As we age we experience many physical and emotional changes within our bodies as certain hormone production is reduced. Both the female menopause, and the male andropause, can cause symptoms such as a lack of energy, sweats or hot flushes, mood swings, reduced libido, vaginal complaints for women, difficulty sleeping and issues with bone density or osteoporosis. Both men and women can benefit from a treatment known as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) which is an alternative to the synthetic hormones, used in conventional Hormone Replacement Therapies (HRT). Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as those that occur naturally within our own bodies. They are derived from plant sources. Following a consultation and various tests, your clinician can tell you what the results indicate and prescribe BHRT accordingly. This prescription will be individualised for your body. Hormones must be prescribed, as they are regulated as medicines. It is highly unlikely that anyone considering BHRT would be able to access this free of charge on the National Health Service. Expect to pay around £200 - £600 for the initial consultation, testing and prescriptions and then approximately £100 - £200 per month for the repeat prescription.
