Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Hormone imbalance from decreased estrogen, progesterone and/or testosterone in women is at the root of the plethora of symptoms women tend to notice before and during menopause. Supplemental estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and other bioidentical hormones made from plants can restore the balance and reduce peri-menopause and menopause symptoms.

Balanced hormones can offer you:

  • Protection from osteoporosis through increased bone mineral density
  • Decreased symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness
  • Increased sex drive and sexual satisfaction
  • Improved sleep, increased energy, and increased concentration and memory
  • Relief from depression and decreased anxiety
  • Improved overall physical health (better skin, blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose)

Supplemental hormones can provide symptom relief, but the oral, transdermal, or injection delivery method of hormones can be inconsistent and inconvenient, and they can have some small risks. 

The BHRT form we prefer is the pellet delivery system from Pellecome.  Dr. Van Kirk inserts pellets right under your skin where they release a consistent dose of hormone to ease your symptoms. The pellets last for 3-4 months.

If pellets aren’t right for you, Dr. Van Kirk also offers compounded hormone formulas based on your body’s specific needs.
