Women’s Health

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 / Perimenopause

Perimenopause 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.


Also 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 Syndrome

The 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 Women

Bioidentical 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.

Additional Conditions

Autism Spectrum Disorder

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.

PTSD Treatments

The primary treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder is psychotherapy to help reverse negative beliefs and give stress management skills and support during recovery. Appropriate medications can further help to improve symptoms.

Autoimmune Disease

There’s no cure for the vast majority of autoimmune diseases, but there are treatments that may help manage symptoms. Low dose naltrexone, which is only available as a compounded drug, is becoming a popular choice for treating autoimmune diseases.

Other Chronic Conditions

Belmar compounds medications in a variety of dosage forms and strengths to help treat a variety of other chronic conditions including mood and concentration issues, sleep problems, general nutrition support, Immune system support, and more.
