What is BHRT (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy)?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment that helps balance estrogen and progesterone levels during or near menopause. It helps relieve hot flashes, sweating, and other symptoms of menopause. It can also decrease the risk of osteoporosis.

There are risks connected with using hormone therapy. Therefore, hormone therapy should be customized for each patient, factoring in their specific health status and problems, the type of hormone therapy they need, and the dosage and duration of medication the therapy requires. Also, the therapy should be reassessed time and again to get the best results.

What Are the Basic Kinds of Hormone Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is the treatment that replenishes the body’s estrogen, which is no longer produced after menopause. Hormone therapy is done in two ways:

Systemic Hormone Therapy

Systemic estrogen is available in pill, gel, or cream form. They comprise a higher dose of estrogen that is absorbed by the body. It is beneficial to treat the common symptoms of menopause.

Low-Dose Vaginal Products

Low-dose vaginal medications of estrogen come in cream, or suppository form. They only provide a small amount of estrogen, just enough to address vaginal and urinary menopause symptoms.

Who Can Benefit From Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The advantages of hormone therapy may outweigh the risks if you are healthy. But if you exhibit some of these symptoms, you might want to consider hormone therapy:

Hot Flashes

If you suffer from moderate to severe hot flashes, systemic estrogen therapy is the most effective treatment for relief from menopausal hot flashes and night sweats.

Bone Loss or Fractures

Systemic estrogen helps protect against the bone-thinning disorder called osteoporosis. It is beneficial when the conventional treatments have not worked for you.

Early Menopause or Estrogen Deficiency

Hormone Replacement Therapy can help treat a wide range of health conditions such as:
- If you had your ovaries removed before forty-five years of age
- Premature or early menopause
- Loss of normal function of your ovaries due to primary ovarian insufficiency
- Your body gets less estrogen exposure than the bodies of women who experience typical menopause.

Other Symptoms

Hormone therapy can help ease vaginal symptoms of menopause, such as itching, dryness, burning, and discomfort during intercourse. Estrogen therapy can also help address certain health conditions like heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, dementia, and mood changes.
