Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones match the molecular structure of the natural hormones created by your body. Bioidentical hormones are synthesized from a plant such as yam or soy and are created for use in treatment. Technically, your body won’t be able to distinguish bioidentical hormones from what your body produces. When used in treatment, bioidentical hormones can relieve menopausal symptoms. Other possible benefits include:

  • Reduction of hot flashes
  • Improved sleep and fewer muscle aches and pains
  • Improved mood changes
  • Relief from symptoms of urinary frequency
  • Reduction in osteoporosis
  • Reduction in cardiovascular disease
  • Significant improvement from vaginal dryness and in sexual function

What does Dr. Eckert’s hormone replacement therapy entail?

The first step to beginning your bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is having a consultation with Dr. Eckert. He draws your blood to conduct a comprehensive hormone profile that assesses your current hormone levels. Armed with these results, he creates a personalized formula designed specifically for you. The compound may include up to four different ingredients, depending on what you need.

These are:

  • Progesterone, to help prevent osteoporosis, reduce uterine fibroids, aid in the treatment of endometriosis
  • Triestrogen, a combination of three different estrogens that can manage hot flashes, insomnia, and vaginal atrophy, as well as help increase energy
  • Testosterone, to increase libido and energy
  • DHEA, which is helpful in reducing hormonally-induced stress

Your personalized prescription is specially compounded from non-synthetic plant derivatives. They are prepared as either suppositories or capsules taken orally.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy can have a variety of benefits and should be considered if:

  • You show a loss of collagen
  • You’ve had a hysterectomy before you went through menopause
  • Your ovaries do not function as they should, resulting in an inability to produce hormones the body needs
  • You have a family history of osteoporosis
  • You have symptoms such as vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, or lack of libido
  • You suffer from postnatal depression or premenstrual depression
  • You experience moderate to severe hot flashes or other menopausal symptoms

HRT is not used for disease prevention. If you have questions about hormone replacement therapy and whether it is right for you, contact the office or stop by today.
