The hormones most commonly referred to as Natural Female hormones, are those female hormones that are primarily produced and involved in the female reproductive system. These “natural” hormones play crucial roles in the development and functioning of female sexual characteristics, menstrual cycles, and fertility.
The terms Natural and Bio-identical Female Hormones are generally used interchangeably. The only difference is that bio-identical hormones can be made in a lab and are exactly identical to natural hormones except that they have been made in a lab.
All of these hormones interact with each other in a complex feedback system known as the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Gonadal Axis to regulate the menstrual cycle and maintain female reproductive health. It’s important to note that hormone levels and interactions can vary throughout a woman’s life, depending on factors such as age, pregnancy, and menopause.
At Advanced Wellness Medical we use estrogen (particularly Estradiol) and progesterone as the Natural or Bio-identical female hormones for HRT.
