether you’re suffering from a hormonal imbalance, and to discuss whether BHRT is the right approach for you.
Next we’ll take blood tests to evaluate your individual hormone levels, and determine the optimum BHRT dose needed to rebalance your body. At Courthouse Clinics we offer two non-invasive options – either a pill or a cream – both of each are quick and easy to use. The fourth step involves monitoring progress. We assess and review your BHRT at regular intervals, and adjust your doses as and when necessary. We pride ourselves on delivering and maintaining a bespoke treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Our doctors take the time to listen and take on board all comments and feedback, to ensure your prescription is perfect for you.
