Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
Dr. Karon has worked with bioidentical hormones since the beginning of her practice. Our office works with all the reputable compounding pharmacies in Kentucky and even some from outside of Kentucky. We have become very experienced in treating not only post menopausal patients but also infertility related hormonal issues and hormonally related to libido problems. Our office also receives referrals for some transgender patients.
Because the safest way for hormonal administration is transdermal (not oral) in order to avoid pass through the liver, we also use pellets subcutaneously for those patients that don’t have good blood levels from compounded creams. Most of our patients are very satisfied with pellets, especially since not a lot of physicians offer this option.
