Compounding in Bio-Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

As women enter menopause, the circulation of progesterone and estrogen in their bodies is reduced. To counteract that phenomenon, more women are turning to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). The hormones used in such treatments are chemically identical to the actual hormones your body produces. This therapy is thought to help alleviate the discomfort associated with the diminished levels of the naturally-occurring hormones your body is lacking. As a compounding pharmacy, we can create a topical, sublingual or oral treatment that’s right for you. Ask your doctor about BHRT or give us a call. We’d be happy to help you get the treatment you need.
