FAQs: Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men and Women in Houston, TX
What is the difference between BHRT and artificial hormone therapies?
Bioidentical hormones are designed to be biologically identical to those made by your body, whereas synthetic hormones are made from substances that are not natural to the human body.
What are the benefits of BHRT?
Hormones regulate all our bodily functions. As we age, hormone levels can decrease or fall out of balance. For men, plummeting testosterone levels can result in low libido and erectile dysfunction. For women, low estrogen can lead to hot flashes, low libido, and vaginal dryness. For both men and women, shifting hormonal levels can dramatically decrease their quality of life, causing sleeplessness, loss of energy, weight gain and other concerns. BHRT can help to ease symptoms by bringing hormones back into balance.
What are the most common side effects of BHRT?
Potential side effects from BHRT are most common when the body is first getting used to the new level of hormones. As the body adjusts, the side effects should subside. These can include weight gain, increase in facial hair, mood swings, breast tenderness, acne and tiredness. Variations in the source, dose and mix of hormones can help ease any side effects.
