Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (‘BHRT’) is natural hormone replacement therapy tailored for each individual. Whether you’re going through peri-menopause; pre-menopause, menopause or andropause, we know every patient is different and presents a unique set of symptoms and hormone levels that warrant a customised bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. The amount and dosage (capsule, cream, lozenge) of each therapy is dependent on many factors. These factors must be properly reviewed prior to commencing or recommending treatment.
Our bio-Identical hormones are 100% Identical in chemical structure to those that are found in the human body and are produced from natural products rather than petrochemicals.
Patients requesting BHRT undergo a series of tests to check the level of hormones in each individual so that a suitable hormone or suite of hormones can be recommended. The doctor will then prescribe Bio-Identical hormones suitable for each individual.
Patients should be aware that whilst Bio identical hormones have been prescribed for many years; the major medical institutions in the UK do not support their use. These bodies include the Nice Guidelines, the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. Please note that our Doctors here are happy to answer any queries that you have or concerns regarding safety of these or any other medications.
If you would like a consultation for BHRT please ring the practice and ask to book a 45 minute appointment with Dr Piper.
