Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy In Greater Madison
Balance your body by restoring normal hormone levels.
BHRT can relieve symptoms of hormone imbalance, prevent memory loss, improve cardiovascular health, and bone production, growth and repair.
As you age, your body makes less of certain hormones key to quality of life.
Testosterone and estrogen imbalances cause issues like hot flashes, night sweats, low sex drive, sleeplessness, and mood changes.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) augments natural hormone production, restoring it to normal levels.
BHRT uses compounds identical in molecular structure and chemistry to the hormones naturally produced in your body.
We Are Passionate About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Some women sail through menopause without a symptom. Some women are not so fortunate. Bio-identical hormone therapy is very helpful for relieving the disrupted sleep, mood changes, hot flashes, weight gain, and loss of sex drive that some women experience during and after menopause.
The risks of using hormones are low when the hormones are applied to the skin with low-dose custom-compounded blends that are properly monitored with labs and thermal imaging of the breasts.
What Can I Expect?
The initial visit lasts 90 minutes. Dr. Stanger reviews symptoms in detail and discusses the medical and family history.
She incorporates principles of functional medicine when discussing bio-identical hormone therapy.
She addresses diet, lifestyle, and nutritional supplementation as part of the treatment approach along with prescription commercial or custom-compounded hormone therapy as needed. At the end of the visit, it may be necessary to draw labs to check hormone levels.
Once on hormone therapy, we require an annual visit, breast screening (either digital infrared thermal imaging and/or standard mammogram) and hormone levels (drawn at our office or elsewhere) to continue therapy. We retain the right to discontinue therapy for noncompliance. We do not file insurance for coverage of thermal imaging of the breasts.
