Bioidentical hormones - how to get?

MY go to books on natural hormones are by Suzanne Somers . No woman has to suffer with this part of aging anymore. I am looking for a doctor who will work with me in DE. Sex in The City 2 has funny bits dealing with this issue.

Re: Newbie: Bioidentical hormones - how to get?

Hi Damia,

What you need to do first is google a compounding pharmacy in your area. Usually there are some that pop up. Next, call the pharmacy and ask for a pharmacist to talk to that can recommend a doctor in your area that does prescriptions for bioidentical hormones. With that, you should be on your way!

Hope this helps,
Missy

Re: Newbie: Bioidentical hormones - how to get?

Hi
I use bioidentical hormones and have for the about 10 years ..I have always had trouble finding a doctor who would write a prescription for them and have had to change doctors a few times to make that happen ..I get mine online through a compounded pharmacy that specializes in female hormones .. and for me has been the right thing and makes my life worth living..I'm 65 and healthy and hope to stay that way ..good luck in finding a doc that will work with you ..I have actually had to get the pharmacist to call my doc and explain how to write it...

Re: Bioidentical hormones - how to get?

From what I have read if you take estrogen without progesterone it can increase your chances of getting uterine cancer because estrogen causes the lining of the uterus to thicken and without progesterone it will cause a build up of cells. Also if the dose of estrogen is too high the same thing could happen but the good thing about biohormones is the dose can be ajusted to fit your needs, so that rarely happens. Please don't quote me on this because I am just going on what I read not what I have been told by a doctor. I hope this helps you some.

Re: Bioidentical hormones - how to get?

BC could stand for birth control if it is talking about a pill. It could mean because if used the right way in a sentence. It could also mean biochemical if your talking bioindentical hormones. I hope this helps.
