Find the right menopause treatment for you

Falling oestrogen in menopause is the main cause of symptoms, that’s why replacing oestrogen with Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) or vaginal oestrogen has been shown to relieve symptoms quickly & effectively.

How it works

Complete your free online consultation

Answer a series of questions about your menopause symptoms, lifestyle and medical history, so we can assess whether HRT is an option for you and what your personal benefits and risks are for taking HRT.

Choose your treatment or book a doctor consultation

Eligible for HRT? Order your recommended treatment through Alva and our partner pharmacy. If you still have questions about HRT, you can also schedule a video consultation with one of our partner GPs.

Get treatment delivered to your door

Once you’ve ordered your treatment, it’ll arrive on your doorstep 2-3 days later. The first prescription is always three months. We’ll check in with you after three months, at your free medication review, to see how it’s going and if your dose needs adjusting.
