Frequently asked questions

We’re here to clear the air

Essentially, Menopause is the period in a woman’s life when her reproductive system begins to wind down. It’s generally split into three stages. Perimenopause is the initial stage, characterized by intermittent symptoms, gradually increasing in frequency On average, Perimenopause is upon us around age 45, announcing its intentions with irregular periods, hot flashes, memory loss, unpredictable emotions and moods, and a drop in fertility. The second stage, Menopause, starts 12 months after your last period. And while you’d think that this marks the beginning of the end for your symptoms, it’s actually more like the beginning of the middle. Because, in a fun biological twist, despite the lack of periods, the rest of your symptoms will carry on regardless. In Canada, Menopause starts at around age 51 and can go on for more than a decade. No, you read that right. Ten. Actual. Years. Post-Menopause is the third and final stage of your hormonal adjustment. Generally, you’ll be around 60-ish when it’s finally over, but for some women, they’re well into their late 60s before the hormones finally relent. Menopause is one of the biggest physical events you’ll experience, but there are ways to minimize its effects.

At its core, Menopause is a hormone imbalance. As our ovaries wind down, we produce less Estrogen and Progesterone. And it’s this drop in hormones that leads to the laundry list of Menopause symptoms.
As with many hormone imbalances, replacing or rebalancing your individual hormone levels can transform your symptoms.
In the case of Menopause, taking replacement estrogen and progesterone, also known as HRT, persuades your body to keep working as it was before your symptoms kicked in. They essentially smooth that transitional period, taking your Menopause from nightmare to normal life in just a few weeks.
Science&Humans bHRT Menopause program takes a cutting-edge approach to hormone replacement. We use bHRT, or bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, a plant-based, natural alternative to synthetic hormones. Our bHRT is also vegan and suitable for anyone eligible for HRT

Menopause symptoms can be as individual as the patient, but often include
Irregular periods No periods Brain fog Memory loss Hot flashes Night sweats Joint/Muscle pain Loss of libido Chills Exhaustion Sleep issues Mood swings Weight gain Thinning hair Loss of bone density Slow metabolism Dry skin Palpitations
If you recognize any of these symptoms, you could be living through Menopause. That’s where our industry-leading blood panel comes in.

Our extensive blood panel looks at 20+ health and hormone markers, including
Progesterone helps keep your periods regular, and is also involved in ovulation
Prolactin increases the level of Luteinizing Hormone
Estradiolhelps develop and maintain your reproductive system
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) stimulates your Thyroid into T3 and T4 production.
T3 and T4 control a huge range of bodily processes. Low levels can indicate an issue
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) stimulates egg production along with ovulation
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) regulates your menstrual cycle and triggers ovulation
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) stimulates your Thyroid into T3 and T4 production.
T3 and T4 control a huge range of bodily processes. Low levels can indicate an issue
Creatinine levels measures how well your kidneys are working
ALT high levels in your blood could indicate a liver issue
Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) can point to liver damage
B12 Helps the development of blood, nerve, and brain cells, measuring the levels can show if there’s a deficiency

Health Assessment

Filling in our online health assessment is the first step. Once complete, we’ll send you a referral for the Menopause blood work panel. Getting your sample back to us as soon as possible is vital. We can’t schedule your initial virtual consultation with a Science&Humans clinician until the blood work is complete.

Personalized, individual healthcare plan

Once your blood results have been analyzed, you’ll have an in-depth video consultation with a licensed Science&Humans clinician.
They’ll spend time getting to know you as an individual, explain your results and what they show, and recommend a personalized treatment plan, specific to your needs.

Treatment

Your personalized medication will ship directly to your door every 3 months, for free, through one of our licensed partner pharmacies. It’s a no-fuss, all-around approach to your healthcare.

Quarterly follow-ups

There’ll be a virtual follow-up consultation with one of our providers every 3 months. We use these regular checks to track your ongoing progress and make any necessary tweaks to your treatment.
This system ensures continued, relevant care, tailored specifically to keep your medication working hard for you.

Is this legal?

Absolutely and unequivocally. Science&Humans only works with the best Canadian licensed clinicians and pharmacies. All of whom are legally able to treat and work with you.
All our treatments are prescribed directly to the patient and all prescriptions are based solely on medical necessity. That necessity is determined by experienced, field-leading clinicians and based on our extensive blood work and evidence-based ethos.

What does my Science&Humans subscription include?

Your Science&Humans Menopause therapy subscription includes a 3-month supply of your prescription treatment, and access to your own specialist clinician, as well as quarterly follow-ups.

What medication will I receive with my prescription?

Your prescription will include your individual combination of Menopause therapy, including mood and symptom management. The personalized treatment, including your specific dosage, will be determined by your Science&Humans clinician during your initial virtual consultation. Menopause treatment is prescribed solely at the discretion of the clinician, based on an extensive analysis of your blood results and symptoms.

Are the blood work and consultation fees refundable?

If you’ve already been issued a blood work requisition, the $50 is non-refundable. If you’ve already had your consultation and a prescription was offered, the consultation fee is non refundable. However, if during the initial virtual consultation, both you and the clinician decide that bHRT or non bHRT treatments are not the right option for you, we’ll absolutely refund the cost of the appointment.

When will the blood work requisition form be sent to me?

First-time blood work requisitions are sent within 24 hours of checkout. Follow up blood work requisitions are sent 70 days from the shipment of medication.

When is payment deducted?

Once you’ve qualified as eligible to receive bHRT therapy, payment will be deducted for your initial virtual consultation. Payment for follow-ups and blood work will be deducted every 70 days. This means we can have everything in place for your next set of appointments.

I’m already taking prescription bHRT. How do I switch my care to Science&Humans?

It couldn’t be simpler. Start by checking out for Menopause for $50. You’ll need to complete the blood work, as usual, so we can see where you’re at, levels-wise. Make sure you send us a photo of your current prescription, clearly showing the dosage. This will allow the clinician to know what you are on. Send images to support@scienceandhumans.com From there, we’ll arrange your consultation and once you’re all set up, that’s it!
