Also the premise on which prescribing compounded BHRT (cBHRT) is based in principle ie that blood (or saliva) tests are needed in order to determine oestrogen levels in order to individualise the dose according to the woman's requirements ? is false. Research has shown that symptoms do not correlate with absolute oestrogen levels.

Im not sure where you got that from. Yes bloods are asked for at the first appointment to get an idea of the patients sex hormone ratios (more than the amounts), but they explain its a snapshot and prescribe by symptoms. They then alter dosage according to how they respond.

Oestrogen is very rarely taken into consideration due to the wild fluctuations, my 2 clinics were more interested in FSH, LH, progesterone on Day 21 (as its on a downward trajectory the closer you get to menopause) and testosterone.
