Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Defy Medical 02

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) involves the use of specific hormones including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone that are structurally similar to human hormones. BHRT is used to treat hormone deficiencies and ease symptoms that can include low libido, decreased ability to concentrate, fatigue, and others.

Type of Hormones used in BHRT

Sex hormones are the primary type of hormone prescribed in BHRT, usually as a topical cream or gel.

Sex steroid hormones include:

  • Androgens (Testosterone)
  • Estrogens (Estradiol, Estrone, Estriol)
  • Progesterone
  • Pregnenolone
  • DHEA

Estrogen and progesterone are commonly used to treat a range of conditions including low hormone levels.  Estrogen formulations typically consist of estradiol, estriol, or a combination of both. Progesterone can be given alone or combined with other hormones in a convenient single dosage form.

Sometimes non-bioidentical hormones may be recommended for certain conditions. At Defy Medical, we’ll discuss all options with you before finalizing your treatment plan.  

Common Hormone Products and Dosage Forms
HRT involves the use of a hormone or a combination of hormones to increase levels in the body.

Some medications have multiple forms of administration to choose from.  Having options allows for a more personalized treatment approach for the patient.
