Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to the structure of the hormones your own body makes. Bioidentical hormones are made from plant-based materials, unlike conventional man-made hormones, which are produced from synthetic materials. Bioidentical hormones help to make up for the estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone that your body has lost.

How can bioidentical hormones help me?

Bioidentical hormones are used in replacement therapy to restore hormonal balance. The hormones may relieve a wide range of symptoms, such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Pain during sex
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Brain fog
  • Memory loss
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Less interest in sex
  • Vaginal dryness

The team at Wellness for Women discusses your options for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy after a blood test to assess your hormone levels. They design a treatment plan to rebalance your hormone levels and help relieve your symptoms. 

What happens in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

The team at Wellness for Women administers the hormones through the pharmacy’s custom-compounded hormone formulations or pellets inserted underneath your skin. A pellet, which is the size of a grain of rice, gradually releases hormones once inserted. 

Your provider typically places the pellet in the region of your buttocks. They numb the area, then insert the pellet. Your insertion spot might feel a bit sore for a few days. The entire procedure takes less than five minutes and needs to be repeated only every 4-6 months. 

How does bioidentical hormone therapy make me feel?

  • More in control of their bodies
