Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) for Women

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a popular option for millions of women who want to improve their health and lifestyle during the changes of life that occur with pre-menopause, perimenopause, and menopause. BHRT is also a very effective treatment for those who suffer from premenstrual symptoms (PMS).

Signs of hormonal imbalance include:

• Hot Flashes
• Night Sweats
• Memory Loss
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Low Sex Drive
• Vaginal Dryness

• Fatigue
• Urinary Incontinence
• Fibroids
• Mood Swings
• Weight Gain
• Hair Loss
• Endometriosis

Individualized Programs 

Fortunately, bio-identical hormone therapy can help patients find relief from the symptoms they are experiencing from imbalanced hormones. At the Florida Center for Hormones & Wellness, we create customized, medically sound programs that include bio-identical hormone replacement, fitness and nutrition plans.

Individual female hormone replacement treatment programs include:

  • Treatment by Dr. Carrozzella, who is highly trained in Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Full review of symptoms, including personal and family medical history
  • Comprehensive hormone level testing
  • Customized programs to alleviate specific symptoms based on personal medical history and lab result analysis
  • Compounded hormones and supplements
  • Nutritional and fitness recommendations and support

Treatment

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men is available in many forms. Through an evaluation of your unique symptoms and a thorough review of urine and blood tests, Dr. Carrozella will make a recommendation that is best for you. Recommended treatment options include:

Pellets - An implant of Bio-identical Hormone is placed underneath the skin in a concealed area. The implants are small and they are inserted under local anesthetic. Pellet therapy can last for up to 6 months between insertions.

Creams – This treatment is usually applied to the skin; however, in some circumstances, the creams can be inserted directly into the vagina for specific treatment reasons.

Tablets – Tablets are a common and effective way to administer BHRT. Tablets are taken every day by mouth. While tablets have gotten a bad reputation in some circles, that reputation was imcorrectly applied to true Bio-identical estrogen. The bad reputation is applied to estrogens obtained from horse urine and chemicalized synthetic progestins that are NOT used by Dr. Carrozzella.

Follow-Up

Dr. Carrozzella will schedule appointments to continually monitor your hormone levels and to review the alleviation of your symptoms. Treatment will be revised as necessary until the optimum balance is achieved.
