“Feeling human again”
My body functions best and I finally feel human again after taking compounded estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. I have worked my entire adult life as a medical professional taking care of others and going above and beyond for them . I should be able to choose what is best for my body. This is sickening especially after I have worked so hard for others!
“Compounded Testosterone has dramatically improved my life!”
Not long after turning 50, I realized that I was always very tired, and weak, had lost muscle mass, and had virtually lost my libido. My primary care physician put me through a barrage of tests. But said nothing wrong. Two years later, I mentioned this to my urologist. He tested my hormone levels which came back at 1/4th the level they should have been for a man of my age, size, and weight. My urologist prescribed a combination of Compounded Testosterone and OTC DHEA. Within less than 30 days, I was feeling so much better. The difference for me, my wife, and our young children are immeasurable. He checks me twice per year to make sure they are at the optimal levels for me. Today, at 63 I am still going strong. Please do not jeopardize the availability of compounded hormones for me and the millions of others who benefit from them.
“Compound Therapy has Saved My Life!”
I know hormone therapy saved my life in many different ways! A year ago, I started Hormone Pellet Therapy along with supplements, Progesterone, and Thyroid medication. I was 40 pounds heavier! I had hit a wall and could not lose the weight! My knees were starting to fail on me and working a labor-intensive job as a custom picture framer at 59 years old I knew I had to find a solution! This treatment has boosted my attitude, and my energy and my family and friends have truly seen a huge change not only physically but mentally! I tell everyone about my progress with hormone therapy. It is Important for the health of women and men in the United States. I stand tall in this medical treatment and will always fight for hormone therapy and for my health! Because YES it has SAVED MY LIFE! Physical activities I do besides custom picture framing your memories is belly dancing class, weight-lifting class, and paddleboarding now at the age of 60 years old!
“I feel back to normal.”
At least 10 years ago I had my Thyroid removed, and spent another 7 years feeling terrible, hardly able to get out of bed with no energy. Then I was diagnosed with Addison's Disease and things got worse. I then found a Doctor to work with me and was able to put me on compound hormones. It was LIFE CHANGING. I finally felt good with lots of energy and for the first time in years, I felt like myself. Without compounded hormones, none of this would have been possible for me and I would still be in bed and feeling terrible. Compounded Hormones cannot be taken away.
“Bio-identical compounded hormones have been a lifesaver for me.”
I had a radical hysterectomy 11 years ago. I have been taking bio-identical hormones after the surgery. I could not live without them. They are a blessing from God!!
“Helped me return to a productive member of society!”
The right combination and individualization of hormone therapy saved my life and helped me to become a more productive member of society. Betting being able to get the right formulation was critical to balancing my hormones during the pre-menopausal and now post-menopause stages of my life.
“Never experience Menopause”
Compounding is a safe, non-invasive and smooth process for your body and mind.
I started 2 years before menopause and I didn't experience any symptoms like hot flashes, dry eyes, or mood changes. Now 7 years after I feel more energetic and focused.
I was unable to think and concentrate before I was able to get compounded testosterone. They no longer offered estradiol. Compounding is not the problem.
“I feel human again...”
I had been going to my regular doctor for years and telling him that something was wrong and off. They kept telling me there was nothing wrong. I was tired all the time, not wanting to socialize, super unhappy with myself and life. I was yelling at my husband and kids constantly for no reason at the drop of a hat. My cycles were terribly painful and irregular. I found a new doctor that specializes in hormones. With the use of compounded hormones, I feel like I have my life back. I get much more restful sleep, I am no longer unhappy with myself and I don't snap at my family. My cycles are also so much better as I no longer have pain and am very regular.

“So much better!”
I was getting perineal tearing, not with sex, just wiping in the bathroom! Between using a hormone cream vaginally, and taking a hormone troche, I no longer have to deal with this painful situation. Please don't limit pharmacists from using compounded products which help so many issues other drugs don't.
