Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (also known as BHRT) is a means of replacing hormones that are no longer being produced naturally by the body. Not only are we replacing deficient hormones, but we are trying to balance current hormones to eliminate symptoms of menopause and the aging process.
The hormones we are working to balance are Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone.
At Performance Medical Clinic, your evaluation will include a detailed consultation with a Medical Doctor, and extensive blood analysis to identify both deficiencies and imbalances. Not only are Bioidentical Hormones extremely effective, they are safer than their pharmaceutical counterparts and other synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormones are the exact chemical structure that your body intended to use.
Keep in mind Bioidentical Hormones are always superior to synthetic, pharmaceutical alternatives.
Throughout the aging process, our bodies change and develop certain hormone imbalances and deficiencies. Menopause is defined as the time at which menses has stopped for one year, however, symptoms can become apparent several years before actual menopause occurs. This is referred to pre-menopause or perimenopause.
Perimenopause most often starts in women ages 40-44, but can begin in some women as early as their 30s!
These feelings can be uncomfortable and life altering, but can be alleviated and even eliminated completely with Hormone Replacement Therapy.

40 - 50% of Women experience some form of Sexual Dysfunction.
Low sexual desire often leads to relationship distress and anxiety.
Many times, Sexual Dysfunction is a symptom of Hormone Imbalance, which is why it is very important to have Hormone Levels checked prior to beginning any type of treatment.
Keep in mind that Sexual Dysfunction or lack of libido can be a sign of Hormonal Imbalance in Women. Hormonal Imbalance can also lead to symptoms of weight gain, fatigue, grumpiness, depression, low libido, and dryness. Hormonal Imbalance can be diagnosed with a simple blood test and with treatment, results can be astonishing.
