BHRT an acronym which stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement therapy has been a common practice to cope with aging for decades. BHRT can help women who have always suffered from unbalanced hormones feel like themselves for the first time. Bio-identical hormones are derived from plant sources rather than animal sources or synthetic sources. Bio-identical hormones are said to most closely replicate the molecular structure of human hormones.
Female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can take the form of patches, creams, pills or pellets. These treatments and therapies contain estradiol, progestin and testosterone. When hormones are out of balance, hormone replacement therapy can help with many different symptoms including emotional symptoms, reproductive symptoms and non-reproductive symptoms.
Hormone replacement therapy can help anyone whose hormones are out of balance at any time. However, the most common time women seek out hormone replacement therapy is when they’re experiencing menopause. There are three stages to menopause—perimenopause, menopause and post menopause. There are also circumstances in which a woman has never experienced balanced hormones, as evidenced by excessively painful menstrual cycles and extreme mood swings.
While everyone’s results are different, the process for considering, getting, monitoring and continuing with BHRT is typically the same with all our patients. Your first appointment with your certified BioTE provider will include hormone testing. The next appointment will be to review your tests, after which you will be able to get a BHRT pellet inserted on that or the next visit.
