Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are an alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapy. Unlike synthetics, bioidentical hormones are made from all-natural plant ingredients and match the makeup of the hormones in your body identically so they’re optimally absorbed and utilized by your systems.

Bioidentical hormones effectively treat a number of debilitating symptoms often overlooked by conventional doctors or symptoms that are written off as a natural consequence of the aging process.

Who benefits from bioidentical hormone therapy?

Men and women who exhibit symptoms of hormonal imbalance benefit from BHRT. The therapy is a natural and simple solution to improved wellness. In men, symptoms of a hormone imbalance include:

  • Weight gain and reduced muscle mass
  • Reduced sex drive and erectile dysfunction
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Trouble concentrating

Women who have hormone irregularities often experience these symptoms as they transition to menopause. Symptoms include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Memory problems
  • Low libido and vaginal dryness
  • Weight gain
  • Breast pain

Hormone therapy can reduce or resolve these troublesome symptoms in both men and women.

Hormone therapy can also ward off the health effects of a decline in hormone levels. These include a loss of bone density and weight gain.

How are bioidentical hormones delivered?

If Dr. Fortin determines you have a hormone deficiency, he recommends the insertion of pellets just under your skin. The procedure requires no anesthesia and is almost pain-free. The pellets time-release hormones as you need them so you get a consistent dose, leading to more balanced levels than can be achieved with creams, pills, or injections.

Research shows that bioidentical hormones have fewer side effects than synthetic hormone supplements. Dr. Fortin can customize your dosage and mix of hormones to match your needs.

When will I experience improved health from hormone replacement therapy?

Everyone responds to bioidentical hormone therapy differently, but most people start to see a resolution in their symptoms after two to four weeks. It may take up to six months to experience fully optimized health, however.
