Bioidentical HRT for Women

Hormones affect many critical bodily processes, and any imbalance or deficiency can lead to significant health issues. To help millions of women who suffer from hormone-related health problems, Harbor Compounding Pharmacy is proud to offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (or bioidentical HRT) in various dosage forms and methods that will best fit your needs.

The Importance of Balanced Hormones in Women

Hormones are essential for numerous systems including metabolism, reproduction, mood, growth and development, sexual function, and more. Unfortunately, millions of women suffer from hormone-related health problems that can manifest in unpleasant symptoms and conditions such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
  • Menopause PMS
  • Infertility
  • Decreased Libido
  • Post-partum Depression
  • Irregular weight gain
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • And more

For many women, relief comes in the form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). However, not all HRTs are the same, and some may even be harmful to women, or at the very least, severely ineffective.

Why Synthetic Hormone Treatments Are Not Enough

There’s no shortage of mass-produced hormone treatments in the market. These options range from traditional synthetic and animal-derived versions such as medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) and conjugated equine estrogens (CEE).

The problem is that they only offer a one-size-fits-all solution that fails to work for a lot of women.

Every woman possesses an exclusive hormonal make-up, and factors like family health history, exercise, diet, stress level, and nutrition greatly determine one’s hormone balancing needs and hormone health. Therefore, it requires a unique balance of hormones to address their needs fully and effectively.

This is where natural Hormone Replacement Therapy using bioidentical hormones from Harbor Compounding Pharmacy enters the picture.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Offers a Customized Solution

In contrast to synthetic and animal-derived hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from yams and then are converted to hormones identical in chemical structure to human hormones. This makes these hormones naturally derived and bioidentical to the human body. When the body recognizes these bioidentical hormones , they can easily use them for various bodily functions.

Some detractors of natural hormone replacement therapy using bioidentical hormones raise the question of safety in comparison to traditional HRT using synthetic hormones. However, a recent study which compared the effects of synthetic HRT and bioidentical HRT revealed that patients reported a higher degree of satisfaction with bioidentical HRT compared to their synthetic counterparts.

In addition, synthetic progestins have been linked to various adverse effects such as an increased risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular issues. In contrast, compounded progesterone from using bioidentical progesterone is associated with a reduced risk for breast cancer.

When executed by accredited compounding pharmacies like Harbor Compounding Pharmacy, you can trust bioidentical hormones are a safer and more effective alternative when it comes to hormone replacement.
