Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Hormones govern a wide range of bodily systems, and an imbalance can seriously affect how you feel. 

Your hormone levels naturally wane with age, but they may also be affected by stress or illness. A reduction in hormone levels throws your body into a state of hormone imbalance, leading to a variety of unpleasant symptoms.

Some of the most common symptoms of a hormone imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Decreased sexual wellness, including erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness
  • Mood changes
  • Decreased motivation
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Thinning hair
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Mental fog
  • Irritability

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, call Dr. Qureshi at Creekside Family Practice for a thorough exam and hormone check.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are all-natural hormones that are specially formulated to restore balance in your body. 

These hormones are derived from plant ingredients and match your own hormones exactly, so your body processes and uses them efficiently. Your body can’t tell them apart from the hormones it produces on its own.

They contain no fillers, chemicals, or synthetic ingredients. This makes bioidentical hormones less likely to cause unwanted side effects.

With bioidentical hormone therapy, your hormone levels are rebalanced, which helps you transition through menopause and the aging process more comfortably. The therapy resolves issues that seriously affect your quality of life and ability to function day-to-day.

How is bioidentical hormone therapy administered?

Bioidentical hormones may be administered:

  • Orally
  • Topically
  • As pellets inserted just under the skin
  • With injections

Dr. Qureshi uses the most accurate testing to identify your current hormone levels so he can tailor the bioidentical hormones to you. The type of hormone therapy you receive depends on the severity of your symptoms and your wellness goals.

Bioidentical hormones are prescribed for the shortest period necessary to help you adapt to your changing hormone levels.

Don’t let reduced hormone levels change your life. Learn more about how bioidentical hormones can help you feel like yourself again by calling the office of Creekside Family Practice or by booking an appointment using the online tool.
