Bioidentical HRT is a treatment using hormones identical to the ones your body produces. It helps raise levels of testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones that commonly decline due to aging. BHRT is a safe, effective treatment for many people struggling with hormone imbalance and the often-unpleasant symptoms it can cause.
The symptoms you can experience due to hormone imbalances include:
Without bioidentical HRT, your symptoms could start out mild and get progressively worse as you age. See your provider at the first sign of possible hormone imbalances.
To determine if you’re a candidate for bioidentical HRT, a Premier Care Medical Services PLLC specialist reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and discusses your desired outcome. Before personalizing a treatment plan, they complete a physical exam and order blood tests to evaluate your current hormone levels.
Bioidentical HRT is available in various forms:
After discussing your treatment preferences, your provider determines which form of hormone therapy is best for you.
You can take a pill by mouth, rub cream or gel on your skin, wear a patch, receive a hormone shot, or receive tiny hormone pellets just beneath your skin. For the last one, your provider numbs the area and makes a small incision before inserting the pellets and closing the incision using medical tape.
The Premier Care Medical Services PLLC specialist follows up with you periodically to ensure that your hormones stay balanced. They administer additional hormone treatments as needed or issue prescription refills for home-based bioidentical HRT treatments. Your specialist changes your treatment plan whenever needed.
Over time, you can expect fewer bothersome symptoms and an improved quality of life.
