The goal of Bio-identical Hormone replacement therapy is to provide an adequate supply of a deficient hormone in a form that is molecularly identical to that which your body produces. Logically, this should result in the hormone’s normal healthy physiologic effects being restored. Every person is unique. It is paramount that we customize a BHT program based upon your individual symptoms and hormone levels. The precise dosing of each person’s therapy will be determined after consultation and evaluation of laboratory blood tests, and may be adjusted if needed.

What is Involved in Starting on Bio-identical Hormone Therapy?
You will fill out a brief medical history and a symptoms questionnaire. We will discuss your symptoms and review the results from your blood test (if you had it drawn prior to your visit.) Alternatively, you can receive a lab test form during your consultation and return in several days to discuss the results of the tests and your appropriateness for this therapy. Known risks and side effects are minor and uncommon, though these will be discussed with you as well. If you decide to proceed, it takes less than 5 minutes to insert the pellets. You can resume normal activities (except for swimming and strenuous exercise which require a 4 day wait). You can expect to feel some improvements with in the first week.
Follow-up: 4 weeks after your first insertion, you will be asked to get another blood test and then come in to discuss what you have experienced in symptom relief. We will decide whether any adjustment needs to be done to your future dosage based on your blood test and symptoms. I will also encourage you to further enhance your own health by using the new found energy from restored hormone levels to exercise regularly and eat well. In your first year of treatment, expect to have 3 or 4 insertions.
Typically, men require insertion every 4 months and women require insertion every 3 months. You can
stop BHT treatment at any time, which will cause your hormone levels to drift back to your pre-treatment levels and your pre-treatment symptoms to return. There is no age limit on treatment.Though uncommon, patients as young as 25 (such as and those with PCOS or severe PMS) as well as men and women in their 70s or older have had wonderful benefits from this therapy.
