Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment for pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS), peri-menopause, menopause and andropause. It uses hormones which have the same chemical structure as the naturally occurring hormones in your body. This way, your body doesn’t recognise the hormones as ‘foreign’ , unlike some of the synthetic hormones offered on the NHS. By being 100% identical, they work in exactly the same way as your own hormones and deliver the same benefits with minimal adverse side effects.
The hormones oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone are vital for health and wellbeing and can have a significant impact on your quality of life if they become imbalanced. Women are commonly affected by hormonal fluctuations during their menstrual cycle and during the menopause. Men may also experience age-related decline in their testosterone level which can be accelerated by certain conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. BHRT is aimed at limiting the effects of these changes by helping you reset the balance.
Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS): symptoms experienced before your period, which then resolve when you get your period.
Peri-menopause: the transition phase to the menopause which can last for a number of years.
Menopause: defined as complete absence of period for 12 months of more.
Andropause in men: a decline in testosterone (“male menopause”).
