Help! I'm 41 and Already Having Hormone Related Problems
(Chicago, IL, USA)
I have been having some hormone related problems recently. My doctor recommended bioidentical hormone therapy. I have heard of hormone replacement therapy, but not the bioidentical hormones.
Can you tell me a little about their history? I am from the USA. Are they used in other countries? How long have they been used elsewhere? What are the short and long-term side effects?
I haven’t used the birth control pill because I can’t tolerate the side effects. Will I have a similar problem with bioidentical hormones? My mother stopped using hormone replacement because of the side effects.
Can these help her now, or is it too late for her. Any information you can share on bioidentical hormones would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for providing such an informative website.
