Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Safe?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, is a clinical method used to treat the symptoms of hormone imbalance in men and women. Although BHRT is known to decrease symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue and memory loss, is it safe? The answer is yes.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

It’s important to understand why bioidentical hormones are different to get a better grasp on their effectiveness and safety. Bioidentical hormones come from plant materials.

These hormones are very similar to the ones found in the human body, making them highly effective when used in therapy. Their similarity to human-based hormones improves the safety of the hormones as well.

How Does BHRT Work?

The most common form of BHRT is hormone pellet insertion. This is the form of BHRT we complete here at Balance Hormone Center. By making a small incision in your buttocks, we can insert the pellet quickly. Then, hormones are released into your bloodstream over time.

For men, this often results in the decrease of symptoms such as muscle loss, memory loss and fatigue. For women, BHRT can help improve the symptoms of menopause such as depression, decreased energy and low libido.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Safe?

BHRT has been approved by the FDA for the use of treating hormone imbalances. This means the therapy follows the strict regulations and safety guidelines put forth by the FDA.

It’s important to note that very few additional clinical studies have been conducted to show the effectiveness and safety of BHRT beyond those performed by the FDA. Here at Balance Hormone Center, we’ve seen the effects firsthand and believe BHRT to be safe when performed by a qualified physician.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects?

BHRT is a medical procedure that requires hormones to be injected into your body. This means that like any other medical procedure, there are side effects some patients may experience after treatment, including:

  • General tiredness
  • Headaches
  • Bloating
  • Mood swings
  • Indigestion

Most of the side effects are due to the body adjusting to the new hormones. After the pellets have time to work, these symptoms should disappear. We’ll work closely with you to ensure the best experience possible.
