What's the Difference Between HRT and Bioidentical Hormones?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and bioidentical hormones offer different approaches to treating hormonal imbalance caused by menopause, Andropause, or other medical conditions. HRT is a one-size-fits all approach to hormone replacement, while bioidentical hormones are custom compounded to match your individual hormonal levels.

  • Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
    HRT involves taking synthetic hormones that are similar but not identical to natural hormones produced by the body. It is commonly used for treating symptoms of menopause and Andropause, but can also be used in certain conditions such as thyroid disorders. The most common types of hormone replacement therapies include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and DHEA.

    Bioidentical Hormones
    Bioidentical hormones are synthetically produced from plant sources such as soybeans and yams. They are designed to mimic the exact molecular structure of human hormones for maximum effectiveness in hormone replacement therapy. This type of treatment is often referred to as “natural” because it does not involve synthetic hormones or animal products. Additionally, bioidentical hormones can be supplemented with other medications to customize your unique treatment plan based on individual needs.

    Some benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:

    • More targeted relief from symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances

      Improved energy levels

      Increased libido

      Relief from hot flashes and night sweats
