Conditions Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help

Hormones do a lot for our bodies that we take for granted, at least until something goes wrong. When hormones are so important, it’s common for a problem with them to lead to or be linked to various conditions. Even if they aren’t linked to the problem, they can be linked to a solution. For this reason, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a treatment you should consider.

But what conditions can BHRT treat? If you don’t know what BHRT is for, how can you even consider it as an option for your treatment? The professionals at Optimus Health are here to help.

Summary of What Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Is

This is a therapeutical treatment where we insert small pellets under the skin of the afflicted area or near the afflicted area. These pellets will release a steady amount of hormones into your bloodstream for three to six months, balancing and improving your hormone levels, among other numerous health benefits.

We always numb the area before the insertion, and the procedure only takes 15 minutes. This isn’t a complicated surgery. The pellets we insert are approximately the size of a grain of rice.

Health Conditions That BHRT Can Help

BHRT can treat multiple conditions to the point that your body can overcome them, and it can be used to soothe symptoms of conditions that you can’t prevent or get rid of. They’re not all serious health conditions with life-threatening implications. Some are conditions that make life difficult to go through but aren’t the mark of some deadly diseases. Ultimately, BHRT improves your comfort while you deal with health conditions like:

  • Perimenopause: This is the stage in an Assigned-Female-At-Birth’s (AFAB) person’s life just before they hit menopause, and they are experiencing symptoms such as irregular periods, periods that are heavier or lighter than normal, tenderness of the breast, increase weight gain, heart palpitations, and more.
  • Menopause: This is the stage where an AFAB individual stops menstruating. They can experience symptoms like night sweats, hot flashes, depression, anxiety, mood swings, and more.
  • Depression: This mood disorder can be caused by several different factors, including imbalanced hormones. BHRT can be used to improve depression even if a hormone imbalance wasn’t the cause, but it’s most effective when a hormone imbalance plays a part.
  • Low Libido: The most commonly imbalanced hormones are the sex hormones testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. If this is the case for you, balancing them can improve your libido.
  • Difficulty Sleeping: Low estrogen levels and imbalanced testosterone levels can cause loss of sleep, particularly among AFAB.
  • Inability to Focus: Hormonal imbalances can make it difficult to focus. It can lead to you experiencing a fog around your brain that affects your cognitive functioning.
  • Mood Swings: Hormones have a strong influence on our moods, particularly our sexual hormones, so an imbalance can cause various levels of mood swings.
  • Weight Gain: An increase in estrogen and/or decrease in testosterone can cause someone to gain weight without building muscle. These hormones play a part in building muscle, not just our sexual functions.
  • Erectile Dysfunction: Assigned-Male-at-Birth (AMAB) individuals can suffer from being unable to maintain an erection to an imbalance or lack of testosterone. This will also affect their libido, but not always.
