What are the Brands of Body Identical HRT?
Body identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a form of hormone treatment in which hormones that are identical to those produced by the human body are used to replace those lost during menopause. Body identical HRT is also known as ‘bioidentical’ or ‘natural’ hormone therapy, and can be tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
There are a number of different brands available on the market for body identical HRT, ranging from cheaper generics all the way up to heavily-marketed prescription medications. Some of these brands have been around for many years and have built up an enviable reputation for quality and safety; others are more recent entries into the field and may offer some advantages over their competitors.
The most popular brand names of body identical HRT include Femoston, Femarelle and Kliogest. All three brands produce a variety of creams, gels and tablets that contain estradiol, progesterone or both hormones combined in either synthetic or bioidentical forms. Femoston is one of the oldest and most established brands, offering products with both artificial estradiol and progesterone hormones; it has been available on the UK market since 1978. Femarelle is newer than Femoston but has quickly become an important player in the sector due to its high level of patient satisfaction – with research showing its products improve symptoms associated with menopausal transition more effectively than other treatments. Kliogest is another relatively new entry into the bodyidentical HRT sector; this brand also contains estradiol and progesterone but does not contain any dextroprogesterone (D4P), which may provide fewer side effects without compromising efficacy.
In addition to these three mainstream brands there are also several smaller companies who produce lower cost alternatives for generic body identically compounded hormones, such as NaturoFemme, PlusPharmaDSL and Earlysynergy Ltd., among others. These generic products generally offer lower prices while still providing quality care that meets with EU regulations regarding bioidentical hormones production standards.
When considering types of bodyidentical HRT it’s important to talk to your doctor about your individual situation as every patient’s requirements will be unique; they can also advise you on whether or not a particular brand would be suitable for you based on their experience with that product or similar ones. Alternatively we recommend you consider BHRT Pro Center which offers patients access to world class specialist practitioners who guarantee excellent results while ensuring stringent safety protocols are adhered too at all times.*
