HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (HRT)
When your hormones are out of balance, it can throw your entire life out of balance. As we age, our body’s natural resources begin to deplete. Restoring vital hormones such as estrogen and progesterone can reduce menopausal symptoms and improve our overall quality of life.
What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are a synthetic form of hormones that are biochemically identical to those that our body naturally produces. When used for Hormone Replacement Therapy, they can have a life-changing impact.
HRT eases menopausal and postmenopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and even depression. Prolonged use of bio-identical hormones can also improve bone density and cardiovascular health.
Best Self Medical Arts offers several options when it comes to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Bio-Identical HRT Creams
Some women prefer HRT creams due to their ease of use and instant absorption. The topical cream is pre-measured and it sends estrogen directly into the bloodstream making it more potent than other methods.
Patients can reduce the bothersome side effects of menopause with the once-daily pill. Oral HRT is available in multiple formulas based on your individual needs.
Bioidentical hormones delivered through a patch or cream, called trans-dermal, are more bioavailable and beneficial than oral HRT. Many women find the patch convenient because they only need to be replaced weekly or bi-weekly.
At the time of your consultation, Dr. Geer will talk with you about all of your options in-depth. Together, you can make an informed decision about what’s right for you.
