Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy


Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are chemical couriers that deliver messages to and from every cell in the body. They influence nearly every aspect of our lives, working in synergy to maintain optimal health and well-being. Beginning in our mid-thirties, production of these key hormones gradually starts to decline until we reach menopause. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an individualized, medically supervised treatment plan that can alleviate the symptoms of diminished hormone levels. Visit our FAQ and Patient Resources pages for more information.

There are multiple options and approaches to restoring hormones to optimal levels.

Intramuscular micro-injections: This is one of the most common treatment options for low testosterone levels in females. Weekly injections are an effective way to maintain a consistent and steady level of testosterone in the body. A small intramuscular injection is administered once weekly, either by our care team in our office or self-administered by the patient at home.

Bioidentical hormone pellets: Tiny pellets of compressed bioidentical testosterone and/or estrogen (smaller than a Tic-Tac) are placed under the skin near the hip. Your provider will numb the area where the pellets will be placed, and the procedure takes around ten minutes to complete. The pellets dissolve slowly, releasing a steady level of testosterone into the bloodstream over the course of several months.

Topical application: a blend of testosterone and estrogen specific to your personal treatment plan is compounded by our state-of-the-art pharmacy. The cream is applied once daily to the skin in the suprapubic area (below the belly button and above the pubic bone). Topical hormone preparations are short-acting, so it’s important to apply them at the same time each day. Care must be taken to avoid transferring the medication to others through skin-to-skin contact.

Oxandrolone is a steroid medication that is sometimes used in combination with hormone replacement therapy in both men and women. Oxandrolone is a short-acting compound that is molecularly similar to testosterone and is usually prescribed for short periods of time.

Oxandrolone has been shown to increase muscle mass and strength, allowing individuals to perform more intense physical activity and lift heavier weight. This, in turn, can lead to improved strength and power. Oxandrolone can also help with improving vascularity, or the visibility of veins and arteries, by reducing subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) and increasing the muscle definition. This can enhance the appearance of muscle tone and definition.

Finally, oxandrolone has been shown to aid in fat loss. By increasing muscle mass and reducing subcutaneous fat, oxandrolone can help individuals to achieve a leaner and more toned physique when combined with a regimented physical training program, adequate rest, and proper diet. It is taken orally in the form of a capsule, tablet, or lozenge each day for up to forty-five days.

Other potential benefits of oxandrolone include:

  • Increased muscle mass

  • Improved fat loss and vascularity

  • Enhanced physical strength and endurance

  • Faster recovery after workouts

  • Increased protein absorption

  • Improved cognitive function

  • Better overall sense of well-being

  • Increased sex drive

Some potential benefits of BHRT include:

  • Reduction in body fat

  • Reduction or elimination of hot flashes

  • Improved skin elasticity and youthful appearance

  • Improved sex drive

  • Improved sleep quality

  • Relief from vaginal dryness and painful intercourse

  • Increased energy levels

  • Improved memory and cognitive function

  • Enhanced mood and reduced symptoms of depression

  • Improvement in overall sense of well-being

  • Improvements in mental focus and clarity

  • Lower risk of heart disease and diabetes

  • Improved bone mineral density, reducing the risk of osteoporosis

  • Increased lean muscle mass

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy should only be utilized under the guidance of a licensed healthcare professional. It's important to find a healthcare provider who specializes in BHRT and is well-versed in monitoring and adjusting treatment plans based on individual patient needs.
