Hormone Replacement Therapy

During the perimenopausal and menopausal period of life, women’s bodies produce less and less oestrogen and progestogen. The majority of women will seek new forms of re-introducing these hormones into the body and there are many effective ways of doing this under the guidance of an experienced medical professional who specialises in this area.

Hormonal Replacement Therapy is offered in various different forms including tablets, skin patches, oestrogen gel, implants, vaginal oestrogen and many more regimes which can be designed bespoke to each individuals response to treatment and requirements. Our Private GP's Dr Peck and Dr Josson McConnell can advise on the best course of treatment for you. Should they advise on an implant, they will refer you to Mr Joe Onwude, FACEmed Consultant Gynaecologist. Mr Onwude specialises in the placement of implants for HRT. The implant is placed under the skin in the upper buttocks and releases hormones at a steady consistent rate over the course of 3-5 months. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and take approximately 5 minutes. It is a walk-in walk-out procedure and you can drive yourself to and from the clinic at ease although we always advise where possible that you bring a family member or friend along with you. The implant does not require removal it completely absorbs over time. For more information on the Hormone Replacement Implant click here.
