Bioidentical Hormones Q & A

What symptoms suggest I need bioidentical hormone therapy?

Your body can react extremely to changes in hormone levels. Many of the symptoms associated with menopause can be reduced or resolved with bioidentical hormone therapy. These include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse
  • Reduced libido
  • Mood irregularities and sleep disturbances
  • Trouble with memory and concentration

If you experience any of these symptoms and they disrupt your daily life, talk to Dr. Clark-White at Women’s Progressive Health Care about bioidentical hormone therapy.

Why do hormone imbalances occur?

Hormone imbalances often occur during menopause, when you experience a shift in production of the primary sex hormones, estrogen, and progesterone. Your body naturally produces less of these hormones as you get older, or in response to a hysterectomy or cancer treatment.

You may also experience a reduction in the production of these hormones right after giving birth. Bioidentical hormone therapy restores your levels, thus reducing symptoms associated with hormone fluctuations.

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is a type of hormone replacement treatment. Bioidentical hormones, as compared to synthetic hormones, are made of all-natural plant ingredients. They match your body’s natural hormones exactly and don’t contain any fillers or chemical products.

Because bioidentical hormones are biologically compatible with your body, you use them efficiently and effectively to restore natural hormone levels.

What should I expect with bioidentical hormone therapy?

You can receive bioidentical hormones in a variety of ways.

  • Orally
  • Injections
  • Creams
  • Pellets inserted just under the skin 

The pellets release the hormones according to the needs of your body, so you never experience ups and downs in levels. The placement of bioidentical hormone pellets occurs in a simple in-office procedure.

The hormones reduce uncomfortable symptoms associated with a reduction in estrogen and progesterone. With bioidentical hormone therapy, you can feel like yourself again. The hormone therapy can help you reduce unwanted menopause effects such as weight gain and intense fatigue, too. Dr. Clark-White customizes your dosage, so you get just what you need to benefit.
