How Quickly Will I Feel the Effects of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Dealing with fatigue, brain fog, and lost vitality? These and other signs of aging can disrupt your regular activities. Thankfully, patients today can regain their health in older age with the help of bioidentical hormone therapy. 

Declining hormone production is one of the key reasons behind the noticeable effects of aging. Bioidentical hormone therapy helps eliminate these effects by replenishing and rebalancing hormone levels in the body. If you decide to move forward with this treatment, one of your first questions may be: How quickly will it start to work?

In this article, we’ll answer this question and describe what you can expect after starting bioidentical hormone therapy.

How Long Does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Take to Work?

Most patients start to experience relief from their symptoms within two to three weeks of starting bioidentical hormone therapy. In a small number of cases, patients notice a difference in just one to two days! 

Results from bioidentical hormone therapy will continue to improve in the weeks and months following the start of your treatment. Most patients should feel the full effect of the treatment after three months with relief from symptoms like fatigue, sexual dysfunction, decreased cognitive function, mood swings, weight gain, hot flashes, and more. 

Of course, bioidentical hormone therapy is a wholly customized treatment, so the results will vary from person to person. Additionally, Dr. Shemesh at Mind Body Spirit Care closely monitors patients’ progress and conducts regular follow-up hormone panels, ensuring that the therapy is working properly. The goal is to achieve the desired effects with the lowest possible dose. 

Bioidentical hormone therapy is a safe, trusted method for warding off the unwanted symptoms of aging, allowing you to take back control of your health. To learn more, book an appointment at Mind Body Spirit Care today!
