BHRT/Hormone Pellets

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a medical treatment that involves using hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones naturally produced by the human body. These hormones are derived from natural sources, such as plants, and are designed to mimic the hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and sometimes testosterone) that decline in production as individuals age or experience hormonal imbalances.

Key points about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) include:


Hormone Types: BHRT can involve the use of bioidentical versions of hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The specific hormones prescribed depend on the individual’s hormonal needs and health condition.

Customized Treatment: BHRT is often customized for each patient. A provider will access hormone levels through blood tests to determine the appropriate dosage and hormone combination.

Menopause and Perimenopause: BHRT is commonly used to alleviate the symptoms of menopause and perimenopause in women. These symptoms can include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness.

Andropause: In some cases, BHRT may be used to address hormonal imbalances in men, particularly related to a decline in testosterone levels often referred to as “andropause.” Symptoms can include fatigue, decreased libido, and mood changes.

Blood Testing: BHRT practitioners will use blood testing to monitor hormone levels and adjust treatment as needed. The goal is to maintain hormone levels within a specific range to alleviate symptoms.

Safety and Controversy: BHRT provides a more natural and individualized approach to hormone replacement. BHRT, like any form of hormone replacement therapy, may have risks and side effects. These can include an increased risk of blood clots, heart disease, breast cancer, and uterine cancer in some individuals. It is crucial for individuals considering BHRT to discuss these risks with their healthcare provider.
