Bio Identical Hormone Replacement

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy right for me?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) incorporates formularies made from natural sources — like plants — that are nearly identical to the chemical structure of the hormones your body already produces. Because BHRT solutions are so similar to your body’s hormones, they tend to provide faster relief with fewer side effects.

This modern approach to hormone therapy may be right for you if you experience any of the following issues:

  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes or night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Poor sleep patterns
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Anxiety or irritability

These are just some of the initial warning signs that your hormones might be imbalanced, meaning you may benefit from BHRT.

Which type of bioidentical hormone replacement do I need?

At Integrity MediCenter-MediSpa, Dr. Wiita spends quality time getting to know all about you, your health history, and the symptoms you’re experiencing. She’s going to run some labs to check your hormones to determine if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you.

Depending on your lifestyle, symptoms, and outcome of your labs, you may benefit from any of these BHRT estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, or combination hormone formularies:

  • Implanted pellets for men or women
  • Compounded topical creams for women
  • Testosterone injections for men

With so many different types of BHRT solutions available, Dr. Wiita gives you plenty of options for resolving your side effects.

How long does it take for bioidentical hormone replacement to work?

It just depends on the severity of your hormone imbalance and which formulary you and Dr. Wiita decide is best for you. In many cases, it’s common to start experiencing benefits from BHRT as quickly as just a few weeks after starting your treatment.

If you have more severe hormonal imbalances, it might take up to two months or more for you to experience full relief from uncomfortable side effects. But Dr. Wiita and the team at Integrity MediCenter-MediSpa have you check in regularly and can always make adjustments to your personal bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan as needed.
