Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

As you grow older, you go through menopause if you’re a woman or andropause if you’re a man. Menopause and andropause are natural parts of aging, but they can cause unpleasant side effects because of the changes in hormonal balances.

Fortunately, our doctors at IYA Medical in Scottsdale, Arizona, specialize in a safe, natural treatment for men and women called bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), which reduces your symptoms by mimicking your former hormonal balance. 

Discover how getting bioidentical hormone therapy can benefit you.

About bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

If you’re currently in the perimenopause, menopause, or andropause stage of life, you might experience unpleasant side effects. You could find it harder to sleep at night, feel your sex drive and energy levels decreasing, and experience a decrease in strength and increase in weight.

Bioidentical hormones lessen these side effects by restoring the hormonal balance you had before menopause or andropause. The treatment increases estrogen levels in women and testosterone levels in men.

The completely customized plant-based bioidentical hormones are designed specifically for you and mimic your own unique, natural hormonal balance.

Benefits you get from BHRT

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers you a number of health benefits and reduced symptoms.

Reduced symptoms of menopause and andropause

The bioidentical hormones we create for you are nearly identical to those that occurred naturally in your body before you experienced menopause or andropause. As a result, your body can’t tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and the ones your body produced.

Once we restore your personalized bioidentical formula, you gradually experience fewer of the life-disrupting symptoms the hormonal imbalance caused. You start to feel better in as little as two weeks, with full results coming within six months of the start of your treatment.

Fewer side effects than traditional hormone therapy

Traditional hormone therapy is another option for restoring your hormonal balance, but it tends to cause more side effects than bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. 

With traditional hormone therapy, it’s common to experience fluctuations in your hormonal balance that can cause side effects.

We administer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy by placing a pellet in your body that regularly and consistently releases hormones. This allows you to get the same carefully measured dose of hormones at all times, ensuring you only get the positive benefits of the bioidentical hormones, without the side effects.

Get personalized treatment tailored to your hormones

Our experienced team completely customizes your bioidentical hormone therapy treatment to your body’s needs. We tailor your dose of estrogen or testosterone specifically for you based on your gender, personal hormonal balance, and specific needs.

No one else in the world has a bioidentical hormone formula quite like what we design for you. This allows you to get optimally personalized, specific results from your treatment.

If you’ve had enough of the side effects that come with menopause or andropause, consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. To make an in-office or virtual telehealth appointment with our IYA Medical team, contact us at 480-750-8130.
