What is bio-identical hormone therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), is used to balance your hormones, improving and alleviating symptoms resulting from hormone deficiency as a result of aging or a medical condition.

The bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is targeted at increasing or balancing hormones that are tied to reproduction, sex, and youth.

What is the treatment like?

Bio-identical hormones come in many forms. They can be administered as pills, topical creams, transdermal gels and patches, shots, or implanted pellets. We also offer vaginal gels, rings, and tablets for our female clients.

After a consultation, our experienced physicians will perform routine medical tests such as saliva, urine, or blood tests to measure your hormone levels. That way we can determine the best possible method of treatment to prescribe for you. 

What are bio-identical hormones?

A hormone is a regulatory substance naturally produced by the body in order to stimulate specific cells or tissues into action.

They are part of the endocrine system and serve as the body’s chemical messengers. The most common hormones are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone and when these hormones begin to fade or reduce, it can lead to unpleasant symptoms, especially in menopausal women.

Some symptoms of a hormone imbalance may include:

  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of muscle
  • Insomnia
  • Pain during sex
  • Lack of energy
  • Loss of or low libido
  • Forgetfulness
  • Weight gain
