The goal

Our Core Principals

Monitoring pathology to optimise outcomes in menopause and relive symptoms of hot flushes & mood change.

How Do We Achieve This?

Check out what hormones might be prescribed for your menopause through compounded HRT by your doctor and what symptoms they correlate with!
Estrogen

Estradiol (E2) & Estriol (E3)

Estrogen acts on every part of the body, so it’s no wonder we feel like we are in crisis mode when levels start to drop during menopause. When incorporated in compounded HRT preperations, it may be trying to:

  • Reduce hot flushes
  • Maintain of your metabolism
  • Maintain bone density (prevent osteoporosis)
  • Improve quality sleep
  • Increase good cholesterol and lowering bad cholesterol
Progesterone

Micronised Progesterone

Progesterone is another major hormone in the body that has a vital role in various bodily functions. When progesterone levels begin to decrease during menopause, some of the following symptoms may be seen:

  • Hot Flushes
  • Night Sweats
  • Anxiety and mood swings
  • Insomnia & poor quality sleep
  • Weight gain & water retention
  • Depression
Testosterone

Only small amounts!

The use of or addition of testosterone in bioidentical HRT is used more regularly than most would expect, but only in very small doses. Testosterone is generally used to relieve symptoms including:

  • Fatigue
  • Dry & thinning skin
  • Incontinence
  • Low Libido
DHEA

Dehydroepiandrosterone

DHEA is a precursor to estrogens and testosterone as well as an anti-inflammatory. Supplementation is often used in conjunction with other hormones or in and IVF setting and aids in:

  • Suppressing cortisol activity
  • Preventing systemic inflammation
  • Protecting the CNS cortisol from damage
  • Boosting levels reduced by adrenal fatigue
