Women's Health Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are made from plant chemicals designed identically to the naturally occurring estrogen and progestin hormones in your body.

Bioidentical hormones aren’t the same as synthetic hormones and don’t carry the same risk for breast cancer, strokes, blood clots, or coronary artery disease that synthetic hormones do.

What women’s health concerns can bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treat?

Around the age of 50, women enter menopause. Menopause is the stage of life when your ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone. The decline in hormone production causes a number of women’s health concerns that bioidentical hormones can treat, including:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Uncomfortable or painful intercourse
  • Low libido
  • Depression
  • Increased irritability
  • If menopause symptoms affect your quality of life, schedule an appointment at the MediSpa At Choto to see if you’re a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Are bioidentical hormones safe for women’s health?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is considered safe, and you’ll be regularly monitored to ensure it’s working as it should. The experienced team at MediSpa At Choto customizes a treatment plan to restore your hormones to healthy levels and requires routine lab testing and follow-up visits to monitor your progress.

Because bioidentical hormones are designed to mimic the naturally occurring hormones in the female body, they’re considered safer and better tolerated than synthetic hormones. As you undergo bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you commit to keeping your medical team informed of any changes you experience so you maintain the appropriate dosage levels.

Are there any side effects of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Some women experience side effects when starting bioidentical hormone replacement therapy until their body adjusts to the changing hormone levels. Common side effects include:

  • Breast tenderness
  • Spotting between periods
  • Cramping
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Vision changes
  • Acne
  • Indigestion

Women may also experience bloating and weight gain when first starting bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
