Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy


Hormone levels change as we age, which may cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms in both men and women. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) replenishes the hormones your body needs to function. Patients experiencing the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, or andropause (male menopause) can benefit from BHRT. Symptoms may include fatigue, loss of libido, mood and memory dysfunction, sleep disturbance, weight gain, and more.


What are Bio-Identical Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones that are made by the human body. Structural differences that exist between human, synthetic, and animal hormones can be responsible for side-effects that are experienced when non-bio-identical hormones are used.  The term “bio-identical” does not indicate the source of the hormone, but rather indicates that the chemical structure of the replacement hormone is identical to that of the hormone naturally found in the human body.  For this reason, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a much safer alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapy.



A visit to talk about bio-identical hormone therapy will include an extensive medical history, combined with blood or saliva testing. It is possible that a regimen will be prescribed that might include supplements, bioidentical compounded hormones, and changes to diet and exercise.
