    Bioidentical hormones isn’t really a scientific term. It usually refers to hormone replacement therapy that uses hormones that are supposed to be identical to the body’s natural hormones and/or are tailored to the individual (compounding). It’s a fashionable term in American alternative medicine.

    There is no evidence that it’s better than ordinary hormone replacement therapy, and it can have additional risks because there’s not a lot of supervision on what’s in them, and because some people think that they are “natural” and therefore safe, and so are less careful about using them.

    Hormone replacement therapy is supposed to be helpful in preventing hair loss in menopausal women, but messing with your hormones can of course also cause hair loss
