Bi-Estrogen/Progesterone/Testosterone Cream, 30mL
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the replacement of deficient hormones with hormones that are chemically identical to those that hte body naturally produces, but which have declind due to aging or illness. HRT has improved the quality of life for millions of women and men who suffer from hormonal imbalance. The ideal process for achieving hormonal balance includes an assessment of hormone levels and complete evaluation of signs and symptoms, followed by replacement of the deficient hormones in the most appropriate dose via the most effective route, and monitoring to fin tune the therapy. Estrogens, progesterone, and androgens are just the "tip of the iceberg" when it comes to achieving hormonal balance. Thyroi dand adrenal function, as well as nutritional status, should also be evaluated and treated when indicated.
This three-hormone cream contains Bi-Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone.
Estrogens - are a group of related hormones, each with a unique profile of activity. They are often prescribed in combination to re-establish a normal physiologic balance. The use of one or more of these hormones is referred to as Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT). Estrogens have been shown to be clinically effective for the treatment of menopausal symptoms; postmenopausal problems including vaginal atrophy, dryness or infections, painful intercourse, and various conditions of the urinal tract; and in decreasing the risk of osteoporosis and colorectal cancer.
Progesterone - is commonly prescribed for perimenopausal women to counteract "estrogen dominance" and minimize the risk of endometrial cancer in women who are receiving estrogen. It is preferred by women who had previously taken synthetic progestins, according to a Mayo Clinic study. This may enhance the beneficial effect of estrogen on lipid and cholesterol profiles and exercise-induced myocardiac ischemia (reduced oxygen supply to the heart muscle) in postmenopausal women in contrast to progestins, such as medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA).
Androgens - Testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) may be added to a woman's hormone therapy to alleviate recalcitrant menopausal symptoms and further protect against osteoporosis, loss of immune function, obesity, and diabetes. A decline in serum testosterone is associated with hysterectomy, and there are age-related gender-independent declins in DHEA and DHEA-sulfate. Additionally, ERT may cause relative ovarian and adrenal androgen deficiency, creating a rationale for concurrent physiologic androgen replacement.

Topical Hormones: Gels and Creams
Topical hormones come in a variety of dispensing devices. The most common devices include a pump, large syringe, Topi-Click, and single dose packets. When dispensing your hormone gel/cream it is important to understand how much you are supposed to apply.
Here is a breakdown of how standard dispensing devices measure:
Pump: 4 pumps = 1 ml
Topi-Click: 4 clicks = 1 ml
Syringe: Syringes are typically measured in increments so you can measure the amount you dispense by pushing the plunger 1ml. Syringes designed to dispense topical hormones do not require a needle, the cream is dispensed through a nipple at the bottom of the syringe. The syringe plunger is pushed down to dispense the cream in measured doses. Syringes typically have lines marking 1ml measurements and come in various sizes to accommodate dosage amounts. If you need assistance reading the measurements on the syringe contact Defy Medical.
How to convert your hormone strength from % to milligrams.
Sometimes pharmacists prefer to note the strength of the hormone cream in percentages rather than milligrams (mg). For example, it may be written on the label: Testosterone 10% gel 30ML. This is simply a different way of writing the strength. Here is how it works:
To convert the % into milligrams simply move the decimal to the right one time.
5% = 50 mg
10% = 100 mg
20% = 200 mg
Using testosterone 10% gel 30 ML as an example, we can interpret this to mean “testosterone 100 milligrams (mg) per milliliter (ml). There are 30 ml in the order which means you have thirty 100 mg doses. If you are prescribed to “apply ½ ml every day” this means you are applying 50 mg and your 30 ml supply will last 60 days. Remember, the cream is 100 mg per ml and you are applying ½ ml (50 mg). Contact Defy Medical staff if you need clarification on your dosage instructions.
Store your topical hormones at room temperature. Keep in the original closed container in a dark, cool, and dry place away from children. Discard unneeded medicine.
Be sure to follow the dosage prescribed by your doctor located on the medication label.
