Here are the benefits of HRT:

  • A significant reduction in heart disease and stroke (the most common cause of death in women post menopause)
  • It reduces and often stops hot flushes and night sweats
  • Reduces insomnia
  • Reduces weight gain
  • Improves mood disorders such as depression, irritability or anxiety
  • Improves libido
  • Improves vaginal dryness and urinary problems including incontinence
  • Helps to maintain the collagen in the skin
  • Reduces the loss of bone and invertebral discs
  • Reduces aching joints and muscles
  • Helps with migraine
  • Helps with heavy or irregular periods
  • Stimulates muscle repair with better mobility and power
  • Helps with skin related issues like dryness, itchiness or tenderness
  • Prevents osteoporosis
  • Reduces accelerated furring of the arteries
  • There is a possible reduction in Alzheimer’s disease
  • It reduces the risk of colon cancer

Current thinking is that the risks connected with HRT treatment are minimal and the benefits are significant. 

Why put up with all this when you don't have to?  There is now no need to just get on with it - time to feel your old self again!

Please be advised that this Practice only prescribes body identical BHRT or rBHRT because it is regulated, tested and consistent in its dosage unlike cBHRT.  For more information on this please read this blog post


Patient Testimonial

"When I came to you in 2016 I was at my wits end having got nowhere with my GP.


Even as recently as early 2020 I was called in to the doctors’ surgery where they tried to persuade me to stop taking HRT in light of recent studies. When I said I did not want to stop taking it I was told I might have to sign a form saying I was aware of the risks involved. Since Covid, however, this seems to have been dropped. (I recall emailing you at the time and you were reassuring and supportive about me continuing to take HRT).


I must thank you again because without your advice and recommendations I dread to think where I would be today. I shared my story with friends, some of whom then went to their own GPs to request HRT. Like Davina, I am now happy to shout about my menopause from the rooftops!!
