Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy right for me?

Nearly everyone experiencing imbalanced hormones can benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. To know if it’s right for you, Dr. Lafferty checks your vital signs, weighs you, completes a physical exam, and orders blood tests. He tailors each hormone treatment to your personalized needs to ensure outstanding and long-lasting anti-aging results.

What happens during bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

What you can expect during hormone therapy depends on the specific type of treatment you undergo. 

During hormone pellet insertion, Dr. Lafferty cleans and numbs tissues near your hip or upper buttocks before making a tiny incision. He places small pellets beneath your skin and uses medical tape to close the incisions. There’s no downtime afterward, and he can replace the pellets every 4-6 months or as needed. 

Other forms of hormone therapy include creams, gels, patches, injections, oral forms, and vaginal applications for women. 

What should I expect after I begin treatment?

Dr. Lafferty follows up with you periodically to ensure your hormones stay balanced and you achieve the best results possible. It’s also important to exercise regularly, eat nutritious foods, minimize stress, and get plenty of sleep.
