Navigating through menopause can be tough, however BioID Health is here to help!
Actively leading the fight against menopause, BioID Health has created a treatment using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) that is tailor-made to your individual needs; made to alleviate uncomfortable symptoms and improve quality of life.
What is Menopause?
Menopause occurs 12 months after a woman’s last period. During this time, your body is going through some very big changes. It is a point in life where your body is no longer ovulating and is no longer producing high levels of oestrogen and progesterone.
Throughout menopause, you will lose around 30% of oestrogen, and a huge 70% of progesterone; resulting in hormonal imbalances. This imbalance unfortunately results in some very unpleasant side effects, including hair thinning, irritability, and insomnia.
What are the symptoms of Menopause?
Symptoms of menopause can vary greatly from person to person. Ranging from mild to severe, some individuals will only have a few minor symptoms, while others will have several symptoms that have a significant impact on their quality of life.
There are a variety of symptoms to look out for that indicates your body may be going through the change. These can include:
It is quite common for symptoms to last for approximately four years after a woman’s last period. However, according to the NHS, one out of every ten women suffers with them for up to 12 years.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
Unlike standard HRT, which is derived from synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) is created from plant sources that are similar to the hormones your body naturally creates. BHRT – the treatment we use here at BioID Health – mimics natural hormone production in the body to counteract hormonal imbalance and alleviate those not-so-subtle symptoms of Menopause.
How does BHRT work?
Completely unique to you, and your body, bioidentical hormone therapy works by mimicking the production of your natural hormones to replenish your individual deficiencies. Hormones are powerful chemical messengers in the body that help regulate our daily functions, including mental and physical wellbeing, sleep patterns, and even sex drive.
Following a full assessment by a doctor and a blood/ saliva test, you will be prescribed tailored treatments and a plan to simply replenish the specific hormones you are deficient in and restore the to its optimum performance.
Bioidentical hormones are a real breakthrough in the treatment of menopause for both men and women. Prescriptions are unique to your individual needs and are designed to help your body cope with the changes, alleviating many of those uncomfortable and difficult symptoms.

What do our patients say?
Hear what one of our patients had to say about us:
Julie Green commented: “I suffered from menopause symptoms for a few years, including irritability, hot flushes, joint pain, and memory loss, to mention a few. I didn’t want to use HRT because I don’t believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution.
Dr. Kinsella saw me for a consultation, and following a simple blood test, he was able to figure out what I was missing. For the past three months, I’ve been taking a combination of oestrogen gel, progesterone, and vitamin D tablets, and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my overall happiness and well-being; even my hot flushes are less frequent.
Dr. Kinsella and his colleagues are still on hand, keeping a careful eye on me and conducting regular blood tests to check my levels. I’m back to my old self, and I owe it to the team to thank them.”
