In males, there are symptoms related to male menopause, called Andropause, which include loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, inability to cope with stress, muscle weakness, weight gain, depression and loss of self-esteem.
However, if treated by one of our physicians, much improvement to the above symptoms can usually be expected. The pre-menstrual woman will notice an improvement in most of her PMS symptoms, including improved moods, improvement in her PMS-related pain and cramping and better temperature tolerance. The post-menopausal woman will notice control of her hot flushes and night sweats, less aches and pains and less vaginal symptoms. Men will notice an improvement in self-esteem and libido, as well as a sense of well-being.

The administration of bioidentical hormone replacement is accomplished either through a topically-applied cream or orally by pills. We recommend a cream for estrogen. This method avoids swallowing the hormone which then goes through the liver to be changed to a bad form of estrogen. Oral administration of estrogen can cause weight gain, increases triglycerides, increase depression, elevate liver enzymes and increase sex hormone binding protein and consequently reduce available testosterone.Progesterone and DHEA can be swallowed as a capsule. Testosterone should be taken as a cream.
There is also encouraging news for BHRT. In a study of 80,377 women by Fournier in 2009, there was no increase in breast cancer in women taking estrogen and progesterone compared to a 69 percent increase in women taking estrogen and progestin (the synthetic hormone). In 2005,Campagnoli also stated that synthetic progestin increased breast cancer risks.
