Bioidentical Hormone replacement Portland, ME - Vital Hormone Clinic

Introduction to Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones naturally produced in the human body. As we age past our 20s, hormone levels begin to decline, leading to undesirable symptoms that disrupt wellbeing and vitality. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help restore optimal hormone levels, alleviating troublesome symptoms and enhancing health.

BHRT involves prescribing plant-based hormones that are biologically identical to human hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This allows the body to recognize and properly metabolize the bioidentical hormones, since they are exactly the same as what the body produces. BHRT is customized to the unique hormone levels and needs of each individual patient.

Signs and Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance

Imbalanced hormone levels can produce wide-ranging signs and symptoms. It is important to recognize these issues early and seek treatment before long term health consequences occur.

Progesterone Deficiency

Falling progesterone levels lead to a range of undesirable effects:

Prolonged progesterone deficiency causes a hormonal imbalance between estrogen and progesterone. Continued estrogen dominance increases cancer risks in organs like the uterus and breasts.
