United States

In the United States, millions of women (and many, many men) depend on compounded hormones to live normal, productive, healthy lives. Their first-hand stories speak directly to the power of this important therapy. As the FDA considers removing access to compounded hormones, their voices must be part of the conversation.

“Compounded hormones have restored vitality to my life”

Since menopause, I have dealt with weight gain, low energy, low libido, and anorgasmia. The topical cream, carefully customized by my specialty pharmacy, based on my individual biochemical lab results as assessed by my physician has turned my life around. I’m only 65, and based on my family lifespans I have quite some time left on Earth. I hope very much to have my remaining years kept as vibrant as possible, and these compounded hormone creams enable my daily quality of life and marital relations to be strong, purposeful, and pleasurable. If my prescription is taken away, I’m uncertain what will take its place and do not know if something else will work for me. Why mess with a good thing?

Please don’t restrict compounded hormone treatments made by specialty pharmacies. I haven't heard of nor experienced any problems myself with a compounded hormone product. If the FDA restricts bio-identical hormones to people who are allergic to mass-manufactured products, it will affect and discriminate against way more women than men. This is absurd, irrational, and unconscionable. Please don’t take away my choices!

Pharmacists argue that compounded hormones are highly regulated by each state’s board of pharmacy and accreditation companies. The pharmacist who makes my product is a consummate professional who takes the time to answer any questions and explain details when I need it. I've met no one more competent and excellent at what they do. PLEASE DO NOT RESTRICT COMPOUNDING PHARMACIES.

“Compounding saved my sanity and more…”

I was dealing with a lot of other health issues and crazy life crises when the hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, and migraines got out of control. Compounded bio-identical hormones (in very small doses-not much needed!) changed my ability to function, get control of the other issues and ultimately save my marriage because I was able to have sex again and not be in the corner crying every other minute.

I have benefited from this medicine greatly, I know many other people who have as well. This attempt at yet another overreach by the FDA is highly unwelcome.

“Excellent.”

I have been using compounded bio-identical hormones for nearly three years. I've had no ill effects and have benefitted greatly from them. They helped with my night sweats and insomnia. My muscle tone has returned, and my body fat has decreased. They also improved my focus and my ability to control my emotions.

I cannot imagine going without this beneficial treatment, and I strongly agree with those who have commented that this overreach by the FDA into my personal health decisions is unwelcome and unacceptable.

“The benefits have been a welcome surprise!”

I started taking testosterone pellets and estradiol patches at the age of 62 due to a diagnosis of osteoporosis.

The benefits of this HRT have been a welcome surprise. I no longer feel sluggish and have more motivation at work and at home. The inflammation in my joints has subsided and my daily dose of Ibuprofen is no longer needed. My ability to recall names and dates has improved. My marriage has also benefited as I have a renewed interest in my husband.

“Bio-identical hormone therapy”

I have been on hormone therapy for 7 years which has helped me tremendously! I have been able to maintain healthy functioning both mentally and physically which would not have been the case without this. I am also a practicing medical provider and am able to work full time at age 62 when many of my colleagues are burned out. I am vigilant with mammograms and Pap smears. I wholeheartedly take care of myself and my patients! Making this unobtainable is a hardship on everyone.

“Life Changing”

I am a 52-year-old woman. I started on compounded hormone replacement therapy over seven years ago, which has been life-changing. I am so grateful to my provider and compounding pharmacist that they were able to work together to come up with the right formulation for me. One size fits all commercial products are not the answer, as each woman is very unique. Please do not take away compounded hormones. Thank you for your consideration.

“I need these hormones to keep me healthy and functioning”

I was experiencing episodes of my blood pressure skyrocketing, feeling depressed, and unwell. It was suggested that I get my hormone levels checked. My hormones were extremely low and needed to be supplemented. Unfortunately, I am unable to take many traditional pharmaceuticals so the only option was a compounded cream. For the last few years I have used this product and had my blood pressure return to normal, my depression stopped and my health returned, and was able to resume all normal life and activity. Using this product is essential for my well-being.

“Bio-identical Hormones are ESSENTIAL!!”

I had a total hysterectomy at 43 and was then given a synthetic patch to wear for menopause by my gynecologist which gave me horrible side effects & worsened my menopause symptoms. I later saw The Today Show talking about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. I then sought out a GYN & compounding pharmacy that knew of BHRT. I have been on that ever since with NO side effects, I feel so much better, no belly fat, no libido issues, no mood swings, etc. I am now 65 and CANNOT go without and certainly don't want to. PLEASE support the compounding pharmacies. One size DOES NOT fit all So why would a gynecologist give everyone the same patch?? Everyone's hormones are differently deficient.

