Darien Hormone Replacement Therapy

Women who experience menopause, as well as men who are undergoing andropause – the “male menopause” — often share concerns about the impact their hormonal changes have on heart function, bone health and the risk of fractures, as well as other potential aging health problems like cancer, diabetes, and macular degeneration.

Both sexes experience diminished sex drive and depression. Women often endure night sweats, sleep disturbances, and hot flashes. Men are frustrated by their loss of strength, endurance and muscle mass, and the resulting fatigue this produces. Patients who would prefer an alternative to synthetic hormone replacement of naturally produced hormones should explore hormone replacement therapy in Darien.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in Darien is the use of supplemental hormones with a chemical structure that is identical to that of human hormones. The bioidentical hormones used are created from wild yams and soybeans containing unique compounds. When processed chemically, they may be made into identical replicas of hormones produced by the human body.

Your BHRT specialist either prescribes a static dosing schedule or a rhythmic cycling to mimic nature. It is taken via cream, suppository, by injection or orally. Over a period of months, gradual improvement in all the above symptoms is achieved with this naturally produced therapy.
