Treating all stages of menopause at Face Medical Clinic
Every woman is unique, just like her hormones! At Face Medical Clinic, our experienced team led by Deborah Vines can create a bespoke hormone replenishment plan tailored to each patient after a thorough consultation.
The first step when seeking BHRT at Face Medical or The Menopause Clinic will be an in-depth and comprehensive consultation with Deborah Vines which can either be a face to face appointment or by telephone which includes a at home blood sample kit which comes with how to use instructions. This will cover your medical history, lifestyle factors, nutrition and health risks, as well as any other queries or concerns that you may have about the treatment. This will be followed by a health check and a set of blood tests, which assess your hormone and vitamin D levels.
Depending on the results from your health check at the initial consultation, additional tests for women may be recommended, which include: mammogram, ultrasound scan of the uterus, and a DEXA scan for bone density. For men, additional tests can include: chest x-rays, MRI scans, and a DEXA scan for bone density.
If the blood tests and additional tests determine that you could benefit from BHRT, then Deborah will create a bespoke and custom-tailored treatment plan including hormones and supplements.
All bio-identical hormone treatments that are prescribed by Deborah Vines at Face Medical Clinic are bespoke and individually tailored to suit each patient’s needs and requirements. They come in the form of creams, lozenges or capsules, depending on which is most suitable. The bio-identical hormones are 100% identical in chemical structure to those that are found naturally in the human body, but are derived from plants, and are based on a substance known as “Diosgenin”, which comes from yams.
Following your treatment, there will be a two month review with Deborah, which will enable her to assess your progress and make any adjustments to your medication as necessary. There will then be a six-month review, in which Deborah will conduct another full assessment of your treatment, and perform any further testing if required and to determine your progress.
It is a common misconception that hormones are not as important for men as they are for women. Andropause is the male equivalent of menopause and has become more openly discussed in the media in recent years. Men may experience a loss of energy, libido and drive, and may feel a bit lost or start to question aspects of their lives.
At the Face Medical Clinic in Heywood, we can offer our patients bio-identical hormone therapy, which are very beneficial to patients who have a hormone imbalance or have experienced undesired side effects with other hormonal medications, including HRT.
