What is BHRT?

BHRT is a type of hormone replacement therapy used to treat symptoms associated with hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones similar to those produced by the body. The most common hormones made and used for replacement therapy are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone mix.

Men and women use these hormones to relieve the symptoms of menopausal, cancer treatments, and/or issues related to hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormones come in patches, pills, creams, gels, shots, and implanted pellets.
