Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Menopause Testing

Treatment and testing for menopause symptoms

Hormone Replacement Therapy, or HRT for short, is a form of treatment available to women who are experiencing menopause-related symptoms. As you approach menopause, certain hormone levels may decrease, and so HRT can be used to return these levels back to normal.

If you mainly have genital symptoms such as vaginal dryness or bladder symptoms, you may choose to try a topical (vaginal) HRT treatment, also known as vaginal oestrogen cream or vaginal oestrogen tablets. However, if you have other symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes or sweats, you may want to consider HRT tablets or patches that work on the entire body. 

Initiating treatment – you can order topical HRT (Vaginal) treatment for the first time with Alpha XR Online Doctor even if you have never used it before. Complete a short online assessment and your online doctor will prescribe a treatment that is right for you.

Reordering treatment – you can reorder your current topical (vaginal) or HRT tablets/patches with Alpha XR Online Doctor. Complete a short online assessment and your online doctor will prescribe your treatment if it's still right for you.

Testing for the menopause – if you’d like to check whether you are menopausal and might be ready for HRT, you can order a home test kit.
