For many women the menopause can be a difficult time and at The Alexandra Hospital, we have the expertise and experience to help you through it.
HRT can be beneficial because it works by replacing oestrogen in the body during the approach to menopause, which is always effective in treating several of the most common menopausal symptoms and can also help to prevent osteoporosis (brittle bones). HRT has been known to be associated with some risks and an individual risk assessment will be carried out and explained.
There are many ways of taking HRT and women will usually be able to be offered a choice as to whether to take it or not and the most appropriate one, should they wish to consider it.
If a woman does not wish to take HRT, or cannot for certain medical reasons, then there are other treatments we can suggest which may ease the different symptoms.
All treatments need to be monitored in order to make sure that they are having the desired effect.
If the symptoms are mild we can advise you on possible ways to control them by changing your diet and lifestyle.
Our expert consultant gynaecologists can advise you about which treatment will suit you best and discuss the benefits and risks taking into account your own individual circumstances
If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.
If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
