Hormone Optimization for Women


BHRT: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

BHRT can be used to treat women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It’s most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause.

Bioidentical hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment.

Benefits & Symptoms of BHRT

BHRT is typically used as people age and hormone levels drop, particularly for women who are in perimenopause or menopause. It’s used to increase the levels of the hormones that have dropped and improve moderate to severe menopause symptoms, including:

  • hot flashes
  • night sweats
  • mood changes
  • memory loss
  • weight gain
  • sleep issues
  • loss of interest in sex or pain during sex

There’s some evidence that it can help improve skin thickness, hydration, and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles.
