About Bioidentical Hormones - What You Should Know
Bioidentical Hormones for Menopause, Andropause, and Much More
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, is the popular therapy for women whose hormone levels have dropped, whether through the aging process or for some other reason, such as ovarian hysterectomy. As men and women live longer, hormone therapy has gained popularity among those seeking a healthy vibrant life with strong healthy bones.
Patients, researchers, and healthcare providers use the terms “natural” and “bioidentical” to mean molecularly identical to the hormones produced in your body. Individualized, low-dose bioidentical hormone therapy is an alternative approach to synthetic hormone therapy. It uses what are called bioidentical (natural) hormones like estradiol, estriol, progesterone, cortisol, testosterone, and DHEA. The chemical structure of these hormones is exactly the same as the hormones produced naturally by a woman’s body.
A low-dose bioidentical hormone therapy prescription can be easily customized for each patient's unique needs by qualified compounding pharmacies. These prescriptions can be administered in a variety of forms including tablets, capsules, patches, and creams. The ability to customize the strength as well as the dosage form is unique to compounding pharmacies and an option many patients find appealing as it enables them to have their medication tailored to their individual needs and preferences.
