About Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Your body produces specialized chemicals called hormones, which regulate numerous bodily functions, like brain function, metabolism, sexual reproduction, and more.

Hormones naturally fluctuate, but hormone levels that are consistently too high or too low interfere with essential bodily processes. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) helps regulate hormone levels to relieve unpleasant symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Bioidentical hormones are a specific type of hormone used in hormone therapy. They’re chemically identical to the hormones naturally found in your body, making it easier for your body to utilize the hormone supplements.

Common bioidentical hormones are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. If you have a hormonal imbalance, starting BHRT can correct hormonal deficiencies and help you feel your best.

What can hormone replacement therapy do?

BHRT is a popular treatment option for men and women suffering from hormonal imbalance. It’s a customized therapy that delivers a precise dose of bioidentical hormones to rebalance hormone levels in your body.

It can improve a range of bothersome symptoms, including:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Dry skin

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)

  • Fatigue

  • Hot flashes and night sweats

  • Irritability

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Low libido

  • Mental fog

  • Mood swings

  • Thinning hair

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Weight gain

Not everyone experiences all the same symptoms of hormonal imbalance, and many people assume their symptoms are part of the normal aging process. However, these symptoms aren’t normal — and BHRT can help.

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

Getting older is the most common cause of hormonal imbalance. For women, perimenopause and menopause often mean dropping estrogen and progesterone levels. For men, low testosterone (or andropause) is increasingly common with age.

If the symptoms of hormonal imbalance sound familiar to you, consider scheduling an appointment with a Midsouth Independent Group (MIG) specialist. The providers offer comprehensive hormonal evaluations to identify the cause of your symptoms.

Your MIG provider may recommend BHRT if they diagnose a hormonal imbalance. BHRT is highly customizable, and your provider works closely with BioTE® Medical and Regel Pharmalab, a local compounding pharmacy.

After starting your treatment program, your provider checks in with you regularly to ensure your plan is working well for you. They adjust your dose as needed, so you get the most relief from BHRT.
