What Is Bioidential Hormone Replacement?

We’ve all experienced changes that come with aging or different phases in life. For many, these changes impact your hormonal balance, which can alter your sense of self and inner balance, sex life, weight, and overall health. Hormones are vital to many of the body’s natural functions. Hormones can become imbalanced as a part of the aging process or because of other factors.

Bioidentical hormone therapy supplies hormones to your system that are scientifically formulated to be identical to those already in the body. This can alleviate many symptoms of hormonal imbalance, including these significant concerns:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fluctuations in weight
  • Low libido
  • Mood changes

Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for Me?

This treatment is safe for the majority of patients and is typically recommended for individuals who are experiencing symptoms related to hormone imbalances, such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Memory loss

It is important to note that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not recommended for patients with a history of certain medical conditions, such as breast cancer or blood clots.

Your Personalized Hormone Replacement Therapy

Your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment will depend on the method of hormone replacement therapy used. Hormones can be delivered to the body in the form of pills, creams, injections, and even dissolvable implants. During your consultation, we’ll determine the best method for you, depending on your unique needs. We will explain what you can expect from the treatment process in detail and answer any questions so that you feel confident and prepared going forward.

What to Expect After Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

For those having injections as a part of their hormone replacement therapy, there may be some mild discomfort or bruising at the injection site, but this usually subsides within a few days. The results from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy become noticeable within a few weeks of treatment. You will notice an improvement in the symptoms listed above, as well as other positive effects that are connected to hormonal balance. Depending on the method used, you may need to receive multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.
