Bioidentical hormones have the exact molecular structure of the hormones that a woman’s body produces naturally. I prefer the term human identical because they are biochemically identical to the hormones found in a woman's body. The beauty of this is that the body cannot tell the difference between these hormones and the hormones that the ovary makes. This is why they are often referred to as Natural hormones. I prefer the term human identical because these hormones are not foreign to the body. It is natural for bioidentical hormones to be in the human body. Bioidentical hormones are available at compounding pharmacies by prescription only. They are custom made for each patient based on the individuals needs. Bioidentical hormones help with hot flashes, night sweats, moods, memory, energy, libido, skin, hair loss, and vaginal health.
