Sex steroid hormones include:
- Androgens (Testosterone)
- Estrogens (Estradiol, Estrone, Estriol)
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.
