What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As you age, it's possible for your hormone levels to shift, which can greatly impact your mood, libido, energy level, and glucose levels. Hormone changes have several causes, such as menopause, pregnancy, genetics, stress, or medications. Whatever the reason, triple board-certified physician Dr. Janice Alexander can provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help men and women feel energetic again. BHRT works by delivering a consistent, balanced dose of hormones to provide patients with relief from unwanted effects, like fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, and mood swings. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, let the caring team at Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics help. Call our office in Cedarburg, WI to schedule a treatment consultation.

What to Expect with Bioidentical Hormones
Dr. Alexander will begin by reviewing your symptoms and health history. Next, a blood sample will be taken to measure your hormone levels, which will help determine your specific hormone imbalance. This will allow Dr. Alexander to determine the proper customized treatment plan, which will be tailored to your individual needs. Your treatment will either involve taking prescription medications or receiving in-office hormone injections. Over the next few months, Dr. Alexander will monitor the effectiveness of your treatment during a series of periodic follow-up appointments at our office. You should begin to notice improvements in your symptoms within a few weeks or months as the new hormone levels take effect.
Bioidentical hormones FAQs
What are the signs you need BHRT?
Menopause symptoms are varied but can interfere with your quality of life. These include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, low libido, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and unwanted weight gain. Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics can perform a quick assessment and determine if bioidentical hormones are right for your needs.
How quickly will I see results?
It may take some time before you see your menopause symptoms improve. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may notice excellent results within a few weeks or months with BHRT. Either way, our patients in Cedarburg, WI, can expect a dramatic improvement in the way they feel.
Are there any risks to BHRT?
Every medication has some risk, even over-the-counter drugs. However, because BHRT uses bioidentical hormones that are nearly identical to your body's natural hormones, you can expect fewer side effects than traditional hormone therapies. Dr. Alexander can explain all the risks and benefits of treatment in detail.
