What are Bio-Identical Hormones and How Do they Work?
Great question! Our comprehensive treatment program includes access to Bio-identical hormones, also known as body-identical hormones, which have exactly the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones that are produced by your body.
The Bio-identical hormones are derived from plants (Mexican wild yams), your body absorbs and uses them just as it would if it was still producing these hormones itself. Our tailored treatment programs are available throughout Australia with comprehensive medical care from us whether you live in Bondi or Broome.
Our doctors have many years combined experience in the treatment of menopause so you will be in good hands, with our team providing dedicated patient care support and clinical monitoring every step of the way.
Since the release of the results of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) in 2002 there has been ongoing concern by patients and doctors about the safety of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Over the last 15 years there has been a dramatic shift by patients wanting to use bio-identical hormones more recently termed body-identical hormone replacement treatment.
Studies have provided compelling data that the causative hormone that increases the risk of breast cancer is synthetic progestogen, not the bio-identical micronized progesterone, which has a bio-chemical structure identical to what the body produces naturally.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Women will experience varying symptoms depending on the particular stage of their menopause journey and depending on what symptoms they present with and how they will respond, the duration of treatment is as much individualised as the treatment itself.
As there are different types of hormonal imbalance, treatment will rely upon identifying the particular type and therefore relief can be very fast for a large majority of women. A number of women will require adjustments to their BHRT and more regular reviews with our clinical team to achieve the right balance of medication to eliminate symptoms. For example: a woman who suffers the classic symptoms of menopause where they are deficient in progesterone and oestrogen, relief is usually obtained within 7 – 10 days or even sooner.
Women who have specific menopause symptoms but who are also oestrogen dominant may best be treated without oestrogen and may require other supplementation to deal with their oestrogen dominant symptoms such as bloating and fluid retention. This too can often get fast results but may need a bit more time to get the balance right.
Women in peri-menopause may find that relief is a little longer to obtain. Symptoms are often cyclical and response to treatment needs adjusting according to the cycle. No two women present with the exact symptoms throughout a cycle and our team will ascertain what is required at what time of the cycle so that effective relief is obtained.
Generally, whilst certain relief can be obtained quickly, it may take 4-8 weeks to get to a point where maximum relief is achieved. With our many years of experience, patients can be assured they in good hands. The clinical team work alongside our patients, holding their hand every step of the way.
As stated, every woman is different and should not be treated with a one size fits all approach when it comes to hormones. The reason we believe that bio-identical hormones are the best form of hormone replacement is not only because we believe them to be safer, but that they are able to be produced in small doses that can more easily target specific symptoms. In addition, compounded bio-identical hormones have the extra bonus in which doses are adjustable. Why give more than your body really needs to achieve a desired outcome?
It has been said that the average age of menopause is 51yrs however, menopause refers to the cessation of menstruation (periods) one year prior. That is, a woman who has not had a period for one year is considered menopausal. What our clinic observes is more and more women are suffering hormonal imbalance symptoms years in prior to 51yrs, with the onset of menopause like symptoms in their early to late 40’s. Although, most of these women would fall into the category of peri-menopause, many may also suffer the symptoms of oestrogen dominance.
Women can experience symptoms from between 3 to 7 years. Some are more fortunate and suffer for less whilst others less fortunate can suffer symptoms most of their life.
Is It Safe?
Bio-identical hormones – also known as body identical hormones – are defined as compounds that have exactly the same chemical and molecular structure as the hormones that are produced by your body.
Derived from plants (wild yams), your body absorbs and uses them just as it would if it was still producing these hormones itself. Bio-identical hormones are believed to be safer*.
