Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What happens when you have a hormone imbalance?

When you suffer from a hormone imbalance, it can create a range of symptoms. It can change how you eat and sleep, how much energy you have, and even impact your libido. For women, common symptoms include:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue or low energy
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression or anxiety

In men, the symptoms are similar and also include:

  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low energy
  • Low stamina
  • Reduced muscle tone

While sometimes the normal process of aging causes hormonal imbalances, like with menopause and andropause, at other times things like toxins or an unbalanced lifestyle with too much stress may be the cause.

At BioMD Balance Solutions, Dr. Beregovskaya identifies issues with hormonal imbalance and works to correct and treat the problem with bioidentical hormone replacement.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy works to re-establish hormonal balance to reduce your symptoms.

When you see Dr. Beregovskaya for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, she uses hormones created from yams and soy, which are bio-identical to the hormones imbalanced in your body. They could include those associated with menopause and andropause, like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, or other hormones including:

  • Melatonin
  • Ghrelin
  • Thyroid
  • Cortisol
  • DHEA

Your body is unable to tell the difference between its natural hormones and the bio-identical replacement hormones, so it responds to them the same. That reduces your symptoms and restores your health and wellness.

Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Beregovskaya may prescribe bioidentical hormone replacement therapy through:

  • Oral pills or sprays
  • Topical creams or lotions
  • Injections
  • Pellets that are placed under the skin

What benefits are seen with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

When you see Dr. Beregovskaya for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you can see a range of benefits. In women, this therapy can reduce the symptoms of menopause and improve:

  • Energy
  • Mood
  • Memory
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Skin elasticity

For men, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can improve:

  • Energy
  • Sex drive
  • Muscle mass and tone
  • Memory
  • Stamina

In both sexes, bioidentical hormone replacement has protective benefits, boosting the immune system. It can also have a detoxing effect, removing toxins from the liver and gastrointestinal tract.
