Treatment Options

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) offers a range of treatment options tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual. Understanding the various methods available can help you make an informed decision about your care. Below, we explore each treatment option in detail.

Orals and Creams

Orals and creams provide a convenient method for hormone delivery, ideal for those seeking simplicity in their treatment regimen. These methods introduce hormones into the body through daily oral intake or topical application, allowing for consistent absorption. Patients can expect a gradual adjustment in hormone levels, leading to an improvement in symptoms over time.


Injections offer a direct approach to hormone therapy, suited for individuals requiring rapid absorption. Hormones are administered directly into the bloodstream through injections, offering quicker results than other methods. This option requires regular visits to the clinic for administration but provides swift changes in hormone levels.


Patches are designed for those who prefer a low-maintenance solution. Applied to the skin, patches slowly release hormones into the body over time, maintaining steady hormone levels. Users can anticipate minimal daily management with consistent benefits, making it a convenient choice.


Pellets provide a long-term approach to hormone replacement. Small pellets are implanted under the skin, releasing hormones consistently over several months. This option involves a minor procedure for pellet insertion but offers the advantage of not having to think about daily or weekly treatments.


Troches are unique for their flexibility and customization. These small lozenges dissolve under the tongue, allowing hormones to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Patients can tailor their dosage with ease and adjust as needed, offering a personalized approach to hormone therapy.
