Bioidentical/Body-identical HRT

Bioidentical, or body-identical HRT is HRT made from a plant source, composed of the exact structure to that of ovarian hormones
before the advent of the menopause. Studies suggest it’s the safest form of HRT from a breast, cardiac and VTE perspective. Body-
identical HRT is a regulated product, licenced by the HPRA and different to compounded bioindentical hormones which are
unregulated products not privy to the strict quality checks done on licenced forms of HRT.
