Relief, not pain

The typical manufactured hormone solution isn't suitable for everyone. 

It’s the weekend before the July 4th Holiday and am seeing everything around me burning up with a heatwave. My lawn is dying, the trees are struggling, and don’t mention my garden. We’ll see if it survives. On top of that, we are supposed to light fireworks and burn things even more? I think I’ll opt-out.

That is what a patient of mine would like to do, opt out of the burning. She suffers from vulvodynia and experiences burning redness and pain every time she tries to treat the condition using a commercial, manufactured product. The many wetting agents, emulsifiers and preservatives in commercial creams cause her skin to react and burn. She wants the active hormone ingredient, but not with all the “fire-fuel” it is embedded in.

This is where pharmaceutical compounding comes in. We can make a product that uses more natural sources, like cocoa butter, to carry the hormone and that won’t cause her skin to burn. We can make it in a customized strength to match her needs, and we can adjust it as needed.

I had a great chat with her provider who was excited we had options and then spoke with the patient, who, after feeling despondent that a solution could finally be found, sounded a little hopeful.

Moments like this make compounding struggles worth it.

Hear their stories, in their own words. Protect their access to compounded hormones.

On this page, we can only touch on the data that demonstrates the importance of compounded hormones to the lives of millions of women in this country. While the decision to take this vital therapy from patients and physicians might be profitable for the big pharmaceutical companies, it will be disastrous for the millions of patients that those same pharmaceutical companies cannot serve!

We encourage the appropriate committees in both the House and Senate to hold hearings on this critical issue.
