HRT Review Questionnaire

In order to provide HRT safely we need to ask you some questions. We would be grateful if you could complete this form when you submit your repeat prescription request. If you are having any problems with your HRT medication or would like to consider alternative options, please speak to one of our trained clinicians.

This questionnaire is to support the review of your HRT. If your menopause symptoms are well managed you may not need an appointment and an HRT review could be documented virtually, please ensure you include your blood pressure reading.

If you still have symptoms and are on less than a 100mcg patch or less than 4 pumps of oestrogel or less than 2mg sandrena then we may look to gradually increase your prescription, stopping at the lowest dose that settles your symptoms, and review you in 8 weeks

What would you like to happen following completion of this questionnaire (please select all that apply)?

Please note it is best practice to ensure you are on a good dose of oestrogen first, we would look to ensure this is the case and check blood tests prior to testosterone prescribing. An appointment will be made as per your preference above with a GP to discuss testosterone. Please confirm you have read the following leaflet and wish to proceed: Testosterone replacement in menopause - British Menopause Society:

*

HRT is not always necessary, and many women find that they can reduce menopausal symptoms through regular exercise; by keeping their weight in a healthy range for their height and reducing alcohol and caffeine. Do you wish to proceed with HRT despite this? *

Risks

To safely prescribe HRT, we need to ensure that you are aware of the risks that may be present with HRT. Please indicate that you are happy to proceed with HRT despite these risks.

You understand that rarely oral oestrogen as part of HRT can cause a clot and the symptoms/signs of a blood clot are calf pain and swelling, sharp chest pains, shortness of breath and coughing up blood and will seek urgent medical attention if these symptoms occur: *
You understand that you should tell a healthcare professional that you are on HRT (if you take oral oestrogen) if you need to have an operation or have a period of prolonged immobilisation e.g. leg in plaster: *
You understand that irregular bleeding is common in the first 3-6 months on HRT but if I have any irregular bleeding that starts after that or persists, I will arrange a review appointment: *

Smear Tests

For information regarding smear tests, please visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/cervical-screening.

Please note if you find smears uncomfortable you may benefit from some additional vaginal oestrogen pessaries/cream and we would be happy to prescribe these to support you.
