What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at Lux Health includes a virtual evaluation, hormone testing, and treatment with medications delivered right to your doorstep. Lux Health offers hormone and testosterone replacement therapy plans for men and women, all from the comfort of your home, office, or another private location.

A specialty compounding pharmacy develops tailored synthetic hormones that are just like the hormones you naturally produce. Your body accepts and metabolizes the newly introduced hormones.

What are the hallmark signs of hormone imbalance?

The common signs of hormone imbalance include:

  • Weight gain
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Lack of energy
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Increased body fat
  • Depression
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Thinning hair
  • Skin changes

If you notice these or other unusual symptoms of hormone problems, schedule an evaluation at Lux Health. 

Risk factors for developing hormone imbalance include a family history of hormone issues, aging, and carrying excess body weight. Stress, poor diet and exercise habits, and having an underlying medical problem may also increase your chance of developing unbalanced hormones. 

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for hormone replacement therapy, complete an online evaluation at Lux Health. Home testing kits (delivered to your home) containing a return shipping label to send to a lab can detect hormone imbalances.

Elizabeth reviews the lab results with you, discusses your medical history, and completes a virtual exam as needed. She discusses your treatment options and tailors one that is best suited to your needs.

What should I expect during bioidentical hormone replacement?

When your hormone replacement treatment arrives, you can begin treatment. It’s important to use hormone therapy treatments exactly as directed by Elizabeth. 

During the following few days, weeks, and months, you may experience more energy, thicker hair, easier weight loss, and improvements in sex drive, sexual functioning, skin, body composition, and mood. 

Follow up with Elizabeth virtually to discuss your treatment plan and complete periodic home-based hormone testing to ensure your hormone levels remain balanced.

Schedule an evaluation at Lux Health by phone or request one online today to determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
