Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Newport Beach, CA


As we age, we may begin to notice changes in our mood, sex drive, and energy levels. Even though these shifts are a natural part of the aging process, they can often lead to frustration and may even cause some health issues. At Beyond Med Spa & Wellness Center, owner Allyson Berkey MD and nurse practitioner Brenda Van Loggem is pleased to perform hormone replacement therapy, our office's own twist on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Beyond Med Spa and Wellness Center specializes in hormone evaluation and pellet insertion treatments. This revolutionary branch of treatment works to deliver a steady dose of hormones throughout the body, utilizing medications, topical creams, or injections. BHRT serves to regulate your body's hormone production and reduce the negative side effects that imbalanced hormone levels can cause, including weight gain, fatigue, mood swings, and sexual dysfunction. We encourage men and women to reach out to our office in Newport Beach, CA to learn more about hormone therapy and find out if this could be the treatment for you and your health needs.



Candidates for BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy) are women affected by the symptoms of menopause and men affected by andropause. The symptoms often include:

  • Loss of sex drive

  • Sexual dysfunction

  • Weight gain

  • Fatigue

  • Mental fog or loss of concentration

  • Mood swings

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Loss of bone density

  • Poor sleep or insomnia

  • Hair loss

  • Depression


can help both men and women restore sexual function and libido, lose weight, improve mental performance, increase energy levels, sleep better, and achieve an overall better quality of life. During your consultation at Beyond Med Spa & Wellness Center, we will talk to you about your medical history, current condition and help you decide if BHRT is right for you.



How long does it take for bioidentical hormones to absorb?

It depends on your body, but generally, patients start to experience a difference in their symptoms within a few days. However, it takes your body time to get used to the new hormones so you won't experience significant changes until around 2 – 3 weeks. Optimal results occur in eight weeks.


Will I gain weight on BHRT?

Before offering this treatment, we closely listen to your concerns, perform blood work, and develop a detailed treatment plan so we can adjust the hormone levels to your needs. Slight fluctuations in your hormones could enable you to lose weight. Our staff can provide additional information about the benefits of this hormone therapy.

What happens if you stop taking bioidentical hormones?

If you stop taking bioidentical hormones, it can cause your menopause or andropause symptoms to come back. We recommend following a consistent treatment plan to ensure you see the results you want.


Our team will design your personalized bio-hacking, AGE MANAGEMENT treatment plan after we assess the results of your blood tests and learn about your symptoms and medical history. We will then determine what types of hormone therapies you would benefit from the most. After about a week HRT, you will begin to notice positive changes in the way you feel and the way your body functions. Within the first year of treatment, follow-up appointments are necessary to ensure the success of your personal program. During your follow-up appointment, we will make sure that you are maintaining ideal hormone levels. In addition to pellets and topical creams, our team offers peptides (small chains of amino acids that have a specific function in the body similar to how insulin works) that can be used for:

  • Anti-aging

  • Brain and memory support

  • Sleep

  • Anxiety

  • Libido (Oxytocin)

  • Joint problems

  • GERD and IBS

  • Weight loss

  • Muscle building

  • Low testosterone

At our facility, we will provide you innovative hormone pellet treatments. During this procedure, dissolvable pellet(s) are inserted into the buttock area under the skin to restore normal hormone levels and improve symptoms.


If you've been experiencing problems, like fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, or decreased libido, our team at Beyond Med Spa & Wellness Center may be able to help.  AGE MANAGEMENT is our office's own unique bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program. We custom craft your program to balance your hormones, allowing you to feel renewed and full of energy once again. Reach out to our team in Newport Beach, CA to set up your hormone evaluation appointment.
