Body identical HRT or regulated bioidentical HRT is the safest form of HRT, with the lowest risk of adverse effects. This is what we prescribe at Chelvey Menopause. These hormones are structurally identical to the natural hormones we produce in our bodies.
The British Menopause Society and NHS do not recommend compounded bioidentical hormones. These hormones are not regulated and there is not enough medical evidence to support the safe use of this type of HRT.
