Working closely with a woman and her healthcare provider, a compounding pharmacist can help a woman start and maintain a hormone replacement regimen that brings her hormones back into balance and closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years. Bio-identical hormones are a natural alternative to synthetic hormones. They are derived from plant sources (soybean or yam) and are molecularly identical to the hormones your own body creates – progesterone, estradiol, and testosterone.
Bio-identical hormones are as effective as and better tolerated than synthetic hormones. Our pharmacists can customize bio-identical hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms, including:
• Capsules • Topical or vaginal creams, gels, and foams
• Suppositories • Sublingual drops or troches
Once therapy is begun, our pharmacists 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.
It’s your body…why not give yourself the option of a customized, compounded hormone therapy? Ask your health care provider or one of our pharmacists about hormone replacement therapy.