“65 year old RN. Compounded Hormones saved my happy life.”

I have been on hormone therapy since I was 50 years old when the doctor prescribed me the one size fits all pill. I still had symptoms, but I plowed through about ten years of pills, patches and whatever they could throw my way for a myriad of symptoms I will spare putting down, just to say, I was not living my best life. But, I might add, NO labs were done to dial in my imbalance. I just tried different doses and endured the speech at every doctor visit about how I would die of a stroke or some such horrible demise. To me, to live an unbalanced, crying, sweating, bleeding, depressed and anxious life, (sorry I had to do it) was a fate worse than death. Then it happened.
I went to my neighbors for dinner, and one of her guests told me about pellets after hearing how miserable I was. I ran to her provider, who ran my labs and carefully titrated the proper dose into me. I started feeling normal after about a week. My symptoms are GONE! And they have been gone for the last 4 years. If not for pellets I don't know where I'd be, also every single friend I have that needs hormone therapy, I have told, and they are all well and happy.
PLEASE DONT RUIN MY LIFE and ban this life-saving treatment. And I know medicine as I have been a chemo RN for 31 years.

“Compounded Hormones”

Since practicing bio-identical hormone replacement, my health has improved drastically, and it has become a win/win situation. I feel great.  Our bodies contain more than one hundred different types of hormones which pour into your bloodstream at the rate of thousands of billions of units a day. Hormones regulate your heartbeat and your breathing. Hormones make men and women who they are. Hormones put you to sleep at night and they wake you up in the morning. They control your blood pressure, build up bone, maintain muscle tone, and lubricate joints. Hormones govern growth, they make the body produce energy and heat. Hormones burn fat. Hormones govern the menstrual cycle and allow pregnancy (and birth) to occur. They fight stress, prevent fatigue calm anxiety, and relieve depression. Hormones make and keep memories. Hormones maintain the correct level of sugar in the blood and tissues. They resist allergic reactions and infections. They soothe the pain. hormones control your sex drive, virility, and fertility. They stimulate your brain and your immune system. For all those reasons I am passionate about the subject of compounded hormones being under a very real threat. Compounded hormones are essential to a woman's health during and after menopause. Please, do not discontinue the use of compounded hormones.

“Taking bio-identicals for 15 years with no problems”

I've been taking bio-identical hormones for 15 years with no problems. "Regular" hormones also carry a risk. I have a good low-risk family history so am comfortable with slightly elevated risk. My gynecologist and I make sure I am tested regularly with mammograms and Pap smears. I love the flexibility I get with my compounding pharmacy!

“Compounded testosterone extended my life”

I was diagnosed with primary ovarian insufficiency and as part of my hormone replacement therapy, I was prescribed compounded testosterone. It has helped me with my mood, energy, muscle tone, and endurance. Compounded testosterone is an essential part of my treatment and is integral to retaining my vitality as a young mother. My children are 4, 8, and 10, without the addition of testosterone I was losing strength and my ability to be an active mother. Compounded testosterone should be available to everyone suffering from primary ovarian insufficiency, replacing estrogen and progesterone is not enough. Please don't take my medicine from me!

“For 16 years, BHRT has been crucial to my functioning, to my mental health, and to my physical health”

In 2006 I was seriously depressed, could hardly get off the couch. Wellbutrin and Zoloft were ineffective. After two weeks on a 50 mg bio-identical compounded progesterone, my depression was gone, because progesterone deficiency was the cause of my depression so replacing it was the only solution. I'm chemically sensitive so I avoid conventional pharmaceuticals and their side effects. I have not had a hypersensitivity reaction to and absolutely zero side effects of bio-identical compounded hormone replacement therapy in the 16 years that I've been taking them. With BHRT, symptoms indicate a need for dosage adjustment only. After menopause, I added estradiol. I am one of the few perimenopausal women I know who sleeps well all the way until morning because I have enough progesterone, don't gain weight because I have enough progesterone, am continent of urine because I have enough estradiol, and have full cognitive functioning, few wrinkles, an physically active life, and good muscle mass and skin thickness because my hormones are balanced as stably as pre-menopause. Hormonal balance is evidence-based as crucial to male and to female health because hormones affect the entire body. PCPs and Gynecologists need to promote bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for most of what ails women. I seemed to need progesterone for heavy bleeding and for depression as early as my teen and my young adult years.
