Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy(BHRT)

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a type of hormone replacement therapy that uses hormones that are identical in molecular structure to those produced by the body. The hormones used in BHRT can be derived from natural sources, such as yams or soy, and are compounded by a pharmacist to create a custom-tailored treatment plan for each patient. The types of hormones used in BHRT include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA. BHT differs from traditional HRT(Hormone Replacement Therapy) in that it uses hormones that are identical to those naturally produced by the body, whereas traditional HRT uses synthetic hormones that are not identical in structure.

BHRT has been found to have several benefits, particularly in managing symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. These symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood swings. BHRT has also been found to improve sexual function and libido in both men and women. In addition, BHRT has been shown to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women.

The pellets usually last between 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men.

BHT is available as a cream which is applied daily, or as pellets that are injected under the skin.  Because the pellets are made entirely of fused hormones, the pellets will completely dissolve over a period of time, and the hormones will be completely released within your body.
