There are more than 45 million women in the United States that are in some stage of menopause. Menopause is defined as the termination of production of estrogens and progesterone by the ovaries causing one year or more without menstrual bleeding.
Both estrogen and progesterone decrease dramatically during menopause but do not disappear completely. Women experience a peri-menopausal period which can start as early as 15 years prior to actual menopause.
Until the last twenty years, the only hormonal replacement therapy available in most countries has been synthetic.
The problem is that synthetic hormones are not structurally the same as the hormones produced naturally by the human body.
This brings with it unwanted side effects, which include:
- high blood pressure
- increased risk of deep vein thrombosis
- increased triglycerides
- a decrease in human growth hormone
- an increase in weight
- an increased craving for carbs
- and a myriad of other side effects
So the question lies: Should a woman use hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?
Bio identical hormone replacement means using hormones that are biologically identical to what the body makes. To put it simply, the hormones are the same chemical structure as the ones that the body made before menopause.
Estrogen should only be prescribed by the transdermal route which is applying it to the skin. This avoids all the side effects mentioned above.
Synthetic estrogen taken orrally may decrease your hGH production.
Bio-identical estrogen is not a one size fits all therapy like the traditional oral route. The cream is compounded specifically to the patients’ needs and is applied to the fatty tissues such as the inner thigh or buttocks.
