Bioidentical hormones, also known as biogeneric or biosimilar hormones, are plant-based forms of hormones that are identical in molecule structure to the hormones naturally produced by the human body. As such, they can be used to help regulate hormone levels and reduce the symptoms of menopause and other hormonal conditions.
Like any medical treatment, however, there is potential for bioidentical hormone therapies to have side effects. It's important for people considering these treatments to be aware of the risks associated with them so they can make an informed decision about their health.
Some of the potential risks associated with bioidentical hormone therapy include:
While there are potential risks associated with taking bioidenticals, there are also several benefits that should not be overlooked when deciding whether or not to use them as part of a health plan. Most importantly, many patients find that taking bioidenticals helps them to manage their symptoms better than conventional drugs do with fewer side effects overall. In addition, because they are plant-based rather than chemically derived like some synthetic medications, many consider them a more natural option.
