In brief: By who?
Compounding pharmacists are supposed to meet certain standards and they custom make bioidentical hormones.
Some are manufactured by big pharma such as estrace, aka Estradiol and Prometrium (micronized progesterone) (progesterone) which are bioidentical. They have lots of standards. Don't try to figure this out on your own, find a doctor your trust and let them guide you.

Compounding pharmacies are regulated by the state's Board of Pharmacy, much like state medical boards regulate surgeons & medical doctors. Compounding is very much a part of a pharmacist's area of practice & expertise, and several national organizations exist to support those of us who compound medications like bioidentical hormones.
