For decades, women have turned to hormone replacement therapy to treat adverse vasomotor symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats. Women can spend up to one-third of their lives in a hormone-deficient state, which further contributes to such undesirable effects as mood changes, increased risk of osteoporosis, and decreased libido.1 Bioidentical Hormones may be compounded in a variety of dosages and dosage forms, creating many options for women interested in compounded hormone therapy (CHT).
The Endocrine Society has defined compounded bioidentical hormones as “compounds that have the exact same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are produced in the human body.”2
