A thorough, well balanced  review of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, which concludes that “Bioidentical hormone therapy supported with sufficient trial data—including estrone, 17β-estradiol, and progesterone—offers a favorable adverse effect profile over HRT and is equally effective in managing menopausal symptoms. Further studies are needed in order to prove the safety and efficacy of estriol, DHEA, and testosterone in women. Additionally, long-term studies are needed to assess the safe duration of use of all BHT.”
