                                                                        BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Bio-identical hormone preparations are medications that contain hormones that are an exact chemical match to those made naturally by humans.
Bio-identical hormones produce the same physiologic responses as those of endogenous (body's natural) hormones. The Food and Drug  Administration (FDA) considers bio-identical hormones to be natural regardless of their source, and as a result they cannot be patented. 

Who should use BHRT?​

​Women who are experiencing pre-menopause or post-menopause symptoms could be candidates for hormone replacement therapy.​
