Maintaining balance is essential for health and well being particularly as we get older. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a choice among many individuals looking to restore hormone equilibrium. However, it’s crucial to be aware of side effects like with any medical treatment. At Hew Health, we have a team of experts specializing in both men and women who understand the complexities of BHRT and strive to provide effective treatment.
BHRT involves utilizing hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by our bodies. This personalized approach allows for treatment while minimizing side effects compared to other hormone replacement options. That said, going to a normal PCP or Endo for hormone therapy is one of the worst options. They are not experts in the realm, they do not know how to safely prescribe protocols, and the hormones they give you are produced by Big Pharma that leads to high risk of stroke, heart attack, and other severe health problems. Even though BHRT is the safest option by far, it’s important to acknowledge that BHRT does carry some risks.
Potential Side Effects
Although BHRT is highly regarded as safe, certain individuals may experience side effects which can include:
- Nausea and Digestive Upset: Some people might initially experience discomfort in their system as your system re-regulates. Our expert team, at Hew Health closely monitors your progress and can make adjustments to minimize discomfort.
- Fluid Retention: Temporary fluid retention may occur as a result of BHRT leading to swelling or bloating sensations. This can be common if your estrogen in both men and women are not regulated while you are on a BHRT protocol. Our team possesses the expertise to customize your treatment plan in order to minimize this effect.
- Headaches: On occasion individuals who undergo BHRT may experience headaches. Our team is skilled, at adjusting hormone levels to alleviate this symptom.
- Breast Tenderness; This side effect is commonly observed among women undergoing BHRT. Our experts diligently monitor hormone levels to maintain balance and reduce this occurrence. This is also why we require our patients to get blood work completed every 3 months.
