Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the natural process of restoring and maintaining hormone balance. As women age, their hormone levels begin to fluctuate and eventually decline, causing uncomfortable symptoms during menopause, pre-menopause or PMS, including:
- Hot Flashes / Night Sweats
- Loss of Libido
- Trouble Sleeping
- Mood Swings / Irritability
- Irregular Periods
- Weight Gain
- Vaginal Dryness
Traditionally, women have used the one-size-fits-all approach of manufactured synthetic estrogen and/or progestin hormones to treat menopausal symptoms. Although these supplements provide relief for some, they also come with many unpleasant side effects and do not work for many. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be the key to help relieve these symptoms and help you feel your best. With a customized approach to hormone therapy, your hormone levels are precisely determined and the ideal replacement protocol of your choice is used to bring your hormones back to their proper balance.
The precise components of each woman’s therapy are determined after discussion of symptoms, medical history, and hormone levels are considered. Hormone levels can be measured by using an at home saliva testing kit. This test measures your hormone levels and can indicate whether or not your hormones are in balance.
By studying these results, your healthcare provider will prescribe a customized prescription medication that can be prepared by Medical Center Compounding Pharmacy in a variety of strengths and dosage forms.
