BHRT

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

GenAge Center provides bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men and women to help support youthful vitality. As we age, the natural levels of hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, decrease. BHRT helps restore the balance of these important hormones.

What symptoms does BHRT help alleviate?

Women experience this hormonal decline as menopause, and men experience the decline as andropause. In both cases, there are similar symptoms and can be helped by hormone replacement therapy:

  • Decline in muscle mass

  • Increase in fat mass

  • Physique changes

  • Decreased energy or fatigue

  • Brain fog

  • Problems sleeping

  • Mood changes

  • Sexual health changes

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are identical on a molecular level to the ones produced by our own bodies.

How is BHRT administered

Bioidentical hormones come in the form of implanted pellets, topical creams, and oral lozenges/troches.

How long does BHRT take to work?

It takes 12-18 months for the full benefits of BHRT to manifest.
While oral preparations have the fastest onset, they also have the shortest duration of action. Using one lozenge every 8 hours boosts hormone levels for roughly 12 out of 24 hours. 
The creams, applied twice daily, build up a depot in the subcutaneous tissue, giving them longer activity durations. Activity from the bioidentical creams takes about 2-3 weeks to take hold, which is roughly what the implanted pellets require. However, it’ll be 4-6 weeks until physicians can consistently see improved blood levels and the patient-client can consistently feel the difference.
