Bioidentical Hormones for Women

Aging gracefully comes from good daily habits like eating well, moving, and managing stress, but sometimes we all need a little extra help. If you feel “off” or “not yourself” lately, your hormones may be part of the problem.

Have You Noticed These Changes?

  • Being more irritable, edgy, and short- tempered.
  • The onset of brain fog.
  • Feeling that you’re no longer “aging gracefully.”
  • That the reflection in the mirror doesn’t match the inside.
  • A loss of happiness and enjoyment in life.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

If any of the above resonates with you, see The James Clinic about receiving bioidentical hormones, which are chemically identical to those your body produces.

We can evaluate your hormones and determine if they may be contributing to your symptoms, which most commonly are fatigue, irritability, low libido, vaginal dryness, and painful intercourse.

Hormones That May Be Causing You Trouble

When we evaluate women for hormone-related symptoms, we consider three main hormones in addition to the thyroid hormone. These are estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone.


Levels of estradiol, the primary estrogen hormone, decline during menopause.

Benefits may include:
● increased bone density,
● increased cardio-protection,
● the prevention of skin aging,
● and keeping the mucosal lining strong.


Progesterone plays an important role in female reproductive systems. It supports menstruation and helps maintain the early stages of pregnancy.

It can help with reducing:
● hot flashes,
● night sweats,
● trouble sleeping,
● and mood changes, like anxiety and depression.


While testosterone is often thought of as a male hormone, women have it too, just in much lower doses.

It can help:
● increase muscle mass,
● alleviate joint pain,
● boost one’s libido,
● improve memory and concentration,
● and assist in recovery after intense workouts.


Don’t hormones cause hormone-related cancer?

There are many forms of hormones available. The hormones implicated in the increase in breast and ovarian cancer were synthetic hormones, which we do not use in our treatments.

What are some of the side effects?

Our treatments are conservative to minimize the risk of side effects. Yet, its side effects may occur.

When taking testosterone, women could see acne, weight gain, swelling, increased hair growth, and issues at the site, such as bleeding, bruising, or infection.

With estradiol or progesterone, women could notice vaginal bleeding, tender breasts, slight edema, or weight gain.

Are these treatments FDA-approved?

The ingredients in the pellets are FDA-approved. Yet, specific products we use are not because they are compounded.
