As women approach menopause, their bodies begin to produce fewer of the hormones essential for optimal body function, health, and wellbeing. The hormonal decreases associated with menopause lead to a variety of physical and emotional symptoms ranging from a loss of libido and mood changes to physical symptoms including vaginal atrophy and weight gain. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy provides substitute hormones that are designed to match the individual patient exactly, providing a balance to the natural decrease in hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones are considered much safer than traditional hormone therapy. The difference is that traditional hormone therapy is mass produced for general consumption while the bioidentical hormones are made specifically for an individual patient.
The doctors at Centennial OBGYN offer bioidentical hormone replacement to provide the safest treatment that mimics the hormones produced by an individual patient. BHRT uses hormones manufactured to be identical to those in the patient’s body, improving the outcome for the patient. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is provided in pill, pellet, or gel form which. No matter how it is administered, the treatment releases small amounts of hormones to replenish the diminished hormone levels in the patient. A slow release system helps maintain a more consistent hormone level than traditional hormone replacement therapy provided in shots, patches, or pills.
