What is BHRT?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), otherwise known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, is the use of hormones that are identical on a molecular level from endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy.

When the hormones your body produces naturally are out of balance, you may benefit from hormone replacement therapy. BHRT can help you to feel like you again.

How does BHRT work?

Lavish Grace Wellness Med Spa uses pellets to administer bioidentical replacement hormones during BHRT.

Bioidentical hormone pellets are about the size of a piece of rice and can be inserted —  usually in your upper buttock — every few months, delivering a consistent dose of hormones, allowing you to feel better steadily and without the swings that often come from other methods, like injections or creams.

Your provider at Lavish Grace Wellness Med Spa can answer any questions you may have.

What is the difference between conventional and bioidentical hormones?

Conventional hormone therapy uses hormones from a pregnant mare’s urine manufactured to act like human estrogen. Synthetic hormones are also considered conventional hormone therapy. These hormones are produced in a lab using synthetic ingredients.

Bioidentical hormones are unique and designed to match the exact chemical structure of human hormones. These hormones are derived from plants, such as soy or yams. They can be customized to your needs, making BHRT a more personalized therapy.

Who is a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Candidates for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) are usually experiencing at least one primary symptom of hormone imbalance or hormone deficiency. Symptoms may include the following:

  • Unexplainable weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Mood swings

Women with specific symptoms of menopause can benefit from BHRT. During perimenopause and menopause, women experience a decline in the production of female hormones, including estrogen and progesterone. The drop in these hormones can lead to uncomfortable symptoms that interfere with your quality of life.

How do I know if I need BHRT?

A Lavish Grace Wellness Med Spa consultation can help you decide if you need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and which form is right for you. 

Hormone replacement therapy can be beneficial if you suffer from:

  • Poor energy levels
  • Moodiness
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Muscle weakness
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes or night sweats
  • Low sex drive
  • Bone loss

BHRT offers additional protective health benefits, including a reduced risk of osteoporosis and diabetes.
