Sex Hormones

All those are valid questions, and times have changed where you can openly discuss these symptoms with your healthcare provider.  Here at MediSpa At Choto, our physician assistant will conduct a wellness exam and questionnaire to see if you are a good candidate for BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT.  We will give you options to age gracefully and energetically.  During the consult, the PA will draw blood work and send it to the lab.  Results get back in 3-5 days and then you can discuss options for hormone replacement.  You can choose to do compounded creams/gels, injections, or pellets.  You will start feeling better within days and it continues improving for months.

What are BIOIDENTICAL hormones?

Your body produces hormones that act as messengers to tell various parts of your body when and how to work. They control nearly all your bodily functions, from your brain to your digestive system to your sex drive. As you age, your body starts to produce fewer hormones, and you experience symptoms that make you feel less like your younger, energetic self.

While bioidentical hormones are made in a lab, they have the exact chemical and molecular structure as the hormones your body produces naturally. This differs from other lab-made hormones that work by binding to estrogen receptors to make them more reactive. As a result, your body can’t tell the difference between naturally occurring hormones and the bioidentical ones you introduce.

Some people think hormone replacement therapy is only for women approaching or going through menopause, this treatment is appropriate for both men and women. Both men and women will experience a drop in their naturally occurring hormones.

Patients who receive customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy commonly report an improved quality of life.

  • Stronger sex drive
  • Better mental clarity
  • Decreased symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Increased sense of wellbeing
  • Improved ability to lose fat and build muscle
  • Thicker hair growth
  • Healthier skin
  • Reduced bloating
  • More energy during the day
  • Ability to sleep more soundly at night
  • Fewer hot flashes and night sweats
