There is a variety of reasons to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). There are those who seek BHRT for uncomfortable menopause symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. Others look for relief from the effects of hormonal imbalance – sluggishness, fatigue, and lack of motivation.
Very often the symptoms of hormonal deficiency and imbalance go hand in hand with another major issue: body weight. Therefore, it is only natural to wonder:
Will BHRT make me gain weight? Or will it do the opposite, and once my hormones are balanced, my weight will go down?
