What is estrogen?

Estrogen is a hormone that naturally occurs in female and male bodies with many functions. In women, estrogen is most commonly associated with reproduction - it prompts the menstrual cycle and develops the female body’s secondary sex characteristics. However, in both sexes, estrogen is responsible for many facets of bone health, cholesterol metabolism and the thickness and collagen content of skin. In men, one form of estrogen called estradiol is responsible for the formation and maturation of sperm.

How do estrogen levels change as we age?

In women, estrogen levels are reduced as they get older. Hormone levels in women drop most dramatically during perimenopause (immediately before menopause) and during menopause. In fact, after female menopause, many men may have higher estrogen levels than women! If a woman has had a radical hysterectomy including removal of both ovaries, her estrogen levels will struggle significantly-- the organ primarily responsible for estrogen production is the ovaries. Adrenal glands also produce some estrogen, as does fat tissue.

What is BHRT?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT is a form of treatment that has existed in the United States for many decades. Synthetic hormone replacement therapy is very commonly used in women to help the transitional state of menopause. Synthetic hormones are typically derived from pregnant mare urine. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses plant based hormones whose structure is very closely identical to the natural hormones within the human body.

What conditions may estrogen pellets be able treat?

Estrogen pellets are primarily prescribed to treat the effects of menopause. Estrogen pellets may also be able to treat chronically low mood, poor bone density and improve cardiovascular health.
