For many women, the idea of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be daunting. Aside from the widely publicised risks and benefits of HRT, the vast amount of treatment options for the delivery of HRT alone is mind boggling which is why the first and most important step you take is finding the right specialist. General Practitioners are normally the first point of call.
The GP will perform the necessary blood tests to determine your hormone levels and advise on the best course of action for you which can be HRT by tablet form, skin patches, oestrogen gel and implant. In cases whereby HRT implant placement is the preferred option, the patient will be referred to a specialist. FACEmed Consultant Gynaecologist Mr Joe Onwude is a specialist in hormone replacement implants and for a long time has worked alongside the Private GP service treating their patients.
