BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY

Dr. Cohen has been providing post-menopausal Bioidentical Hormone Therapy to women for over 30 years.  Your visit may include a breast exam, referral for lab testing and mammogram/thermogram, and an in-house bone sonometry test. Bone Sonometry testing is conducted without exposing the participant to radiation. While x-ray methods measure the density of bone, sonometry provides information relating to the strength of the bone, which is important in determining fracture risk. With this ultra sound method the results are ready in a few minutes! 

 

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is often called "natural hormone therapy" because bioidentical hormones act in the body just like the hormones we produce. Bioidentical hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment. They also come in various forms, including: pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections.

 

"When your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being."

Benefits of BHRT

BHRT is typically used as people age and hormone levels drop, particularly for women who are in peri-menopause or menopause. It’s used to increase the levels of the hormones that have dropped and improve moderate to severe menopause symptoms, including:

  • hot flashes

  • night sweats

  • mood changes

  • memory loss

  • weight gain

  • sleep issues

  • osteoporosis 

  • adrenal and thyroid dysfunction

  • can provide an enhanced overall wellbeing

  • decreased libido or painful intercourse due to estrogen deficiency

In addition to helping with symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may also reduce your risk for diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts. There’s some evidence that it can help improve skin thickness, hydration, and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles. For those with cancer who have undergone treatments that affect their estrogen levels, BHRT has been shown to be effective in improving their general well-being and quality of life. In one study, people with cancer who underwent BHRT found relief from treatment-related symptoms such as migraines, incontinence, low libido, and insomnia. The study also found their recurrence rate of breast cancer was no higher than average.
