Bio-identical Hormone replacement is an option available to patients looking for an alternative to the conventional HRT. The term used to describe Bio-identical refers to the structure of the hormone being identical in molecule to those found naturally in the human bodies.

HRT can be given in forms of transdermal cream, gel, troches (sub-lingual lozenges), capsules or pessaries.
