What is BHRT?


BHRT: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

BHRT can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It’s most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. It may also be used to improve symptoms of cancer treatment or to treat conditions such as:

  • insulin resistance
  • adrenal and thyroid disorders
  • osteoporosis
  • fibromyalgia

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

In addition to helping with symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may also reduce your risk for diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts. There’s some evidence that it can help improve skin thickness, hydration, and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles.
