What Is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

Hormones impact numerous functions throughout the body, from metabolism and brain activity to mood regulation and fertility. Changes in hormone levels, such as those that accompany menopause and andropause, often leave many Frisco, TX women and men exploring hormone replacement therapy (HRT) options. As a seasoned family nurse practitioner, Katherine Johnson is pleased to offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets from Pro-Pell by Pharmacy Solutions®. She is certified in BHRT and may recommend this plant-based treatment option to bring balance to depleted hormone levels. Schedule a visit at Johnson Family Medical to learn if BHRT can help you feel more like yourself once again!

  • Improves sexual function and libido
  • Reduces symptoms of menopause
  • Increases ability to build muscle mass
  • Improves sleep
  • Reduces weight gain and helps you to lose fat
  • Helps to prevent bone loss

Who Is A Candidate For Bio-identical Hormone Therapy?

Ideal candidates for bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) are typically men and women over 40 who are noticing a variety of age-related changes in the function and performance of their bodies. These changes often include:

Women

  • Symptoms of menopause (hot flashes, sleep problems, night sweats, sexual dysfunction)
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Lowered libido
  • Mental fog
  • Depression
  • Bone density loss

Men

  • Low energy
  • Hair loss
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Lowered sex drive
  • Sexual performance issues (stamina, ED or erectile dysfunction)
  • Difficulty concentrating

BHRT may also be an option for women who have experienced early menopause due to chemotherapy, surgical removal of the ovaries, or other reasons.

Women who have a medical or family history of blood clots, stroke, or certain cancers may NOT be a candidate for BHRT. During your consultation at Johnson Family Medical, we will discuss your medical history and whether or not BHRT is right for you.

How Does BHRT Work?

Women with hormonal imbalances often experience hot flashes, headaches, weight gain, mood swings, insomnia, and other menopause symptoms. Men who are in the andropause stage of their lives may notice hair loss, decreased libido, loss of muscle mass, and lower energy, among additional concerns. If BHRT is recommended to manage these symptoms, Katherine will customize the dosage and place the pellets (containing either estradiol or testosterone) beneath the skin in the hip area. These procedures only take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete and may be scheduled every 3 – 6 months, according to individual needs.
