If you are a woman who is experiencing or concerned about any of the conditions on this page, start a conversation with your doctor. Together, you can decide if a compounded prescription might be a good treatment for you.
Menopause / PerimenopausePerimenopause and menopause have a wide range of symptoms.
Menopause is the normal transition in a woman’s life when her menstrual periods end, typically in her late 40s to early 50s. The ovaries are no longer releasing eggs and have also dramatically slowed hormone production. Perimenopause is the stage leading up to full menopause, as the ovaries gradually make less and less estrogen. Perimenopause usually starts in a woman’s 40s but can start as early as her 30s.
HypothyroidismAlso called low thyroid or underactive thyroid.
A condition in which your thyroid gland, a small butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck, doesn’t produce enough of its normal hormones. When it’s healthy, your thyroid produces two different hormones: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These are used by cells throughout your body, primarily to regulate metabolism. Not having enough of these hormones will slow down your body’s functioning.
Hashimoto’s SyndromeThe most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States.
When you have Hashimoto’s, your immune system attacks and damages your thyroid. If there’s enough damage, your thyroid can’t make enough of its important hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which regulate metabolism in cells throughout your body. Similar to how a lightbulb can’t shine without electricity, your thyroid can’t properly produce thyroid hormones without iodine.
BHRT for WomenBioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
When a woman’s hormones are out of balance, hormone replacement therapy may help relieve a wide array of different symptoms, both physical and emotional. BHRT may alleviate symptoms by treating the cause, not just the symptoms themselves.
Although ASD typically lasts a lifetime, treatments can improve a person’s symptoms and ability to function. Some treatments for ASD are behavioral and educational; however, medications may also be prescribed to help.
