Hello, latillery!

Thank you for posting.

For the benefit of our readers, bioidentical hormones are defined as man-made hormones that are very similar to the hormones produced by the human body.

More information on this and menopause below:



I am sorry, but we are not a referral service. We can only provide you with information. You can use Google to search for doctors in your area who specialize in BHRT. Twenty pounds is a lot of weight to gain in 3 months. Have you spoken to your doctor about your concerns? If not, that would be a good first step. So you know for sure what is going on and can discuss your options.

Weight gain during perimenopause and menopause is quite common but no less frustrating. Keep us updated on how you are doing.

Hello Helena,

Thanks for your prompt response. Yes. I’ve spoken with my doctor about the weight gain without any resolutions from her. I’m seeking another doctor regarding this concern.
