Women naturally experience several periods of hormonal imbalance throughout their lifetime, including during and after pregnancy and through perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Women are also at risk of developing different types of hormonal imbalance disorders than men because they have different endocrine organs and cycles.
Many factors can contribute to irregular hormonal imbalances in women, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), birth control medications, early menopause, and primary ovarian insufficiency (POI).
How does BHRT work?
There are many ways a patient may choose to utilize bioidentical hormones. Rejuve Health Clinics offers options specifically tailored to suit the needs of each individual. These options include topical gels and creams, vaginal suppositories, patches, injections, or pellet implantation. Every person will, at some point, experience a natural decline in hormones within the body – hormones affecting thyroid function, sex hormone(s), or growth hormone. If our goal is to achieve optimal health, ALL hormones must be brought to balance and optimized.
Benefits Of BHRT
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) use is typically considered as females age, and hormone levels naturally decline, particularly in women who are experiencing perimenopause, menopause, or postmenopausal symptoms. BHRT is used to optimize hormone levels that have become imbalanced and improve the moderate to severe symptoms often associated with these conditions.
Some benefits of hormone replacement therapy include:
- Eliminated Hot Flashes & Night Sweats
- Decreased Vaginal Dryness
- Improved Mood & Sense of Wellbeing
- Better Sleep
- Increased Libido or Sex Drive
- Reduced Anxiety & Depression
- Increased Energy
- Reduced Body Fat & Increased Muscle Mass
- Reduced Bloating
- Better Skin, Hair & Nails
In addition to the above-indicated improvements, hormone replacement therapy can potentially reduce the risk of diabetes and improve cardiovascular health.
IS BHRT SAFE?
While there are risks involved with any medical treatment, RHC patients are closely monitored by healthcare providers. This close monitoring ensures safety and the most optimal response to therapy. Additionally, Rejuve Health Clinics treats hormone imbalance with exclusively bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to hormones naturally produced within the body. The goal for treatment is to alleviate symptoms by replacing what is no longer efficiently produced, using hormones that the body recognizes.
