Personalized BHRT Plans at H2T

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses bioidentical hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones your body naturally produces. These hormones can help replace declining estrogen and progesterone levels, often associated with hormonal imbalances in women.

While more women start to see their hormone levels decline as early as their late 20s, those hormones continue to decline until the start of menopause around the age of 52.

Other factors such as stress, lack of proper nutrition, poor sleeping habits, lack of exercise, smoking and alcohol intake can further cause a decline of hormone levels while women are still young. Hormonal support for women as they progress through their life stages can include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone for the alleviation of symptoms. 

You are not alone.

Hormone Loss By Age

Pre-menopause

 As early as their late 20s or early 30s, many women experience declining female hormone levels, especially progesterone. As a result, sleep becomes a bit restless and superficial, and irritability or mood swings may emerge. If treated at this stage with a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment plan, women suffering from these hormone imbalance symptoms will find life enjoyable again.

Peri-menopause

In their 40s, women usually notice significant changes in their menstrual cycles. Some women may experience increased PMS symptoms, irregular periods, headaches, severe mood swings, shorter or longer periods, and lighter or heavier periods. While every woman’s experience of peri-menopause is different, other common symptoms may include fatigue, mental fogginess, increased abdominal fat and weight gain, bloating, water retention, migraines, dysmenorrhea, acne, food cravings, mood swings, infertility, and irregular menstrual periods.

Menopause

In their 40s to early 50s, a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Women going through menopause often experience a combination of symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, sudden tears, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, heart palpitations, fatigue, anxiety, urinary urgency, inability to sleep through the night, clammy skin, depression, and weight gain.

Hormone Harmony 

What is the hormone replacement procedure like?

Bioidentical hormone implants offer a convenient and natural approach to hormone replacement therapy for women. These tiny implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small doses of bioidentical hormones, mimicking the body's natural production.

How does hormone therapy work?

  • Sustained Release: Unlike pills or patches, implants provide consistent hormone levels for up to three to four months, eliminating the rollercoaster effect of fluctuating hormone levels that can cause mood swings and energy dips.
  • Natural Approach: The bioidentical hormones used in hormone therapy are structurally identical to those produced by the body, minimizing potential side effects.
  • Highly Effective: Many patients experience significant improvement in symptoms with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using implants.

Goodbye Symptoms, Hello Balance 

What conditions does hormone replacement therapy address?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can reduce or eliminate the symptoms that occur during the menopausal phase of the female experience. BHRT is designed to replace the hormones your body is not producing during perimenopause and menopause. Bioidentical hormones match the molecular structure of your natural hormones.

BHRT can provide relief from many menopause-related symptoms, which may include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Loss of libido (interest in sex)
  • Painful sexual intercourse due to vaginal dryness and loss of tissue elasticity
  • Mood changes
  • Weight gain
  • Thinning hair and dry skin

Improved Energy, Mood, & Sleep 

What are the benefits of hormone therapy for women?

Hormones play a pivotal role in regulating numerous bodily functions, including heart rate, metabolism, appetite, sleep quality, sexual wellness, and body temperature. Therefore, even a slight hormone imbalance can significantly affect your overall well-being. Overall benefits include:

  • Improved quality of life
  • Reduced menopausal and andropause symptoms
  • Increased energy levels and better sleep
  • Improved mood and cognitive function
  • Enhanced libido and sexual function

Beyond Hot Flashes 

Am I a candidate for hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy offers an effective solution for combating the challenging symptoms associated with aging in women, such as low energy levels, mood fluctuations, sleep disturbances, excess belly fat, dwindling libido, and more. 

There is evidence that systemic hormone therapy can be an excellent option for perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women. A consultation at H2T can help determine if hormone therapy is right for you.

Don't Just Survive, Thrive! 

Hormone Therapy Recovery

Hormone replacement therapy is a minimally invasive treatment with no downtime. Depending on the chosen administration method, you may experience some minor side effects like breast tenderness, bloating, mood changes, headaches, or nausea. However, these typically resolve as hormone levels balance out. 

The Science of Feeling Good

Yes, hormone therapy for women, like any medical treatment, comes with both potential risks and benefits. The risks can vary depending on factors such as the type of hormone therapy, dosage, duration of use, and individual health factors. Potential risks associated with hormone therapy for women include increased risk of blood clots and stroke, particularly when patients are on estrogen therapy (and especially if they have high blood pressure or smoke). Some studies have suggested that long-term use of combined hormone therapy (estrogen plus progestin) may come with a slightly increased risk of breast cancer. There is also an increased risk of heart disease, particularly in older women or those with existing risk factors, and a higher risk of gallbladder disease. Your H2T hormone therapy specialist will carefully evaluate your medical history to ensure the benefits of treatment outweigh any potential risks.
