The Basics of BHRT for Women
Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment doctors may recommend to relieve common symptoms of menopause, as well as to address long-term biological changes. These changes are the result of declining levels of estrogen and progesterone whether those occur naturally or after medical procedures, such as a hysterectomy.
The hormones used at Archway are known as bio-identical hormones, which are identical in molecular structure to the hormones made in your body.
These bioidentical hormones are made or synthesized, from a plant chemical extracted from soy and yams. Bioidentical estrogens include: 17 beta-estradiol, estrone and estriol. Bio-identical progesterone is simply progesterone, which is finely ground in the lab for better absorption.
Because bioidentical hormones act like the hormones our body’s produce, they are sometimes called “natural hormone therapy”. However, the word “natural” can “muddy the waters” in HRT management.
For example, Cenestin is made from plants. However, it is not a bio-identical substance. One advantage bioidentical estrogen has over commercially sold Premarin, is that a woman’s estrogen levels can be more precisely monitored. This allows better tailored regimens to meet individual patient needs.
