Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is used to help treat the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and post-menopause. Treatment with bioidentical hormones usually includes creating a unique cocktail of hormones for the individual patient, based on hormone deficiencies identified via saliva samples. These are often referred to as “custom-compounded” hormone products.
The major benefit of this type of treatment is that doses are individualized, and the mixture of products may not be commercially available.
