Estrogen Cream Bio-identical Hormone Therapy
Estrogen cream for bioidentical hormone replacement is the most common form of therapy.
Bioidentical Estrogen Creams - Overview
Bioidentical estrogen creams are made by compounding pharmacies, which are pharmacies that specialize in preparing customized medications for individual patients. The process of making a bioidentical estrogen cream typically involves the following steps:
The pharmacist begins by obtaining the necessary raw materials, which may include one or more types of bioidentical estrogen, as well as other ingredients such as a base cream or oil.
The pharmacist then mixes the raw materials according to a specific formula, which is typically based on the individual patient’s needs and prescribed by a healthcare provider.
The mixture is then placed into a container, such as a tube or jar, and labeled with the patient’s name, the strength and dosage of the medication, and any other necessary information.
The medication is then dispensed to the patient or the patient’s healthcare provider for use.
Benefits of Bioidentical Estrogen Therapy
Estrogen is a hormone that plays a number of important roles in the female body, including regulating the menstrual cycle, maintaining bone density, and maintaining healthy skin and hair. Estrogen replacement therapy is the use of estrogen to replace the body’s natural supply of the hormone in cases where levels are low, such as during menopause or after a hysterectomy.
Some potential benefits of estrogen replacement therapy include:
Relief of menopausal symptoms: Estrogen replacement therapy can help alleviate symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.
Improved bone density: Estrogen helps maintain bone density, and estrogen replacement therapy may help prevent osteoporosis and reduce the risk of fractures.
Improved cardiovascular health: Estrogen may have a protective effect on the heart and blood vessels, and estrogen replacement therapy may help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Improved brain function: Estrogen may have a positive effect on brain function and cognitive function, and estrogen replacement therapy may help improve memory and reduce the risk of developing conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
It is important to note that estrogen replacement therapy is not without risks, and it is important for patients to discuss the potential benefits and risks with their healthcare provider before starting treatment. However, bioidentical estrogen therapy is considered much safer than other forms.
Tips for Appllying Estrogen Cream
Estrogen Cream is a convenient and effective Trans-dermal Method of Administering Bio-identical Estrogen Replacement Therapy.
For optimum absorption, rub estrogen cream on the inner thighs, hips, or abdomen.
We recommend applying estrogen cream to the same area and keeping those areas covered for at least 45 minutes or longer, to avoid necessary transfer to others, especially young children and pets.
Avoid applying estrogen creams to estrogen-sensitive tissues such as your breasts.
By following these simple tips, you will be well on your way toward effectively replenishing estrogen deficiencies safely and effectively.
Note that some doctors and practitioners instruct their patients to apply estrogen creams in different areas each day. There is some theory that it works better that way. It has been our experience that is not the case. Find an area you are comfortable with and one that is unlikely to cross-contamination with another person. Allow your skin to become a reservoir for the estrogen cream.
You may be surprised, but your body can actually adapt to improving efficient estrogen cream transfer by improving receptor size and quantity in a given location.
One thing to keep in mind is to avoid applying to large fatty areas. That may slow absorption and even diminish efficient transfer into the bloodstream, where you want the estrogen to circulate.
The estrogen creams we use are all bio-identical. That means they are molecularly identical to the body’s own estrogen. Unlike dangerous synthetic estrogen alternatives developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, bio-identical estrogen replacement therapy is considered safe and very effective, when normal physiological levels are maintained within optimal hormonal ranges.
