What does BHRT look like?

reatment includes a comprehensive review of a patient’s blood work, current hormone levels, health history, and health goals. Based on the information gathered and the feedback of the patient, Dr. Hong will prescribe a personalized treatment plan that may include pills, creams, injections, or pellets. The length of treatment also depends on your individual needs and how you are feeling. While some patients may require long-term bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, others may only need hormones until their symptoms subside.

Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants, and they are chemically identical to hormones found in the human body. BHRT uses these hormones to help address symptoms related to hormonal imbalances. BHRT most often seeks to increase or balance your hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and adrenal hormones.
