Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Services: Personalized Solutions for Hormone Balance

Simply stated, HRT’s main goal is to restore our body’s balance of hormones to optimal levels. As we age our body slowly declines from optimal functioning, including a decrease in the production of hormones. Keeping safety in mind, we at Gulfcare Pharmacy compound with bioidentical estriol, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and pregnenolone.

A benefit of bioidentical hormones is that the chemical structure is exactly the same as what our body produces, many times these are plant-derived, so there are no animal sources used. The body’s cell receptors recognize and use the bioidentical hormones as if our body made them. This decreases the chance of hypersensitivity reactions that may occur from animal-derived products and unnecessary fillers.

  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Other HRT Takeaways:

Progesterone, when used by itself is recommended to be used at bedtime.
