Hormone Replacement Therapy

Serenity’s individually tailored Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Program also considers unique factors, including your current health, lifestyle and ultimate goals. Bioidentical hormones come from natural plant extracts that are biologically compatible with your physiology; they are structural replicas (hence bio-identical) of the hormones produced by your body’s endocrine system.

For Men

If reduced levels of testosterone are causing your erectile dysfunction, bringing those hormones to optimized levels could likely resolve erectile dysfunction. While Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treats erectile dysfunction, it also comes with numerous health benefits, including:

  • Weight loss 
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Stamina
  • Improved energy levels
  • Higher libido
  • Depression relief
  • Controlled glucose levels
  • More self-confidence

For Women

The bioidentical hormones that the providers at our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee use for hormone therapies benefit women with a wide array of symptoms, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pain during sex
  • Sleep problems
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Mood changes
  • Memory loss or foggy thinking
  • Energy loss and fatigue

What Can You Expect From Hormone Therapies?

Here is a typical example of how patients may respond to hormone therapies, but results vary from patient to patient.

  • Week 1: Patients experience a reduction in anxiety and insomnia.
  • Week 2: Women experience a reduction in vaginal symptoms and hot flashes.
  • Week 3: Women and men may have increased energy and better cognitive skills.

Most people experience approximately 80% symptom relief in six to eight weeks when all endocrine systems are addressed. Each individual must work with our expert providers to decide how long to continue with hormone therapies

The experienced hormone providers at our functional medicine clinic near Milwaukee provide patients with reliable and trusted hormone therapies. It’s time to feel better.

Bioidentical hormones vs. synthetic hormones for hormone therapies

Our experienced hormone providers prefer bioidentical hormones to synthetic ones for our hormone therapies. Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived hormones that are chemically extracted from soy or yams. They have the same molecular structure as the hormones that our bodies make.

Traditional medicine often uses synthetic hormones for their hormone therapies. These hormones are produced from products that are not natural. In addition, they are not molecularly identical to natural hormones. Synthetic hormones also have additives and coatings that can cause side effects, including burning in the urinary tract, allergies, joint aches and pains. For these reasons, our experts believe that bioidentical hormones are best for the hormone therapies we provide.

Hormone therapies can be administered several different ways, but our hormone experts do not recommend pellets. Pellets have several disadvantages, including expense and side effects. Our patients respond very well to the transdermal method of delivering hormones. It has several advantages over pellets because it is less expensive and easier to adjust. Other patients may get their bioidenticals in the form of injections, creams, gels or oral medications.
