Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has been used for decades to help alleviate symptoms of menopause and andropause. As people age, their hormone levels decline, causing a range of physical and emotional symptoms. HRT helps restore hormone levels to more optimal levels, providing relief for symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and decreased libido.
There are several types of hormone replacement therapy available, including pills, patches, and creams. However, these standard forms of HRT may not be suitable for everyone. Some people may need a different dosage, a different combination of hormones, or a different delivery method. This is where compounding comes in.
Compounding pharmacies, like Woodbridge Pharmacy, offer customized HRT options that can be tailored to fit each patient's unique needs. Compounded hormones can be made in various strengths, dosage forms, and delivery methods. For example, a woman who is experiencing vaginal dryness may benefit from a compounded estrogen cream that can be applied directly to the affected area. A man who needs testosterone replacement may prefer a transdermal cream or sublingual tablet instead of injections.
Compounded hormones can also be combined into a single dosage form, known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT refers to hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. This can provide a more natural and effective form of HRT for many people.
