What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Numerous health advantages are linked to maintaining balanced and optimized hormone levels. Achieving hormone balance may lead to strengthened bone and muscle health, enhanced sleep quality, weight loss, heightened cognitive function, alleviation of anxiety and depression symptoms, and improved sexual wellness.

Our clinic specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in Lexington, MA, tailored to optimize your unique hormonal profile and enhance your overall well-being. Our approach involves an initial consultation with our nurse practitioner to address your health concerns, conduct a thorough health assessment, and order a comprehensive set of laboratory tests. Following the analysis of your lab results, you'll collaborate with your provider to determine the suitability of hormone replacement therapy for your individual needs.

Why Choose Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Opting for hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be advantageous for several reasons. As you age, your body naturally produces fewer hormones, which can lead to various health concerns such as weakened muscles and bones, susceptibility to fractures, cardiovascular issues, and memory decline. By balancing your hormone levels through therapy, you can experience numerous positive outcomes. These include safeguarding your heart, boosting energy levels, enhancing sleep quality, alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression, aiding in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight and body composition, sharpening memory and cognitive function, and revitalizing libido.

When combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise regimen, hormone therapy can serve as an effective strategy to optimize both your physical appearance and overall well-being.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are made to be very similar to the hormones your body naturally produces. They're often used in hormone replacement therapy to help balance hormone levels in people whose bodies aren't making enough hormones on their own. These hormones mimic the ones your body produces, which can help alleviate symptoms caused by hormone imbalances, like hot flashes or mood swings.

Can women use testosterone?

Absolutely! Despite common misconceptions, testosterone isn't exclusively a hormone found in males; it's actually quite prevalent in women throughout their lives. However, as we get older, our testosterone levels tend to decrease. Ensuring that your hormone levels are balanced has demonstrated benefits such as safeguarding your heart and bones, boosting energy levels, promoting weight loss, supporting a healthy weight, and improving sexual desire and overall sexual health.

Do bioidentical hormone replacement therapies come with any side effects?

Research findings have indicated that hormone therapy can offer protection for the heart, breasts, bones, and brain. In men, some commonly reported secondary effects may include fluid retention, acne, increased hair growth, and testicular shrinkage, which are considered typical. Women may experience acne, hair growth, and vaginal spotting after undergoing hormone therapy, according to some reports.
