Bioidentical Hormones

In August of 2012, ACOG (The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) issued its Committee Opinion on the use of compounded bioidentical hormones.

*  The is no evidence showing the superiority of bioidentical hormones over conventional hormone replacement therapy.

*  There are additional risks to bioidentical hormones. They vary in purity and potency, and do not have effectiveness or safety data.

*  Underdosing and overdosing are possible.

*  Salivary, serum, and urinary testing to individualize treatment is not supported by the evidence.

* For women seeking benefits of hormone therapy, conventional therapy is preferred over compounded bioidentical hormone therapy.
