Anyone who has been through puberty knows that hormones have a powerful effect on one’s body. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, compounded hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions that women of all ages may experience, including:
These conditions affect millions of women. As the number of women seeking hormone-related treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry. However, each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs. Commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals. Compounding allows for individualized treatment based off of patient lab work and symptoms.
Make an appointment with one of our pharmacists.
Fill out our Hormone Balance evaluation form and return it to us before your appointment.
Take with our pharmacist at your scheduled appointment to review your evaluation form and answer any questions. Complete a saliva hormone test if needed (may be completed prior to step 3).
We will fax your health care provider a recommendation to review for bioidentical hormones.
Once our recommendation is signed by your healthcare provider, we will fill your prescription for bioidentical hormones.
Once the therapy is begun, the pharmacist will continue to work with the woman and her prescriber to make sure the HRT is working correctly, adjusting the dosage if necessary, ensuring that the medication is just right for her body.
It’s your body…why not give yourself the option of a customized, compounded hormone therapy?
