Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

Why do I need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment solution for both men and women struggling with hormone fluctuations. You may benefit from BHRT if you experience:

  • Hair loss
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeplessness
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Limited energy or chronic fatigue
  • Memory loss or poor concentration


Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is even beneficial for resolving sexual dysfunction or performance issues, including low libido. For women, BHRT can improve menopause-related symptoms, including vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse; for men, BHRT can help with erectile dysfunction and low stamina.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are beneficial for a wide variety of concerns related to unstable hormone levels. Your personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan from The Medical Dock can:

  • Restore mental clarity
  • Stabilize your weight
  • Correct sleep problems
  • Improve mood and energy levels
  • Strengthen your muscles and bones
  • Enhance the condition of your nails and hair

If you’re struggling with sexual performance issues, your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan can resolve those problems, too, or at least lessen their severity. These BHRT benefits won’t happen overnight though. It’s important to follow your treatment plan as recommended for optimal results.

When does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy start working?

Your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy solution from The Medical Dock, whether it be creams, medications, or pellets, is tailored to you specifically, so you won’t have to worry about serious side effects. BHRT formularies are derived from all-natural ingredients that provide hormones that have a nearly identical chemical structure as your body’s own hormones. This means you can expect fast and effective relief.

You should start noticing an improvement with your hormone-related symptoms within about two to four weeks, with continuing benefits week after week. Dr. Ahmad schedules you for a follow-up visit after about two to three months to ensure your hormone levels are improving. He can make essential adjustments to your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan as needed at any time.
