One of the biggest assets to bio-identical hormone replacement is that they are available in a variety of dosage forms. Since bio-identical hormones are formulated by compounding pharmacists, each dose can be compounded to each person’s specific needs, whereas synthetic hormones are limited to a few doses. Transdermal creams and sublingual (under the tongue) lozenge/troches or drops are usually the most effective ways to administer these hormones to provide more consistent absorption into the body. Slow release capsules, vaginal creams and suppositories are also commonly used. We invite you to discuss these options with our pharmacists.
