BHRT – What to Expect with the First Insertion

2019-03-14T10:33:43-05:00

I went for my first ‘insertion’ and it went well. I was nervous. The nurse I met with called me back and explained my lab results to me. I believe that she used the description ‘bone dry’ to describe my hormone levels. She explained that I would be getting two pellets, one with estradiol and one with testosterone. I would also take a dissolvable tablet at night before bed, this was progesterone. I am looking forward to the progesterone because she said it would help me sleep. I was then instructed to get up on the exam bed on my side [...]

What is BHRT?

2019-01-16T14:33:28-05:00

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy addresses treatment options to alleviate the symptoms caused by imbalanced hormones or a natural drop in hormone production due to aging. Treatments are often called “bioidentical” or sometimes “natural” because the types of hormones used are biologically identical on a molecular level to those produced in the body. Some of the hormones that BHRT works to balance include those associated with youth and fertility, such as estrogen, progesterone, and sometimes testosterone. The years prior to menopause, women typically produce less of these hormones. This can lead to symptoms of vaginal dryness, tiredness, hot flashes and night sweats just to name [...]

2019-01-16T14:20:12-05:00

I am a healthy 42 year old woman. I had one child when I was young. I am not overweight, I have no underlying health issues and take no medication. I only go the doctor once per year for my annual checkup and of course my mammogram. I did everything I was supposed to do. So why out of the clear blue did I start skipping some of my periods, having horrible night sweats, and suddenly gain 8 pounds over the past 9 months? I worked in a BHRT clinic for a couple of years in my early 30’s so I [...]

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women Dealing with Menopause

2019-01-11T12:33:15-05:00

The symptoms of menopause are a direct response to declining hormones, specifically estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This can occur naturally or it can occur surgically via oophorectomy (ovary removal). The decrease in hormone levels will likely bring on symptoms like night sweats, palpitations, insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, irritability and hot flashes. Many women notice an increase in vaginal dryness causing painful intercourse as well as dry skin as hormone levels decline. Some cognitive symptoms caused by the onset of menopause are poor memory and difficulty concentrating. Some women describe their minds as “fuzzy” like there are cobwebs affecting their ability [...]

Hormone Therapy?

2018-11-20T09:36:29-05:00

Hormone Therapy   Hormone replacement might make you think of over-sized athletes and sweaty team jerseys. The stigma of hormone therapy or rather, hormone abuse, tends to often circle back to testosterone. Much of what we hear about in the media are the highly exaggerated extreme cases; we all know this, but we still listen as if it were the gospel truth. The bottom line is that the answer to so many deadly ailments do not lie in the drugs that treat the condition, but rather in educating people to prevent the ailment altogether. Unfortunately, this is not information that the [...]

BHRT for women-The Basics

2019-01-08T11:36:05-05:00

BHRT for Women-The Basics One thing is inevitable, we are all aging. We all age at the exact same pace, and there is no stopping it. As a woman continues to age, she will likely start having symptoms of hormonal imbalances indicative of menopause. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are the reproductive hormones that when imbalanced can cause a plethora of symptoms. A hormonal imbalance is ultimately when your hormones are not where they should be, meaning your body could be producing not enough of a hormone or even too much of one. These imbalances can cause someone to notice fatigue, loss [...]
