Balance Your Hormones And Keep Them There With Customized HRT
The natural decline in female hormones as early age 30 and especially after menopause can produce unpleasant symptoms and medical conditions that put women’s overall health at risk. HRT with the sex hormones estrogen, progesterone, pregnenolone, DHEA and testosterone are prescribed to relieve some of these symptoms. The average age of menopause in the US is 51.
Unfortunately, certain medical histories can limit the hormones a woman can take. The risk may outweigh the benefit. For example, boosting estrogen may prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women but ERT may increase the risk for breast cancer in some women.
Benefits Of Progesterone For HRT
Low progesterone has been shown to impair verbal memory and overall cognitive function in postmenopausal women.1 Balancing progesterone may prevent and improve cognitive impairment caused by low progesterone.
Adding progesterone to estrogen replacement treatment may also reduce the risks that ERT therapy alone may pose.
Typically progesterone is added to ERT for women with an intact uterus. This is mainly because estrogen therapy alone may cause abnormal thickening of the uterine lining. This increases the risk for uterine conditions such as endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial cancer. Progesterone therapy may reduce the risk by thinning the uterine lining.2
Additionally, studies show that adding natural progesterone to HRT instead of synthetic (conjugated) progestins may reduce the risk of breast cancer that ERT may cause.3 This means that women with a history of certain estrogen positive cancers or fear the risks of ERT and/or may be unable to use ERT may have the opportunity. The brand medication Premarin is an example of conjugated progestin. It is made from pregnant horse mare urine.
The bioidentical progesterone used in this formula is plant-based and produced from diosgenin, an extract of the wild yam. The diosgenin must undergo a 3-step chemical process done in a lab to produce progesterone. Studies show that eating the wild yam is not effective for HRT or ERT.
Bioidentical progesterone is the active ingredient in brand Prometrium.
What Does Progesterone Do In Women?
In premenopausal women progesterone is responsible for the shedding of the uterine lining which results in a woman’s period.
What Is Compounded Medicine?
Compounded medications are made by experts who develop recipes specifically for each patient based on their medical condition and needs.
