Things I've Learned: 
 

What are hormones?
 

I never thought anything about hormones. I heard them referred to when speaking about teenage boys doing dumb things, "It's just their hormones."  Or when a women was being hysterical. "She's so hormonal." But I didn't know what hormones actually were or what they did. - Marcella Hill

 

Hormones are chemicals that manage different functions in your body. Hormones send signals to your blood, organs, skin, muscles and other tissues to tell them what to do and when to do it. Hormones are essential for life and your health.
 

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)?

I didn't know anything about hormones until I went to a hormone specialist. I didn't know there was a difference between HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and BHRT ( Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) - Marcella Hill

 

Bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones naturally made by your body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) provides an alternative to hormones that are synthetic. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is made by compounding pharmacists in customized dosages based on the individual needs of the patient.

Available forms of Hormone Therapy:

  • Pills

  • Injectables

  • Lozenges (Troches)

How Fast does BHRT work?

I wish after my first treatment that it would've worked on the drive home. And I could've walked in the door and immediately wanted my partner. But, that's not how this works. - Marcella Hill

Most will notice a change after 3 months. It can take 6 months for full benefits to be noticeable.
Everyone will have their own journey. Give yourself time to figure out what feels optimal for you.

 

Marcella's personal timeline: 

  • Day 2 - I slept through the whole night

That continued nightly

  • Day 8 - I noticed a generally happy energy throughout the entire day

  • Month 3 - I notice that my body aches had significantly diminished and I started running again!

I was feeling alive! But the sex drive hadn't quite kicked in.

  • Month 4 - Second treatment. Sex Drive kicks into overdrive! My body heats up when he walks in the room.

  • Month 5 - No more need for lube during intercourse. 

  • Month 6- Just going into it, will keep you posted HERE

What are the side effects of BHRT?

I didn't think about this. I figured if I'm willing to put Diet Coke and Movie Theater Popcorn into my body with no hope that it will make me feel alive, then put this hope of a better existence IN ME RIGHT NOW. - Marcella Hill

  • Facial Hair - (I have an extra chin hair to pluck (worth shaving a beard to feel this good)

  • Water Retention - (I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar to help with water retention)

  • Weight Gain - (I've gained a few pounds, but now that my body doesn't hurt I can actually care for my body properly)

  • Breast Tenderness 

  • Acne

 

Does Hormone Therapy Cause Cancer?

I didn't know the enormous concern about cancer linked with hormone therapy. After speaking with several doctors and BHRT providers, it was still not clear as to where this belief came from.
This is the best I have seen it explained: 


Dr. Peter Attia explains

why we think Hormone Therapy causes cancer

"It's hands down the biggest screw up
of the entire medical field in the last 25 years."

"I won't be able to think of a bigger act of incompetence
than what happened with the women's health initiative in the late 1990's"

- Dr. Peter Attia
