Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy uses medications containing female or male hormones to replace declining levels through menopause in women or andropause in men. Hormone replacement therapy is used to treat common menopausal/andropausal symptoms, improving quality of life with long term health benefits.

Our hormones are special chemicals made by various glands in the human body. They act as messengers, telling other parts of the body when to perform their functions. Hormones control almost all of the tasks in the body. When they are out of balance, various symptoms occur.
What are Bioidentical Hormones
Bioidentical hormones are hormones extracted from plants (especially soy and yam) that are very similar to those produced by the body. The common hormones that are matched are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy safe?
We use tiny hormone pellets (small tablets) that are placed under the skin on the back of the hip every 3-4 months. This method has proven to be very safe, as it bypasses liver metabolism, which is often a root cause of some side effects with hormone treatment. Risks for any medication always depend on your age and health. Dr. Datta’s in-depth consultation will assess your risks, benefits, and alternatives.
