Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has changed the manner in which women age. In the past, women died more frequently in childbirth; PMS was an imaginary problem; and menopause, with all of its age related infirmities, was just another stage of life to be endured and lived with. Today women do not have to accept hormonal imbalance as a ‘fact of life’. Natural hormone replacement therapy has helped improve not only the quality of women’s lives, but also how long they live them.

Studies have shown that pellets are far more superior to conventional hormone replacement therapy for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance. Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches. They also help with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency and frequency. The goals of BHRT are to alleviate the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in production of hormones by the body and to bring the body back to hormonal balance. Another goal of BHRT is to imitate the body's natural processes as much as possible, thereby eliminating most of the unwanted effects and long-term risks of the traditional synthetic hormone-replacement therapies.
When describing replacement hormones, the word "Bio-Identical" is used to refer to the structure of the hormone molecule, not its source. When analyzed biochemically, the molecules of estrogen, progesterone and other hormones produced from wild yam precursor molecules are found to be absolutely indistinguishable from those the human body produces itself. Thus the crucial variable defining "Bio-Identical" is not the origin of the hormones, but its chemical structure.

Hormone replacement implantsAn extremely effective form of bio-identical hormone therapy is subdermal pellets. For women who are having difficult menopause transitions due to problems with absorption, marked fluctuations in hormone levels or who have lost their ovaries surgically at a young age (perhaps due to endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease), hormones in this form can restore a quality of life and function which has been lost. Economically, this is more efficient than multiple medical visits, time lost from work, or the suffering of severe menopausal symptoms such as disturbed sleep, depression, anxiety, fatigue, muscle aches, hot flashes etc. It cannot be overemphasized that patients who are inadequately replaced will have many more visits for symptoms such as heart palpitations, migraines, urinary dysfunction, visits for sexual dysfunction, chronic aches and pains. These patients will probably have many unnecessary tests for arthritis, for chronic fatigue syndrome, for lupus, and many other complaints.
