Remember being a teenager? As your hormones start changing during puberty, your weight fluctuates, and your emotions swing all over the place. Increases in hormones make going through adolescence a challenge for many. The challenges of hormonal imbalances aren’t just for teenagers. As you get older, your hormone levels can fall out of sync.
Men and women undergo natural hormonal changes due to aging that can lead to undesired side effects like weight gain, mood swings, or loss of libido. And, plenty of other factors can lead to your experiencing a hormonal imbalance at any time in your life.
When your hormones fall out of balance, hormone replacement therapies address the problem at the source, supplementing your natural production to bring your hormone levels back within normal range. Hormone replacement therapies can supplement testosterone, estrogen, and more, for both male and female patients.
At BCS Medical of Bryan, Texas, our expert care team offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Bioidentical hormones have several benefits above and beyond their ability to rebalance your hormones. Here’s what you need to know.
Why use bioidentical hormones?
Our bioidentical hormones mimic the chemical structure of your body’s own natural hormones. When your body receives a BHRT dose, it knows exactly what to do with the bioidentical hormones. Lessen your concerns about side effects by using bioidentical hormones with BCS Medical.
We offer a full range of BHRT services, including treatments to address low levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), cortisol, and more. Both men and women can potentially benefit from BHRT.
Hormone replacement therapy and you
Hormone imbalances create uncomfortable or disruptive symptoms. You might notice changes in your appetite, metabolism, sexual libido, and genitals due to a hormone imbalance.
If you think you might be suffering from a hormone imbalance, let the team at BCS Medical conduct a hormone profile assessment to see if you could be low on key hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, or cortisol.
Benefits of rebalancing your hormones

BHRT effectively treats conditions including:
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Fibroids and endometriosis
