Dr. Shira Miller answered:

What are the side effects of bioidentical hormones?

Less than HRT.

Open-uri20130407-26300-daar7h
Bioidentical hormones are hormones produced in a laboratory to be identical in chemical structure to what the body would produce. They have less side effects and are more effective than non-bioidentical hormones. However, if the dose is too high or too low, or the hormones are prescribed the wrong way, then the side effects can be the same as non-bioidentical hormones.

Dr. Shira Miller answered:

Is it possible to get pregnant while on bioidentical hormones?

Yes

Open-uri20130407-19556-14wq60v
Bioidentical hormones do not prevent pregnancy and actually assist in fertility treatments. If a woman is in menopause, however, then its not possible for her to get pregnant unless she has fertility treatments.
