Bioidentical estrogen and progesterone come in various forms, the most popular being pills, patches, and creams. It is often combined with testosterone and or DHEA since these hormones are often low as well. It is customary to start a dosing regimen that mimics what your body used to produce. It’s commonly called the physiologic dose. This helps avoid any negative side effects and produces a baseline to work off of in case levels need be adjusted to your comfort.
The easiest method for hormone replacement when first starting is with a hormone cream, which is applied to the skin. It’s convenient, easy to apply and the cream absorbs easily through the skin. It also allows for any dosing adjustments, as it is very easy to apply a little less or a little more. Pills and patches do work very well once you have established a dose that works for you.
