Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

An increasing number of women are learning about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause that affect quality of life.

You may already be prescribing BHRT in the form of estradiol (Estrace® tablets or cream, Estraderm® patch or Vagifem® tablets), or progesterone (Prometrium® capsules). Compounded BHRT can incorporate these two hormones along with Estriol (E3), and Testosterone in any combination of dosage forms and strengths that are scaleable and customizable.

We invite you to learn more about custom compounds if your patients experience
hormone related symptoms or problems such as:

  • Depression
  • Dysmenorrhea (cramps)
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Hot flashes
  • Endometriosis
  • Insomnia or disturbed sleep
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Osteoporosis
  • Painful intercourse
  • Poor concentration or memory lapses
  • Premenopausal symptoms
  • Reduced libido
  • Vaginal thinning/dryness
  • Weight gain
Goals of BHRT

The ultimate goal of any BHRT is to provide an adequate supply of the deficient hormone in a form as close as possible to the original hormones, resulting in normal physiologic effects. BHRT can help:

  • Alleviate the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in hormone production
  • Give the protective benefits originally provided by naturally occurring hormones
  • Re-establish a hormonal balance
Individualized dosage

An important benefit to using compounded BHRT is that dosage strength can be modified to meet each individual patient's needs. Often, hormones can be combined into a dosage form that best suits the patient’s body type and lifestyle.

Some typical delivery types include:

  • Transdermal cream, gel or ointment
  • Regular or slow release capsules
  • Flavored lozenges or sublingual drops
  • Suppositories
