Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Q&A
What is bioidentical hormone replacement?
Bioidentical hormone replacement is a therapeutic treatment to rebalance your natural hormone levels. Structurally similar to the hormones your body makes naturally, bioidentical hormones come from yams and other plant materials.
The team at Carolina Clinic for Health and Wellness offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy services to treat hormone imbalances, which can occur in women during menopause and in men because of low testosterone levels.
When should I consider bioidentical hormone replacement?
You should schedule a consultation at Carolina Clinic for Health and Wellness to see if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you if you’re dealing with symptoms of a hormone imbalance.
Since your hormones control many of your body’s functions, you can develop a wide variety of symptoms that range from mild to severe.
Symptoms of a hormone imbalance in women can include:
- Vaginal dryness
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Pain during sex
- Weight gain
- Anxiety and depression
In both men and women, a hormone imbalance can cause persistent fatigue, sleep problems, changes in sex drive, and memory loss.
The team at Carolina Clinic for Health and Wellness offers on-site blood testing services to identify imbalanced hormone levels. They review your medical history and the severity of your symptoms to determine if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
What happens during bioidentical hormone replacement?
Based on the results of your hormone testing, the Carolina Clinic for Health and Wellness team customizes a treatment plan to your unique needs. They offer several delivery methods for the hormones, including:
They can also implant a pellet just under the surface of your skin that releases a steady supply of hormones into your bloodstream to provide long-lasting symptom relief.
Initially, it can take some time to find the right delivery method and dosage of the hormones to achieve symptom relief. The team continues to monitor your treatment progress and can make adjustments as needed.
The length of time you need to spend on hormone therapy depends on the symptoms you experience and the underlying cause of your hormone imbalance. The team can discuss what to expect for the duration of your therapy during your initial consultation.
