Bioidentical Hormones Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

As you age, your body produces fewer of the hormones that regulate many of your critical body functions. That can lead to a variety of disruptive symptoms. Bioidentical hormone therapy is a highly customized treatment that replenishes your body’s hormone levels with hormones identical to those produced by your body.

Dr. Bonlie works with reliable and reputable compounding pharmacies to create the precise dosage of bioidentical hormones to meet your specific needs. His goal is to help relieve your symptoms and enhance your overall wellness with natural estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone.

What are signs of a hormone imbalance?

While women experience the most well-known signs of hormonal imbalance during menopause, men also suffer from hormonal imbalances and suffer from disruptive symptoms. Common signs of a hormonal imbalance include:

  • Weight gain
  • Muscle mass loss
  • Decreased libido
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Night sweats and hot flashes
  • Disrupted sleep patterns

Everyone has a unique experience with hormonal imbalances, and your symptoms may not be the same as your friends or family members. Similarly, treatments that work for you may not have the same effectiveness for others and vice versa.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy provides a comprehensive range of benefits for your health and overall wellness. For example, your moods will regulate and you’ll have fewer flashes of anger, anxiety, and depression. You may also find that your sex drive returns and that you feel revitalized and more like yourself.

Bioidentical hormone therapy also improves physical symptoms. You can regain muscle mass and have more success with your weight loss efforts. You may also find that you sleep better and that your skin improves. Women may see the signs of vaginal atrophy reverse, and that dryness and pain during sex subside. Men should have improved erectile function.
