WHAT IS BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?
As we age, it is inevitable that we will experience a decline in hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. This causes many of the symptoms that we associate with getting older such as menopausal symptoms and losing our “get up and go” By rebalancing these hormones with hormones that are identical to those naturally produced by our bodies we can not only restore your “joie de vivre” but can also have a wide range of significant health benefits.

WHAT HAPPENS AT MY CONSULTATION?
Initial consultation - Dr Sam will take a comprehensive history which will help her understand your concerns and whether or not a hormonal imbalance is likely to be part of the problem. Blood/other tests will be organised as appropriate.
1 week: follow-up (15-30 mins) - You will be contacted (usually by email) with a review of your test results, and if recommended, receive a personalised plan of prescription medicine devised specifically for you. You will be advised how to order this. This is complimentary and Dr Sam will encourage you to contact her if you have any concerns or questions.
2 months: follow-up (30 mins) - Dr Sam will review your progress at the clinic and following further blood tests make any appropriate adjustments to your prescribed medication.
3 months later: review (15-30 mins) - Dr Sam will review your progress and provide you with repeat prescriptions where necessary. Depending on your symptoms, results of blood tests and changes in your prescription you may need another review within 3 months.
6 months: follow-up (30 mins) - This follow-up will entail a full review of progress, where further tests may be required and prescriptions will be issued as necessary.
Every 6 months thereafter: ongoing reviews (30 mins) - You will be required to have a review every six months while undergoing treatment.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT PLAN?
Each treatment plan is for up to 6 months. So long as you continue to benefit from having BIHRT and attend for regular review then Dr Sam will continue to prescribe this medication for you.
