What options do have I have for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.I've heard a lot about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. What options do I have in this category?


Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses hormones chemically identical to those produced naturally by your ovaries. Unlike synthetic hormone replacement therapy, BHRT can be customized and designed to meet your needs. Through a compounding pharmacy, you can have BHRT created in a form and dosage that is specifically for you.

Though the main concept of BHRT is individualization, there are also some prescription options out there that are suitable for many women. These can include the following:
  • Estrace (pill)
  • Alora, Climara, Esclim, Estraderm, Vivelle (patch)
  • Estrogel (transdermal gel)
  • Estrasorb (topical cream)
  • Estrace (vaginal cream)
  • Estring, Femring (vaginal ring)
  • Vagifem (vaginal tablet)

In one form or another, BHRT is a great option for many women because it works naturally with the body to restore hormonal balance. Be sure to talk to your doctor about all of your options so that you can find the best option for you.
