Oestrogen and Progesterone Replacement Therapy London (BHRT for Menopause)
These are the female sex hormones and are commonly replaced after menopause. What is normally given by your GP is a synthetic version of these hormones which can cause of myriad of side effects over the long-term including breast cancer. What we use in this clinic is bio-identical, meaning your body recognises the hormones as self and hence you do not get the side effects associated with the synthetic hormones. We replace it for the benefits that oestrogen and progesterone can provide to the human body, it slows down ageing of the bones, the brain, the blood vessels, your skin, libido, your muscles and more.
This treatment is advisable for post menopause and for those who have pre-mature ovarian failure. Progesterone only therapy is also available for post-natal depression and severe pre-menstrual syndrome.
