Prescription team: HRT 3 month review

To ensure your medication is prescribed safely and you are aware of all this information we review your prescription after 3 months of starting. On completion of this reviews will be 12 monthly unless you have any issues, in which case you should contact us via this form.  

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment to relieve symptoms of the menopause. It replaces hormones that are at a lower level as you approach the menopause.

The main benefit of HRT is that it can help relieve most of the menopausal symptoms, including: hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness and reduced sex drive.

Many of these symptoms pass after a few years, but they can be unpleasant and taking HRT can offer relief for many women.

Whilst the benefits of HRT often outweigh the risks, some types of HRT can increase your risk of breast cancer and blood clots. It is important to remain vigilant for signs of breast cancer & we encourage you to attend breast screening when invited

If your review is now due (3 month since starting) please complete the following form and fill in as much information as possible. Some of this information will already be included in your medical records but this is a good opportunity to update any changes.
