They sail through this phase in their lives without even breaking stride. Others feel extreme changes. If you are one of the unlucky women who struggle with menopause symptoms, you are going to want to find a solution.

What is Bio-Identical Replacement Hormone Therapy All About?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is intended to restore balance to your reproductive hormone levels when they have dropped. They have the same chemical makeup as the estrogen and progesterone that is naturally produced by your body. Your hormone replacement therapy can be in the form of patches that are worn on your skin, injections, or you can have pellets inserted beneath the surface of your skin. You can talk with our specialist to help you choose the ideal form of treatment for you.

What Do You Need to Do to Begin Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is not a type of treatment that you can do on your own. You are going to need to see our specialist first to determine what is causing your symptoms. Through a physical examination, discussion, blood testing, and a review of your medical history, it will be possible to find answers about your health. If our specialist determines that your reproductive hormone levels have dropped significantly, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can benefit you. The blood test is the best way to pinpoint hormone levels. Once you have confirmed that you are experiencing symptoms caused by the approach of menopause, your treatment plan can begin. You will be monitored while you are undergoing treatment to help you to overcome your symptoms.
