Bio Identical Hormone Replacement for Women
Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. As well they affect your ageing process, skin character, bone health and strength. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being.
What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for Bio Identical Hormone Replacement therapy and is used to treat women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It’s most frequently used to ease symptoms of menopause and perimenopause such as hot flashes, mood swings, skin changes, low libido, strength changes and weight gain in the abdomen.
Bioidentical hormones are man made hormones derived from plants that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment. Bioidentical hormones come in various forms, including creams, pills, or a mixture of both.
What can I expect:
At your first visit you will meet with the Provider to go over your complete medical history and symptoms. Please bring your last mammogram and pap smear results. You will have laboratories drawn to determine your levels of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Approximately one week later you will return for a follow up visit to go over lab results and get a prescription for your bio identical hormone replacement medications.
You will follow up with the Provider every 90 days to discuss your progress and improvements and to get a refill on your hormone therapy. Your labs may be redrawn 1-2 x per year to determine any changes that may need to be made to your BHRT.
The first visit is 300$ and quarterly visits are 125$
