    I have been on Bioidentical Hormones for quite some time…but a few months ago I was told by the pharmacy that I was unable to get my Bi-Est compound due supposely the company was closed down…so they switched me to Estradiol which was to replace my c-Bi-E Cap and c-Progest cap oil….I have noticed just in a short time the difference in my energy….which has dropped tremendously….and my weight has gone up.
    I also take c-Dhea Gel and C-Testosterone….

    What can people do that were on the Bioidentical Hormones?
    Appreciate your input.
    Thank you,

      Hi Barbara,

      There are a number of compounding pharmacies available. University Compounding Pharmacy is one of our preferred partners – they are consistent in their product and quality. It’s important that you combine that with a highly qualified expert in bioidentical hormone therapy who can monitor your hormone levels.

      Sincerely,
      Barbara at BodyLogicMD
