Bio-identical Hormones Are The Only Form I Tolerate

When I started to go through perimenopause my gynecologist offered a commercial contraceptive that caused my symptoms to worsen. When on the synthetic progestins and combo estrogens I had panic attacks, hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia. My doctor prescribed me bio-identical progesterone cream that they were able to tailor for me. My symptoms improved 100% after taking it. I needed what was considered "low dose" compared to what is commercially available. Commercial forms of these meds are all high doses and if you are like me with a COMT gene polymorphism then the high dose of hormones causes severe panic attacks and makes the symptoms of perimenopause worse. I hope that whoever is reading this can understand that we need options that are not ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL. Some of us need an option that can be tailored down. Please consider this when evaluating the need for alternatives vs. commercial hormones.

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.

Preserve compounded hormones.
