You Have Questions About Bioidentical Hormone Therapy; We Have Answers!
Here are five of the most frequently asked questions about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Is bioidentical hormone therapy safe?
Bioidentical hormone replacement treatment uses the same hormones — molecule-for-molecule — as the ones which occur naturally in your body, including progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.
Bioidentical hormones are made from all-natural plant sources to create hormones that are exact duplicates of human hormones. Bioidentical hormones are better recognized by the hormone receptors in your body and are, therefore, more effective and better tolerated than their synthetic counterparts.
Is Bioidentical hormone therapy only for women?
No, absolutely not men, as well as women, can benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement. While bioidentical hormone therapy is mostly known as a treatment for menopause, men go through a similar condition known as andropause, or low testosterone, sometimes called “Low-T.”
Bioidentical hormones are also effective in treating men with andropause.
How soon can I see the results of bioidentical hormone treatment?
Results vary from person to person and from men to women. Some patients report almost immediate results, feeling noticeably better in just a few days. For most patients, however, bioidentical hormone therapy takes about 3-6 before you can achieve all of the many benefits of hormone optimization.
Do I need a doctor’s prescription for bioidentical hormones?
Absolutely! Just because bioidentical hormones are made from all-natural sources, they are still powerful medications that cannot be purchased without a doctor’s prescription. Your physician will prescribe the right course and dosage of BHRT specifically for you, which will then be custom-made by the compounding pharmacy.
How are bioidentical hormones administered?
Bioidentical hormones can be given in a number of ways via injections, transdermal patches, creams, gels, or sub-dermal pellets. You and your doctor will determine which is the best method for you.
The Best Hormone Replacement Treatments for Menopause
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has become the preferred treatment for women who are suffering from the symptoms of menopause.
Bioidentical hormones are still approved for use by the FDA, even though they are usually made by compounding pharmacists.
You still need to have a doctor’s prescription for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and you still need to be carefully monitored over the course of your therapy.
You deserve to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle at any age! But unfortunately, as women age, their levels of critical hormones drop, which negatively impacts their ability to enjoy life.
