Frequently Asked Questions

What are the main advantages of bioidentical over synthetic hormone replacement?

Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the body's own hormones, meaning they bind more efficiently with hormone receptors. They are dosed based on individual needs. Synthetic hormones are one-size-fits-all.

How are bioidentical hormones administered?

Common methods include creams/gels, oral capsules, sublingual drops, pellets inserted under the skin, patches, and injections. Renew Clinic will determine the optimal delivery method for your needs.

Are there any risks or side effects?

There are minimal risks when administered at proper doses based on testing. Slight bruising or irritation can occur at the site of delivery. Estrogen dominance symptoms can occur if estrogen is dosed too high relative to progesterone. Renew Clinic carefully manages dosage to avoid adverse effects.

How soon will I feel results and how long do they last?

Most patients notice improvements in energy, sleep, mood, sexual function, and menopause symptoms within the first 1-2 months. The longevity of treatment results depends on the hormone, delivery method, and ongoing dosage adjustments as the body's needs change. Most patients can maintain results long-term through monitoring and modification of their treatment regimen.
