What You Need to Know about St Petersburg Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy from St Petersburg’s Own Expert!

As an author of nationally recognized research on bioidentical hormone therapy, Dr. Hermann has been treating men and women for 9 years in Tampa Bay.  Dr. Hermann recommends hormone replacement therapy when non-hormonal and natural therapies do not work in treatment of menopausal symptoms including:

  • hot flashes
  • weight gain
  • sleep disturbance
  • “brain fog”
  • poor libido
  • vaginal dryness
  • skin changes

The medical community is learning that some forms of hormone replacement, called bioidentical hormones, have less side effects and less danger than standard hormones.  Less risk does not mean no risk…the risks along with the pros and cons of St Petersburg Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) are always discussed with patients.
