With Prescription Doctor's trusted online pharmacy, you can buy Oestrogel hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for the menopause following a short online consultation with one of our doctors.
Oestrogel is available in a convenient 80g pump which delivers a specific amount of gel with each actuation. If you have had your womb removed in a surgery called a hysterectomy, you can use Oestrogel on its own. However, women who have not had their womb removed will need to take another HRT which contains progestogen to counter the effects of the estradiol found in Oestrogel.
To begin your order, simply fill out our medical form for our doctor to review. If your order is approved before 3pm, Monday to Friday, our UK based GPhC registered pharmacy will dispense and dispatch your item the same day via a next-day discreet delivery service.
The menopause is an inevitable event in life. It is marked by the end of menstruation and signals the end of fertility, meaning you can no longer become pregnant through natural means.
Most women experience the menopause in their 40s and 50s, though premature menopause can occur in women whose ovaries have stopped working (premature ovarian failure) or have been surgically removed (typically removed with the womb during a hysterectomy. The symptoms of the menopause can last for between 2 and 10 years, though most women reach the menopause in 4 years.
If you are unsure whether you are going through the menopause, speak to your doctor.
You can also buy a home menopause testing kit online, such as the SelfCheck Menopause Test, available from Prescription Doctor.
The menopause is caused by a drop-off in the amount of oestrogen levels in women. Oestrogen is a female sex hormone which is produced in the ovaries, and plays a number of roles in the female body.
Importantly, oestrogen can help prevent osteoarthritis in women. A drop of oestrogen levels has been linked to an increase in bone resorption - the process of breaking down bone to release minerals into the blood stream - and an increase in the delay between the breakdown of bone and the formation of new bone. This weakens bone over time, contributing to bone disorders such as osteoarthritis.
This fall of oestrogen in the body causes a number of symptoms including:
For some women, the symptoms may be manageable, while other women may find the symptoms disruptive to their daily life. As such, it's important to speak to your doctor if your symptoms are causing you distress.
Your doctor may be able to prescribe a suitable HRT for you, based on your medical history and considering any other medications you may be taking. You should always speak to your doctor before you buy HRT online to ensure that it is safe for you.
