Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women

Hormone therapy for women is indicated in a woman with clinical symptoms and/or laboratory results indicating a hormonal imbalance.

  • Common types of BHRT for women include patches, creams, gels, sublingual tablets (troches), and oral pills. Formulations can be perfected by using a compounding pharmacy that can tailor ingredients and dosages to an individual’s needs.
  • Balancing of female hormones is achieved by using combinations of the following when clinically justified: Estradiol, progesterone, pregnenolone, DHEA, and testosterone. The use of bio-identical hormones is emphasized along with healthy lifestyle changes and supplements to achieve and maintain optimal results. Follow-up testing is a must to ensure that hormones are properly dosed and that the body is processing them effectively.
  • Conditions where BHRT is not Recommended: Any woman who has active breast or ovarian cancer.
