The process of aging is a wonderful one, and your hormones levels need to be balanced in order to help you live your best life. As an individual gets older, hormone levels can become unbalanced and significantly drop, often affecting their physical and psychological health. To fight against the effects of menopause and andropause, the innovative process of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can improve your chances of feeling rejuvenated and healthy! It is part of a line of hormone replacement treatments that can improve your overall well-being, energy levels, and libido that can help you lead an optimal lifestyle.
At Evolved Medical, our team is ready to answer any questions you have about BHRT and the processing of adding new hormones to your body. We will go over how quickly BHRT can provide results and how fast it can take to restore your body’s hormone balance. We will also explain the best length of time to stay on bioidentical hormones to get you feeling like yourself again.
How Quickly Does BHRT Work?
BHRT is usually recommended and done when there is a serious imbalance of hormones in your aging body. As for how quickly it can work and deliver results, this depends on the patient and their health history.
BHRT treatments include testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen that are re-introduced to your body. These hormones are applied through pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections, depending on your preference. Our medical team can discuss your medical history and daily lifestyle and help you create a viable BHRT treatment plan for your success.
After someone has undergone BHRT, they can expect to feel changes 1-3 weeks after starting the treatment. Some individuals can feel changes as soon as 1-3 days, but it generally takes up to 8 weeks to feel the full effect of the treatment. Again, how quickly BHRT works for your body depends on your body’s anatomy, the dosage of hormones, and lifestyle habits. With continued treatments, patients can expect the effects to last for about 4 months at a time before signs of andropause or menopause settle in again.
We strongly encourage a healthy diet and lifestyle for patients who choose to undergo BHRT. While the effects can come fairly quickly for some, we recommend adopting a measured approach and making adjustments only when needed.
How Long Does It Take To Restore Hormone Balance?
Everybody is different and it may take some time for some to regain their balance hormone levels. For men, BHRT helps to restore hormonal balance by increasing their energy, mood, cognitive function, and libido. For women, it may improve their weight loss, memory retention, sleep issues, and hot flashes, along with other symptoms of menopause.
Overall, the purpose of BHRT is to optimize your aging body instead of simply overcoming the challenges that come from old age. The bioidentical hormones added into your body are used to mimic the healthy dose of testosterone and estrogen, which can lead to boosts in energy and faster metabolism. So, if you are looking to gain more muscle mass or perform better sexually, BHRT can help you balance the lost hormones in your body. However, it can take time for some to fully realize the treatment’s benefits, but we will help you monitor your condition.
How Long Can You Stay On Bioidentical Hormones?
We recommend staying on bioidentical hormones for around 3-4 months when the effects of the treatment begin to wane. This is because at the beginning of treatment we will need to conduct frequent testing to make sure each hormone component made is in proper balance with your natural ones. If you’re feeling unwell and there is an imbalance, we will immediately pause the process and adjust the hormone levels. If everything is in proper balance and you’re feeling good, we will schedule fewer checkups that may take place only once a year.
Overall, we recommend healthy adults around or over the age of 40 as an ideal BHRT candidate, as well as anyone who is experiencing symptoms of andropause and menopause. If you have an existing medical condition, please speak with your doctor before consulting with us. For example, if you have a history of cancer, strokes, or blood clots, you’re most likely not a good fit for the treatment. We want to make sure the treatment is safe for you and does not interfere with your condition or medication.
