Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Bio-identical hormones are plant-based chemicals that patients can use for hormone therapy.
Bio- Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) allows a patient, physician and compounding Pharmacist to work together to develop the right combination of natural hormones to help balance the normal physiologic levels and keep patients feeling balanced, healthy, and protected.
Why Choose BHRT Over Synthetic Hormones?
BHRT uses natural hormones that have the same chemical structures as the hormones produced in your body. Synthetic hormones may not have the exact chemical structure as natural hormones and may produce unexpected effects depending on individual body chemistry. The side-effects with natural hormones are minimal and have proven to reduce many of the symptoms related to natural reduction of hormones in the human body due to aging. However, as with any prescription, it is best to discuss options with your physician.
How Compounding Works With BHRT?
Bioidentical HRTs are available in different dosage forms, and Doyle’s Compounding staff can customize doses for each patient. Synthetic doses are often limited, but a customized BHRT can regulate patient hormones with greater accuracy.
Are Your Hormones Out Of Balance?
Hormones can have a powerful effect on you. When hormones are out of balance, you can feel like a stranger in your own body. They can affect many areas of your health, including your mood, metabolism, and sexual and reproductive function. Hormone Replacement Therapy has helped many women feel normal again.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is designed for women who are experiencing hormone imbalance with peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms, PMS, or sexual dysfunction. At Doyle’s Pharmacy, we provide natural HRT options that may help alleviate the symptoms of hormone imbalance and restore body chemistry to protect against long-term difficulties such as osteoporosis.

No Two Women Are Alike
At Doyle’s Pharmacy, we understand that no two women are alike. The “one size fits all” approach of mass produced medications does not work for everyone.
Thanks to pharmacy compounding, HRT treatment can be tailored to provide the exact amount of hormones the body needs. We have worked closely with many patients and their healthcare providers to create an individual plan that successfully brings hormones back into balance and closely mimics what the body has been doing naturally for years.
Our pharmacists can prepare hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms, including:
- Topical creams, gels, and lotions
- Vaginal gels, creams and suppositories
- Sublingual drops or troches
Once the therapy is begun, our pharmacists will continue to work with you and your prescriber to make sure the Hormone Replacement Therapy is working correctly, to adjust the dosage if necessary, and to ensure that the medication is just right for you.
It’s your body…why not give yourself the option of a customized, compounded hormone therapy?
