Compounding for Women

Are your hormones out of balance? Hormonal imbalance in women can lead to peri-menopause and menopausal symptoms, including:

  • Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Moodiness
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Decreased libido
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Night sweats
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Infertility
  • Post-partum depression
  • Weight gain
  • Endometriosis
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful sexual intercourse

These conditions affect millions of women. And in response, the drug industry has introduced a huge number of creams, patches, and pills to treat these symptoms. However, each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, and compounding pharmacists understand this fact. Working together with her healthcare provider, a compounding pharmacist can help a woman start and maintain a hormone replacement regimen that brings her hormones back into balance and closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years.

HRT can also be used to treat a variety of other conditions, such as premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis, and dyspareunia (painful sexual intercourse). By using the appropriate dose of hormones, a women can be relieved of many of the most troubling symptoms and improve her quality of life. The hormones we use are of natural origin and have the same structure as our body’s natural hormones. Ask your health provider about hormone therapy designed specifically for you.