“These hormones have helped my menopause journey.”
I have been taking bio-identical hormones for about 6 years. It has helped me tremendously as s woman navigate the ups and downs of my hormones through menopause. It would be devastating to see these compounding pharmacies go away. They serve a huge purpose to many patients!!
“Mood swings, anger, lack of energy, hopelessness, fatigue, sleepless - this was my life.”
Menopause Misery. All of the characteristics women encounter during menopause were life for me. My days and nights were filled with lack of energy, fatigue, sleepless nights, severe hot flashes, and uncontrolled mood swings.
I've been on compounded bioidentical hormones for three years now and since beginning them, I have returned to feeling "normal", or like a human being. The first thing that changed after beginning them was my sleep, which went from being awake every two hours to a full night's rest. And then the hot flashes subsided, almost completely. My mood has turned from despair to hope again, and life is good instead of drudgery.
This therapy has been & continues to be life-changing for me.
“My PMDD was treated effectively with compounded progesterone”
I have a premenstrual dysphoric disorder. I have been treated with antidepressants, and birth control pills, and have been offered a complete hysterectomy. I have found relief in compounded progesterone. Instead of feeling unwell and unable to function, I feel like a normal human being. To remove the ability of women to have access to this compounded hormone would be unethical, negligent, and corrupt.
“They saved my life and marriage!”
In 1998 I began Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, I was depressed, losing hair, and having menopause symptoms. The treatments have been effective and I would recommend compounded meds to anyone. Thanks for keeping the option available to women and men.
After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I tried prescription drugs with little results. I started going to an MD who was more interested in health than sick care. Through several compounded formulas and lots of blood work, he prescribed the right one for me which was not a one size fits all. That was about nine years ago. I got my life back and no longer have the symptoms. Please do not stop the compounding pharmacies that have helped so many.
“I depend on compounded thyroid for my quality of life!”
As a Lymes Disease patient who has hypothyroidism, I have to take thyroid medication to have energy and stay healthy. I’ve been on Levoxyl, Synthroid, and several other synthetic t3 and t4 medications and nothing worked for me to decrease my hypothyroid symptoms until I discovered natural desiccated thyroid. I have a lot of allergies and armor didn’t work for me but nature thyroid did until it was taken away. I now rely on a compounded natural desiccated thyroid that is made without allergens which have given me back my energy, vitality, and life. I’m afraid that without it my health will decline again and I will be at risk for heart disease, debilitating fatigue, and inflammation pain.
I’ve been using bio-identical hormones for 14 years and it was life-changing for me. I had hot flashes and body flushing that happened every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I could not sleep and it was affecting my work and my relationships. I would never go back. I will never use the synthetic version primarily because they must be broken down in the liver. The cream I use is absorbed through my skin sidestepping my liver. Better for my body.
“Postmenopausal hormone therapy”
After menopause I found that my libido had dropped significantly, my mood was down, and I had pain in my lady parts, caused by dryness, just from walking. All of these symptoms went away with my compounded hormones. I have been using these hormones for about 8 years. Why on earth would you vote to take these away from us, other than to harm us? Please defend our freedom.
“Compounded hormones are miles better than the regular ones”
I started taking compounded hormones when I went through menopause about 14 years ago. I felt the benefits immediately - greatly reduced mood swings, no more hot/cold flashes, increased muscle strength, and firmer skin. They are expensive, so I tried regular hormones for a while to see if I could save money. A few days after taking the "regular" hormones, I had to go off of them, because I felt like I'd been hit by a truck. I went back to compounded hormones and I'm still on them and will be for as long as I can. Quality of life is important. Don't take that away from me.
“My HRT cream is amazing”
I am a 65-year-old female who has been using compounded HRT cream for 15 years. My entire health would change without my HRT cream which is designed just for me. Aging is hard enough, without my HRT cream I will be miserable. Thanks for listening.
