Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy refers to using supplemental hormones that are biochemical copies of those your body produces naturally. 

These hormones start as plants, like soy and yams. Those plants are then chemically altered in a laboratory by adding enzymes and conversion factors to become hormones your body can safely use. 

Bioidentical hormone therapy can offer great relief for people who have symptoms related to hormone depletion. 

Everyone experiences hormone changes as they age. In women, hormones plummet rather suddenly during menopause. In men, hormone loss is slower but equally impactful. 

 

When might I need bioidentical hormone therapy? 

Bioidentical hormones could be the best treatment for you if you have hormone-related issues such as: 

  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Hot flashes
  • Restless sleep
  • Mood swings 
  • Depression
  • Thinning hair
  • Mental fog

Many people experience multiple symptoms and ultimately have an overall lack of well-being and a poor quality of life as hormone levels fall. 

Bioidentical hormones give your body what it’s missing, and since the hormones come from plants versus animal sources, your body absorbs and uses them exactly like it would use your own hormones. 

 

How do I take bioidentical hormones?

Using the convenience of telemedicine, your provider at Apex Integrative Medicine, PLLC, evaluates the results of your blood tests to determine your exact hormone levels and which hormones you need. 

Estrogen is the main female hormone, and testosterone is the main male hormone. However, men also have estrogen and women have testosterone. Other hormones contribute to your well-being as well. You may need a blend of different hormones to get back to feeling your best. 

Bioidentical hormones come in many forms, including oral formulations, topical creams, injections, and implantable pellets. At this time, Apex Integrative Medicine, PLLC, offers most bioidentical hormone therapy options via telehealth. 

Your telemedicine provider sends your personalized hormone formula to a trusted compounding pharmacy, which ships your prescription to your door. You can get pills, creams, injections, and other forms of hormone replacement this way. 

The practice will also offer implantable pellets when they open the new physical office soon. Pellets gradually release the amount of hormones you need over several months, so you need implantation only a few times a year.
