Hormone Replacement Therapies: Exploring Latest Trends & Options


Menopause can bring a wave of changes, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be a powerful tool to navigate them. Dr. Okojie at Okojie Wellness in Vancouver, Washington, is dedicated to helping women find relief from menopausal symptoms and achieve optimal hormonal health. This blog post explores the latest trends and options in HRT.


Understanding HRT

HRT replaces hormones your body no longer produces during menopause. This can alleviate common symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood swings. There are two main types of HRT:


  1. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT): BHRT uses plant-derived hormones with a similar structure to those your body naturally makes. Dr. Okojie can personalize BHRT plans to address your unique needs. Common BHRT hormones include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA. These can be delivered in various forms like pills, creams, gels, or pellets.

  2. Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy: This type of HRT uses synthetic hormones, chemically different from human hormones. These are typically derived from animal sources or produced in a lab. Examples include conjugated estrogens (Premarin) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (Provera). Conventional HRT comes in various forms like pills, patches, gels, or vaginal rings.


Latest Trends in HRT

  • Focus on Individual Needs: There's a growing shift towards personalized HRT plans tailored to each woman's specific hormonal profile and symptoms. Dr. Okojie's approach reflects this trend.

  • Bioidentical Hormone Options: The demand for BHRT is increasing, driven by the belief that these hormones may be better tolerated.

  • Dosage and Delivery Methods: New research explores the most effective HRT dosages and delivery methods for optimal results with minimal side effects.


Important Considerations

HRT is not a one-size-fits-all solution. While effective for many, it may not be suitable for everyone. Consulting a qualified healthcare professional like Dr. Okojie is crucial to discuss your medical history, individual needs, and potential risks and benefits of HRT.
