Female Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement

As women age and approach or enter menopause, the production of the dominant female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, will decrease along with testosterone.

Additionally, certain medications, hypothyroidism, stress, and certain birth control methods can lead to hormone imbalance. The goal of bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT) is to return these hormones to their optimal levels and balance.


Women with estrogen deficiency or experiencing menopausal symptoms will commonly report the following signs and symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight Gain
  • Night sweats and hot flashes
  • Migraine headaches
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings, depressed mood, irritability
  • Decreased libido
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Brain fog and memory loss


Women with progesterone deficiency will commonly report:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Weight gain
  • Bloating
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles
  • Low libido
  • Mood swings


Most people incorrectly identify testosterone as a hormone that is only important in men. While it is correct to assume that men do produce significantly higher levels of testosterone, it is also very essential for women’s health.

Along with estrogen and progesterone, women produce most of their testosterone in the ovaries, but a smaller percentage of testosterone can also be produced in the adrenal glands.

Many women will experience low testosterone as they enter menopause, but the symptoms of low testosterone may begin in some women in their early to mid-30s.

Women with testosterone deficiency will commonly report:

  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain, especially in the abdomen
  • Decrease in strength and muscle tone
  • Depressed mood
  • Vaginal dryness and irregular menstrual cycles
