Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopausal symptoms has been around since the 1990s. That is over 30 years of research! Yet, despite its popularity and the vast amount of studies on HRT, controversies remain about its use.  

Newer studies have shown the beneficial use of HRT even in younger and early postmenopausal women. Despite these recent advancements in hormone therapy, public opinion has not changed that much yet, resulting in critical negative consequences for women’s health and quality of life.

Here, we debunk the common myths about HRT, specifically bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Here in Miami, NuLife Institute offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women with imbalanced hormone levels.

Why do hormone levels drop or become significantly unbalanced?

An imbalance of hormones can develop at any stage of life, including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and aging.

There are various reasons for hormonal imbalance, including:

  • Perimenopause and menopause
  • Chronic stress
  • Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
  • Underactive or overactive thyroid
  • Poor diet and nutrition
  • Obesity
  • Anorexia
  • Other medical conditions

Even as young as their 30s, millions of women suffer from hormonal imbalances or deficiencies.

Women suffering from hormone imbalance could experience a complete change in their lives using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

What are the most common myths about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not an entirely new concept. It is based on the traditional HRT but uses plant-based hormones, not synthetic ones.

Amidst its popularity and beneficial effects on women, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is hounded by common myths. Here, we debunk these myths!

  • Myth:

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can cure heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and breast cancer.

  • Fact:

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not proven to prevent or cure any of these diseases.

Instead, with correct usage, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is associated with a slightly lower risk of these diseases, especially in symptomatic women. 

Bioidentical hormone therapy is most effective for symptomatic women under 10 years of menopause or those under 60 years of age.

  • Myth:

Only women need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy since they experience menopause.

  • Fact:

Both men and women can benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

As men age, they experience hormone changes, also known as andropause or “male menopause.” Andropause refers to a general decrease in testosterone levels among middle-aged men.

Changes in hormone levels can impact a man’s physical, emotional, and mental well-being, which can impact the quality of life. Symptoms of andropause include low libido, poor bone density, decreased muscle mass, chronic fatigue, and sleep disturbance.

  • Myth:

The only effective treatment for menopausal symptoms is oral HRT.

  • Fact:

The world of hormone replacement therapy has seen new improvements in the past few years.

Nowadays, oral bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not just the only type of HRT. Neither is oral therapy the only effective treatment for menopausal symptoms.  Aside from new types of HRT, there are also newer hormone formulations that effectively relieve menopausal women from their symptoms.

Aside from oral pills, there are now transdermal and topical delivery routes, such as skin patches, gels, pellets, and creams. 

  • Myth:

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy causes blood clots, heart attacks, strokes, and cancer in women.

  • Fact:

Like any prescription medication, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has risks and benefits. Some women undergoing BHRT may be more at risk of getting these conditions.

That is why it’s essential to have highly trained and experienced doctors in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
