The Use of BHRT to Manage Hormone Levels in Women
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
As women age, their levels of hormones can change dramatically—especially during menopause. At Rejuvenate MD Wellness MedSpa in the Glen Allen, VA area, women can achieve balance in their hormones with the help of BHRT.
What is BHRT and what is its purpose?
BHRT is an acronym for “bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.” this is a way of rebalancing the hormones in the body for a better quality of life. BHRT can also help patients who are experiencing the problems and symptoms related to imbalanced hormones. These may include issues such as:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Weight gain
- Dramatic mood changes
- Vaginal dryness
- Loss of interest in sex
- Discomfort during sex
- Foggy thinking and memory loss
- Loss of energy
- Loss of muscle mass
When hormones are imbalanced, they can greatly impact one’s overall quality of life. By using BHRT, these patients can bring their body back to its proper function and look and feel their best!
Bioidentical hormones are man-made alternatives to naturally produced hormones. They are created to match the three common hormones that can become out of balance, including testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. The FDA has approved these hormones which are molecularly identical to the structure of the hormones that are produced by the human body, and they have gone through testing to ensure safety and purity. By using customized bioidentical hormones, patients can enjoy a safer and more effective improvement when compared to more conventional hormone therapy methods.
Can women use BHRT to rebalance their hormone levels?
The North American Menopause Society, or NAMS, reports that approximately 1.4 million women are already using BHRT, and that approximately 40% of all prescriptions are being used for women who are in menopause.
How is BHRT administered?
Bioidentical hormones can be given to patients in a variety of ways, including pills, creams, injections, patches, and even pellets implanted into the body. The doctor can work with patients to determine which administration method is best for their specific needs.
