Bio-Identical Hormone Treatment Q&A

Why is BHRT important?

As we get older, our bodies produce less of the hormones we need, especially testosterone in men, and estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone in women. This decrease in hormone production is permanent unless it’s replaced. That’s where BHRT comes in: It replaces your body’s hormonal processes, allowing you to continue leading an active life.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones produced by organic materials, such as yams and soybeans. The extracts of this material are sent to a compounding pharmacist where after a series of chemical reactions, estrogen and testosterone are produced. These hormones are the exact molecular structure that’s produced by the body prior to women experiencing menopause and men with symptoms of testosterone deficiency.

The receptor cells in your body respond to these hormones exactly as they would respond to the hormones produced by your own ovaries and testes. BHRT returns levels to their normal, more youthful levels. This eliminates many of the symptoms associated with the loss of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

How are bioidentical hormones administered?

At Virapel, we treat hormone deficiency in men and women by utilizing pellets. These individually prepared pellets, supplied by an accredited compounding pharmacy, are the size of a grain of rice and are implanted under the skin. They’re continuously absorbed over 3-5 months in women, and over 4-6 months in men. Pellets have been used successfully since 1939 and studies have shown that they help maintain a constant therapeutic blood level until the next insertion is indicated.

Insertion dates are determined by observing your symptoms and specific lab data. 

Along with Estradiol and testosterone pellets your Virapel provider will also prescribe oral bioidentical progesterone. Progesterone is a crucial hormone that works in harmony with estrogen. It helps to balance the effects of estrogen and prevent its dominance. As estrogen levels decline during menopause, taking oral bioIdentical progesterone can help restore hormonal balance, reducing the risk of estrogen-related health issues like uterine cancer, breast cancer, and endometriosis.

Progesterone helps regulate body temperature, reducing the frequency and intensity of hot flashes and night sweats. Additionally, it has a calming effect on the nervous system, which can help stabilize mood swings and reduce anxiety and irritability.
