Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
All About Bio Identical Hormones
Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as the naturally occurring hormones which are produced in the body. They are derived from diosgenin, which is sourced from Mexican yams. Bio Identical Hormones are 100% identical in chemical structure to our own hormones.
Bio-identical hormones can, therefore, be very beneficial to people suffering from hormone imbalances or have previously tried other hormonal medications, including HRT, and experienced unwanted side effects.
Both men and women can benefit from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) because it can provide relief from a wide range of symptoms experienced during the menopause, andropause and other hormone-related conditions such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), postnatal depression, endometriosis and menstrual problems.
At the Dr Victoria Clinic we will invite you for a consultation and appropriate tests in order to evaluate your hormone levels. If a hormonal imbalance is diagnosed, a personalised treatment plan of bio-identical hormones is structured specifically for the patient.
We always carry out regular follow ups and ongoing monitoring to help achieve optimum results and esnure patient safety.
