BHRT Therapy for Women

As many as 75% of women experience hormone imbalance, and the symptoms can interrupt daily activities and decrease quality of life.

 If you have a hormone imbalance, you may be experiencing:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Lowered libido and lack of sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness or discomfort
  • Mood swings and difficulty regulating emotion
  • Changes in body composition and an increase in fat gain, particularly around the middle.

These imbalances can occur due to perimenopause or menopause – and they can also occur in women of all ages due to medical conditions, certain medications, and other causes.

If this sounds like you, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) may be able to help.

We know the severe negative impact hormone imbalance can cause. BHRT therapy works to restore hormones to optimal levels, so you can find your zest for life again. Our BHRT program provides access to expert medical care, continued support through telemedicine, and high quality and affordable medication conveniently delivered to your doorstep.

What is BHRT Therapy?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) helps optimize your hormone levels to relieve the frustrating symptoms of hormone imbalance. 

A hormone imbalance occurs when the human body slows or completely stops producing specific hormones. BHRT uses biologically identical hormones to replenish your levels, which can help you regain your energy, excitement for life, and desire for intimacy. 

Estradiol and Progesterone are the most common female hormones supplemented by BHRT therapy. Other common hormones are DHEA, Testosterone, and Pregnenolone. BHRT therapy comes in many forms, as well, which are called delivery systems. These include capsules, creams, suppositories, sublingual tablets, and subcutaneous pellets.

Defy Medical works with you to develop an individualized protocol based on your needs using the wide range of BHRT therapy options available, so you can reach hormonal balance.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) for Women

While it's considered a "male" hormone, women's bodies produce Testosterone, as well, and it's often included in a comprehensive hormone restoration protocol.

Testosterone deficiencies in women are underdiagnosed but can cause life-interrupting symptoms like sexual dysfunction, anxiety, weight gain and difficulty losing weight, and more.

We offer several types of Testosterone to help you find the one that works for you. These include topical application through creams and gels, implantable pellets, injections, and more.

Defy Medical offers an integrative approach to health care so we treat the whole patient, not just one or two disconnected symptoms. Hormonal balance is one part of the equation, but you may require more than one therapy to find symptom relief and to boost the quality of your life.

We'll work with you to develop an individualized plan that may include a combination of hormone restoration and other treatments.
