What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
What exactly are bioidentical hormones? Are bioidentical hormone safe? How is BHRT different from other kinds of hormone therapy? These are you questions – our BHRT doctors have the answers! To understand BHRT and hormone therapy, you have to first understand the role of hormones. Hormones control or regulate many of your body’s processes. And while hormones are critically important to your vitality and overall health, unfortunately, some of your most important hormones get used up as you get older. The goal of hormone replacement therapy, or HRT is to replenish those dwindling supplies, and correct any hormone imbalances. As the word “identical” implies bioidentical hormones are precise copies of the hormones your body naturally produces. So in answer to the question, “are bioidentical hormones safe,” bioidentical hormones are in fact the safest and most effective form of HRT available.
What are the Benefits of BHRT
Your health can improve in many ways thanks to the benefits of hormone therapy. The many benefits of HRT are even greater when you select bioidentical hormones over synthetic hormones for your HRT. Synthetic hormones are not the same as the hormones made by the human body. That is why they are called synthetic. On the contrary, Bioidentical hormones are an exact duplicate on the molecular level of the hormones your body makes. That means your body react to them and treats then exactly as they would your regular hormones. That is why BHRT is the safest and most effective form of hormone replacement therapy there is!
Who Can Benefit From BHRT?
Hormonal imbalances are become more common the older you get. That is why anyone over 35 can benefit from hormone replacement. We provide HRT for men, and hormone therapy for women. Who can benefit from BHRT, just about anybody between the ages of 35-65 who is feeling these signs and symptoms:
- Lack of energy
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Sexual issues
- Cognitive difficulties
With Bioidentical Hormone Therapy our anti-aging physicians can put a stop to, and in many cases reverse these age-related issues
How Do I Know if I Need Hormone Therapy?
Since there are many hormones, and they regulate many functions, there can be many symptoms or indicators of low or imbalances hormones. The usual signs include:
- Lack of vitality
- Changes in Mood
- Putting on more weight than usual, particularly an increase in belly fat
- Muscle Loss
- Disturbed Sleep
- Night sweats (women)
- Hot flashes (women)
- Erectile Dysfunction (men)
Do you have these symptoms? If you do, you need to call our San Antonio hormone therapy center and make an appointment for a hormone test.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men
The most important hormone for men is testosterone. Hormone Therapy for men is designed as a treatment for low testosterone, also known as low T. Your testosterone level peaks in your 20s. From then on, testosterone drops at a rate of about 3% every year. That loss of testosterone leads to a number of problems from weight gain to erectile dysfunction. Our male hormone replacement therapy programs are designed to give you back what time and nature take away. “Male menopause” or low testosterone is a very real condition in men. Low testosterone can ruin your performance from the bedroom to the board room! Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for can put you back in the game!
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women
Hormone therapy for women has long been more popular and more available than hormone therapy for men. Women and their doctors are much more familiar with the impact of hormones, and hormonal imbalance on physical and emotional health. HRT has long been used to relive hormone imbalance in women. Hormone treatments, particularly Bioidentical hormone therapy, is still the safest and most effective way to treat the most devastating symptoms of menopause such as night sweats, mood swings, depression and hot flashes. But do not think that hormone therapy for woman is only about curing menopausal symptoms. Any woman over 35, who is experiencing any of the symptom’s mentioned above might benefit from hormone treatments.
Side Effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy
It is normal to be concerned about hormone replacement side effects, but, Hormone Therapy as our hormone doctors prescribe it these days is actually very safe, and has very few side effects. HRT like any drug, device or procedure can present a risk of side effects, but hormone treatments for the most part are more benign than in years passed. That is because we have learned so much more about HRT and have introduced the use of bioidentical hormones. BHRT uses hormones that complete correspond to your body’s hormone receptors. That is why BHRT is so safe. All of this adds up to one thing: you should not miss out on the many benefits of HRT because of a fear of hormone therapy side effects. We know that men, in particular who could benefit from testosterone therapy, avoid it because they have heard reports that testosterone replacement can increase the risk of cancer or heart disease. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact recent studies have found that testosterone therapy can actually reduce your risk of heart attack and cancer.
