When you first start your therapy, your hormone doctor will begin with the lowest dose possible that is consistent with your goals. The doses vary widely based on individual circumstances. Getting hormone therapy “just right” often takes time, patience, and repeated testing. A difference in just a few milligrams or micrograms can be the difference between success and failure, and that’s what makes compounded BHRT so unique. When pharmacists can individually tailor your dose down to the microgram, it’s easier to achieve success at the lowest possible dose.
