Before the appointment

Before your appointment you will be sent an initial questionnaire. Please fill this out as comprehensively as possible and return along with any relevant test results from within the last 2 years in advance of your appointment.

Please note that tests are charged separately from your consultation fee.

Further Information

 

Bioidentical hormones are precise duplicates of the body’s own hormones. Taking these hormones is adding something that the body already recognises and knows how to metabolise. Conversely, conventional HRT usually includes hormone-like drugs that are not identical in structure do the body’s own, such as conjugated equine oestrogens or synthetic progestogens. As well as binding to hormone receptors, these hormone-like drugs may bind to other receptors causing unwanted side effects.

There is plenty of peer-reviewed scientific research that demonstrates a safer risk profile for bioidentical hormones than conventional hormone-like drugs. Links to some of these studies can be found under the ‘Research’ section .
