Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Are you feeling out of balance, experiencing brain fog, weight gain, moodiness, hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, premenstrual syndrome, infertility, irregular periods or decreased sex drive?

These symptoms can be a sign that your hormones are out of balance and not happy. BHRT is normally prescribed for menopausal symptoms but can also be used to help with hormone related conditions including endometriosis, fibrocystic breasts and post natal depression.

Compounded BHRT uses hormones of the same chemical structure as those in your body leading to less side effects. Doses are calculated individually based on your current hormone status determined by blood, urine or saliva testing combined with your presenting symptoms and can also take into consideration your genetics. As each woman is unique, at Virginia’s Apothecare we offer individual solutions rather than a one size fits all approach. This is extremely important when balancing hormones.

A doctors prescription is required for BHRT and we work closely with you and your doctor to help you feel like yourself again. Virginia can prepare your BHRT in a various individual strengths and different dosage forms including troches, topical creams, capsules, sublingual drops and pessaries. After your preparation is made you are not on your own. Virginia will continue to work with you and your doctor to make sure your HRT is working effectively and adjust doses if necessary to give you a truely tailored, personalised result.
