Women's Health Q & A
What type of care does an urgent care clinic provide for women?
Bioidentical hormones are a natural form of hormonal supplements extracted from yams and soy that have the same chemical structure as prescription hormones.
Hot flashes, sleepless nights, and irritability are common symptoms that affect women going through menopause. Due to the concerns surrounding hormonal therapy as a treatment for menopause, you may feel leery about adding them to your health regime.
As a clinic that combines mainstream and alternative medicine, we understand the concerns women may have about taking prescribed hormonal medication and offer bioidentical hormones as an effective alternative.
How can bioidentical hormones help me?
Like hormone therapy, bioidentical hormones relieve menopausal symptoms. Women report that these more natural hormones improve hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and energy levels. Bioidentical hormones may also help prevent the weight gain that often accompanies menopause, as well as additional protection for bone health.
Bioidentical hormones are available in different forms, including injections, creams, pills, patches, and gels, and are customized to meet your specific hormonal needs. The doctors at Fast Access Healthcare will help you determine the form that best suits your needs.
Are bioidentical hormones safe?
Bioidentical hormones have been tested by the Food and Drug Administration and are considered safe. Nearly 40% of women on hormonal therapy use bioidentical hormone treatment.
