Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Women

Your body’s hormones regulate most of your basic bodily functions. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. So, when your hormones are out of balance it can have a big impact on your health and feeling of well-being. Bioidentical hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly used in treatment.

Bioidentical hormones produced by our FDA-approved compounding pharmacies have the exact same chemical structure as naturally occurring human hormones. Consequently, your body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own. BHRT may be useful for relieving the symptoms of a variety of conditions common among women of all ages, including:

  • Menopause

  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

  • Irregular menstrual cycle

  • Moodiness

  • Hot flashes

  • Infertility

  • Post-partum depression

  • Decreased libido

  • Weight gain

  • Endometriosis

  • Fibrocystic breasts

  • Vaginal Dryness

  • Painful sexual intercourse

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Night sweats
