Bio-identical Hormone replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment option for women experiencing difficulty with the symptoms of hormone imbalance.  This therapy involves restoring the missing hormones in your body to correct imbalances caused by factors such as aging, stress, surgery, or other life events.

At your first appointment, I will assess your symptoms and goals for treatment, and may recommend blood work to measure your hormone levels and identify any possible nutritional deficiencies. Based on your results, I will create a personalized hormone replacement therapy prescription plan to address your specific hormone imbalances.

The benefits of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy are numerous, including improved sleep, stress management, relief from hot flashes, enhanced skin appearance, and increased libido.  Most women benefit from progesterone therapy, but depending on your symptoms and results, you may also need estrogen and/or testosterone.  The prescriptions I write are bio-identical hormones, which are made to be identical to the hormones your body naturally produces and are better tolerated with fewer side effects than conventional hormone replacement therapy.

Bio-identical hormones are often made in compounding pharmacies, which are specialized pharmacies that can compound or make customized prescriptions that are not commercially available. This helps ensure that your prescription is tailored specifically to your needs, avoiding a one-size-fits-all approach.

Hormones can be taken in a variety of forms, including orally, through creams or gels, patches, or even applied vaginally, depending on the specific hormone treatment and symptoms we are treating.

Hormone replacement therapy is generally recommended for women having difficulties with their symptoms of hormone imbalance, including those in peri-menopause or who have been menopausal for less than 10 years.

In conclusion, hormone replacement therapy is a personalized treatment option to correct hormone imbalances and restore balance to your body. I am dedicated to providing you with the best possible care and using the highest quality bio-identical hormones and compounding pharmacies to meet your unique needs.
