Are There Any Risks With Hormone Replacement Therapy?

 

I’ve been asked many times if hormone replacement comes with any risks, and yes, the answer is there is no such thing as a perfectly safe hormone.

We do need to be aware of possible side effects and risks associated with any of the hormone replacement strategies that we use.

The good news is if we are using bio-identical hormones, these are the exact same chemical that would normally be produced in your body so we can minimize side effects.

We have to monitor your progress to make sure that the dose is appropriate as too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.

As long as you’re carefully monitored and as long as we’re using a bio-identical hormones, we can do this quite safely.
