Hormone Therapy for Women

Hormone Therapy for Women

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) introduces hormones into a woman’s body to supplement natural hormones when their production is insufficient for maintaining optimal health. Hormones act as messengers in the body, instructing various parts on how and when to function. They are responsible for nearly all bodily tasks. Thus, low or imbalanced hormone levels can significantly affect overall health and feelings of wellness. Women most commonly use BHRT to manage symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, but hormone imbalances can arise at any stage, even as early as the 20s.

Bioidentical hormones, made from plant estrogens, have an identical molecular structure to natural human hormones, and therefore function the same way. Common hormones utilized in BHRT for women include estrogens (estradiol (E2) and estriol (E3)), progesterone, testosterone, pregnenolone, and DHEA. These hormones can be specially compounded for each patient based on the healthcare provider's instructions.

The Advantages of BHRT for Women

Hormone replacement therapy may help to provide relief from numerous symptoms, both physical and emotional, when hormonal imbalance occurs in a woman's body.

BHRT may help with the following:

  • Reduce hot flashes and night sweats
  • Alleviate vaginal discomfort like dryness, itching, burning, and painful intercourse
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Boost energy levels
  • Address urinary issues
  • Alleviate joint aches and pains
  • Strengthen bones
  • Impact mood
  • Reduce irritability and brain fog
  • Enhance memory

Beyond regulating menstruation, estrogen impacts a woman’s urinary tract, heart, blood vessels, bones, breasts, skin, hair, mucous membranes, pelvic muscles, thyroid, and brain. Studies indicate estrogen's protective role on multiple organs and systems throughout a woman’s life. As such, BHRT may also help alleviate symptoms of other chronic conditions.

Our extensive formulary comprises a variety of BHRT dosing options in multiple dosage forms for women.

Women who are experiencing symptoms mentioned should consult their healthcare provider to explore if a compounded hormone prescription could be a viable solution.
