Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Frequently asked questions about Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy:

What is bio identical hormone replacement therapy?

Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a medical treatment to supplement the body’s natural hormone levels to an optimal state with compounded or manufactured hormones. BHRT typically involves using the smallest amount of hormones to achieve the patient and physician’s desired results.

What are bio identical hormones?

Bio identical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones men and women naturally make in their bodies. Pharmaceutical companies manufacture these bio identical hormones through a chemical process involving yams and soy. The finished process is the exact chemical structure and shape designed by Mother Nature.

Who should consider bio identical HRT?

Women over 35 with pre or postmenopausal symptoms should consider talking to their physician about HRT. Some symptoms may include:

  • night sweats
  • mood swings
  • irregular periods
  • loss of libido
  • vaginal dryness
  • fatigue
  • hair loss or thinning
  • sleep disorders
  • weight gain
  • memory loss
  • problems concentrating
  • women with a family history of osteoporosis

Men over 40 who are experiencing symptoms of:

  • fatigue
  • loss of libido
  • depression
  • irritability
  • mood swings
  • loss of strength or muscle mass
  • increased body fat

Who should not consider bio identical HRT?

Women with the following symptoms are not typical candidates for bio identical HRT:

  • breast cancer
  • heart disease
  • liver disease
  • a history of blood clots
  • women without menopausal symptoms

Men who have had the following symptoms are not typical candidates for bio identical HRT:

  • prostate or breast cancer
  • benign prostate disease
  • want to have children
  • have polycythemia (too many red blood cells)

While on HRT, it is recommended that patients have regular follow-ups with their physician to monitor serum (blood) hormone levels. This is especially important in the first month or two of starting bio identical HRT. In the first few months the medication may need to be altered or changed to get the dosage and modality of therapy perfect for the patient. Everyone’s body is different and they have different responses to starting bio identical HRT. Regular yearly or biyearly follow-ups also allow the physician to maintain optimal hormone levels for maximum symptom relief.

For men it is also recommended to test for prostate-specific antigen and elevated blood cell levels, called a hemoglobin and hematocrit.