What Kinds of HRT is Available?
HRT treatment is available in many ways and delivery options. The most common HRT treatments are prescribed as injections, creams, patches, or hormone replacement pellets. Your hormone treatment may include:
- Testosterone – Hormone replacement for men concentrates on the replacement of declining testosterone. We have the latest hormone tests and hormone treatments available for Low-T.
- Growth Hormone – There are many anti-aging benefits of growth hormone therapy. Make any appointment today and see why so many Hollywood celebrities call growth hormone therapy the “Fountain of Youth.”
- Sermorelin – Sermorelin therapy is often used by itself as an alternative to hormone therapy, or in conjunction with hormone therapy. Not a hormone itself, Sermorelin increases the creation of other vital hormones
- Thyroid Hormones – Thyroid hormones regulate many bodily functions. A thyroid imbalance can affect every organ in your body. The thyroid is critical in maintaining energy through close regulation of metabolism and temperature control. HRT treatments often include a hormone test for your levels of thyroid hormone
- Ipamorelin Therapy – Ipamorelin hormone treatment is often used in conjunction with growth hormone treatments. Ipamorelin helps encourage the production of not only HGH, but testosterone and other hormones.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Testimonials
“I’m a guy in my 40s, I go to the gym, but I was stuck, there was those last few pounds, and this gut around the middle that I just could not get rid of no matter what. A friend I know said I should get a hormone test. I did, and found out my testosterone was low. Since I started bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, I feel great, I look great, and I am getting the most out of my workouts again.” — Benny G. – Alamo Heights, San Antonio
I was only in my 40s, and said I can’t be going through “the change” yet, but I found I was losing interest in sex! Plus I was having mood swings, I even had some hot flashes. I thought it was just stress of work and all. It never occurred to me that it could be my hormones. I heard a commercial about Hormone Replacement. I made the call, I have been on the program for only a few months, and I am already feeling the difference.” —
Sarah H. – Stone Oak, San Antonio
“My wife and I have been married over 20 years, but we still enjoy physical intimacy, but lately I was not performing the way I used, or I would like to. She was cool, and not complaining, but I felt self-conscious and that I was not really satisfying her anymore. The hormone specialists here really understood where I was coming from, and the program of testosterone therapy has made a big difference…” — John T. – King William, San Antonio

Hormone Therapy FAQs
What is the difference between bioidentical and synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are custom made for you by compounding pharmacists. They exactly match the physical and chemical structures of the hormones made by the glands of your endocrine system. When used in your Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT), our San Antonio BHRT doctors work with area compounding pharmacies to blend a dosage that tailored to your specific needs. Synthetic hormones are made in big labs and have very different chemical and physical structures than your body’s hormones.
Are Bioidentical Hormones Safe?
Bioidentical hormones are very safe. As the name implies, “bioidentical” hormones are “identical” to the hormones naturally produced by your body. These naturally produced bioidentical hormones are more easily absorbed and used by the body, with far less likelihood of the negative side effects, associated with their synthetic counterparts.
How much does hormone replacement therapy cost in San Antonio?
The cost of hormone therapy can differ from patient to patient based on age, gender, and medical condition. However, you could expect to pay anywhere from $600 per month to about $2500 per month depending on your hormone treatment plan.
How long until I see results using hormone therapy?
There are countless health benefits of Hormone replacement therapy, but it can take time for you to really start to feel the full effect of your hormone treatment. However, you will likely feel stronger, and have more energy in just the he first few weeks. Other benefits may take a bit longer to experience, but within six months or so, you will be a feeling like a new you!
Can hormone therapy be used for weight loss?
Can hormone imbalances make you fat, and can HRT be used for weight loss? A hormone imbalance could impact your ability to burn fat and build muscle, so while not a “weight loss treatment” per se, HRT can help you lose weight when it is combined with diet, exercise, and other positive lifestyle changes.
