Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
for Menopause Relief
Serving Greater Charlotte & Belmont
What is menopause?
For Women’s Health, menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone. On average, this occurs at age 52, but can occur much earlier or later. Typical symptoms may include hot flashes, depressed mood, low libido, insomnia and vaginal dryness.
What is perimenopause?
What can be done?
An option is hormone replacement therapy to provide relief from symptoms due to menopause and perimenopause. Hormone replacement therapy options may include oral, topical, transdermal and pellets for estrogen, progesterone and testosterone replacement.
What are bioidentical hormones?
The term “bioidentical” means the hormone molecule is structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. Bioidentical hormones are available in many forms including patches, pills, topical creams, vaginal suppositories and pellets inserted under the skin. Some are available from pharmaceutical companies and are FDA approved and some are specially prepared by a compounding pharmacy.
Some common options for hormone replacement (including both bioidentical and non-bioidentical options) are listed by clicking here.
