If you wish to know more about how bioidentical hormone replacement therapy works, the following frequently asked questions will shed more light on this treatment option:
What are bioidentical hormones? ×
Bioidentical hormones are an exact match of the hormones produced by your body and are derived from plant and natural sources. Bioidentical hormones are custom made by compounding pharmacists. They are not mass produced by the pharmaceutical industry. Bioidentical hormones are plant-based, usually using compounds found in soybeans or wild yams.
Will I need blood tests prior to hormone replacement therapy? ×
The bioidentical hormone protocol made for you is based on your unique hormone levels which will be uncovered through blood testing.
Are bioidentical hormones safer than standard hormones? ×
There are no direct studies showing this. However, hundreds of thousands of men and women have been treated successfully and with fewer side effects. Bioidentical hormones have a very distinct effect on the body that is not found with the use of synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones are indistinguishable from the hormones your body produces naturally, which means they act on the same receptors and initiate the same effects within the body as your own natural hormones.
What types of Hormone Replacement Therapy are available? ×
At the biostation, we offer pellet, cream, and injection methods of hormone therapy. The type of treatment right for you will be dependent on your needs and unique lifestyle.
How often do I need to monitor my treatment progress? ×
Regular check-ins are required to determine if the dosage is correct, how the therapy is working (all people react differently), and to check side effects (if any).
The optimal solution for bioidentical hormone therapy replacement
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can be delivered in many forms. There are creams, gels and injections, but popular culture and our busy lifestyles have demanded another option, one that frees men and women from the hassles of daily dosing, optimizes hormone levels and minimizes side effects. This treatment solution is known as pellet therapy and though it may seem like a novel concept, it’s actually been around as long as bioidentical hormone therapy itself. Pellet therapy dates back to the 1930s—but only rose to popularity in recent years as on-the-go lifestyles have increased demand. Discover why pellet therapy is a preferred treatment option for many men and women seeking bioidentical hormone therapy.
