Bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body; matching the body’s natural hormones molecule by molecule. They are referred to as “All Natural” because they are extracted from soy and yams. Bioidentical hormones are processed by a compounding pharmacist. Once the plant-based hormone is processed, its structure is identical to the estrogen, progesterone, and androgen hormones produced naturally by one’s body. This is why our bodies can metabolize them naturally as it was designed to do, with minimal or no bioidentical hormones risks or side effects.
Since the first time I saw Dr. Archer and started on my hormone treatment, things may get me down for a day, maybe two, but that’s it. I started on my new hormones on June 1, 09. I have almost as much energy as I did in my 30’s. I can’t wait for the 20’s!! Today, I walked for the first time and I joined Weight Watchers one more time, but for the last time. I’m going to outlive Suzanne Somers!!! I’m handling the rejection which is something I’ve never been able to handle and I’m starting to really like me. I’m starting to paint again and starting to make my house beautiful which is why I got into this business 21 years ago.

It is likely that your body will once again start producing hormones at optimal levels again once a decline in levels has been established. You may need to maintain healthy hormone levels with BHRT for the rest of your life.

Irritable Men Syndrome or Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS) is the term used to describe the mood swings in men. Although Irritable Male Syndrome is most often caused by high stress and/or low testosterone; high estrogen levels can also cause irritability in men.
