How Bioidentical Hormones Work For Men And Women

Insomnia. Low sex drive. Difficulty concentrating. Do you feel like you’re not in control of your body? Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment derived from plant ingredients that replenishes your body to optimal hormone levels.

Do you realize how much of your body’s functioning relies on hormones? Having too little or too much of certain hormones wreaks havoc on your body. Hormones are chemical messengers that dictate vital body processes like metabolism, heartbeat, and mood. 

Insomnia. Low sex drive. Difficulty concentrating. These are signs that your hormones are out of sync. Do you feel like you’re not in control of your body?  

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment derived from plant ingredients that replenish your body to optimal hormone levels. Southern Secrets Medical Spa provides BHRT to patients in Conroe, Texas who want to feel energized and more youthful again. 

A naturally derived treatment made for you

Hormones control some of your body’s most important functions. When they’re imbalanced, even slightly, it can have a big effect on your well-being.  

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can boost low hormone levels, leading you to feel more energized and like yourself, again. Derived from plant-based ingredients, BHRT involves taking a supplement in a topical cream or pellet form that’s placed underneath your skin. 

Most patients experience results after 2-3 months of therapy but need up to eight weeks for peak results.  

How BHRT works for women

Menopause — when a woman hasn’t menstruated for 12 consecutive months — often occurs for most during ages 45-55 years old. Each woman experiences a different response to menopause: While some tolerate it easily, others may experience intolerable side effects. 

During menopause, the production of sex hormones progesterone and estrogen plummet leading to a variety of unpleasant symptoms. Do you experience hot flashes? Night sweats? Mood swings? 

BHRT is a great option for women who are greatly impacted by menopause and are looking for a safe, effective, and easy treatment to manage symptoms. Benefits include:

  • Reduced hot flashes
  • Improved vaginal dryness
  • Improved bone density
  • Improved mood
  • Consistent weight maintenance 

When you come in for your BHRT consultation, Andrew Martin MSN-FNP-C performs a physical and takes a blood sample to check your hormones.  

He sends the results to a pharmacist who creates custom bioidentical hormones, generally deriving them from soybeans and yams. The most common prescriptions for women contain progesterone and estrogen, and since they’re derived from natural substances, they have fewer side effects than traditional hormone replacement therapy.  

What men can expect from BHRT

Men experience a decrease in 1-2% of testosterone production after the age of 40. Lower levels of testosterone may be unnoticeable at first, but over the years can lead to decreased sex drive, loss of muscle mass, and low levels of energy. 

Most men have testosterone levels between 300-1000 ng/cl. If you’re below these levels, you may have a testosterone deficiency. BHRT can help replenish your body’s testosterone levels so your body can function at its best. 

BHRT can effectively:

  • Increase energy level
  • Boost sexual performance
  • Increase muscular strength
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Reduce body fat

You don’t have to sacrifice your well-being just because you’re getting older. BHRT can help you feel younger, better, and stronger.
