Bioidentical hormones are medications made from natural chemicals extracted from soy and wild yam plants. The molecular structure of the hormones is identical to those produced by the human body.
Some bioidentical hormone products are available in prescription form through your local pharmacy, but most of the hormones are custom-mixed to meet the specific needs of the individual patient. These medications are available only through a special compounding pharmacy. Compounding allows your gynecologist to prescribe hormones in the exact dosage and combination you need.
