What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
The hormonal structures govern multiple aspects of your overall health, bodily function, and well-being, including your emotions and sex drive. Hormonal imbalances can occur in men and women alike, whether resulting from stress, getting older, or having children. Hormonal imbalances commonly lead to symptoms including fatigue, decreased sex drive, trouble sleeping, and gaining weight. At Fontaine MD, we use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to improve your hormone levels and help you gain revitalizing breakthroughs in your mood, sexual desire, and mental acuity. To learn more about what bioidentical hormones can do for you, contact us to plan a consultation with Dr. James D. Fontaine, a hormone specialist in San Diego, CA.

Am I A Good Candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is frequently used to assist people who are suffering from diminished or unbalanced hormone levels. Typically, these problems are widespread in individuals who are older than 40 and observe changes in their mood, sexual performance, weight, and mental clarity. These issues might also be seen in females younger than 50 who have had a complete hysterectomy. A hormone imbalance may cause various medical problems, like erectile dysfunction, thyroid disease, high cholesterol levels, night perspiration, sleeping troubles, and memory loss.

Bioidentical Hormones Reviews
Dr. Jim Fontaine is a great guy! I am a 72 year old male who has been seeing him for over a year to improve my wellness and overall health. He has provided supplements that have everything heading in the right direction. I would highly recommend Dr. Fontaine to anyone interested in improving their wellness!
My only regret about visiting Dr. Fontaine is that I didn't do it sooner. I didn't realize how bad I felt before until after a few months of treatment. The difference was staggering. I originally went because I felt tired constantly, stopped working out because I wasn't making any progress, felt demotivated, and had a hard time focusing at work. After a few months of balanced hormones, I literally feel like a new person. I wake up with an abundance of energy that lasts throughout the day, my body looks better, my workouts shed body fat and put on muscle more easily than they have in decades, and I feel motivated across every aspect of my career and personal life. It sounds too good to be true, but it's real. If you're a guy and you feel like you've lost something, you should seriously consider visiting and seeing if you can find it again.
My experience at Fontaine MD has been even better than I was hoping for. Dr. Fontaine and his team have been responsive, professional, and proactive with any concerns or questions I’ve had while on my HRT journey. I feel great and my hormone levels are where they should be, which is all thanks to Dr. Fontaine and his expertise. I’ve recommended him to multiple people who have also had the same great experience as myself. If you’re considering HRT, I highly recommend you give them a call!
In 2021 I discovered Dr. Jim Fontaine and he has changed my life. First off, I have never felt so comfortable in the presence of a doctor. He is so down to earth and really makes his visit something I look forward to, and I've never said that before about a visit to the doctors office. He has helped me with all kinds of middle aged afflictions from ballooning blood pressure to ED. With simple supplement's and hormone treatments, not to mention the guidance from his dietitian, of what not to eat. From a dietary standpoint alone, I had no clue how much sugar I was consuming. I'm now controlling my sugar intake and it has fundamentally, helped with my general fitness and well being. I have lost 10lbs, my body fat is under 16% and my blood pressure is normal, without using any medications. At 56, Fontaine MD has put a spring back in my step. It is absolutely, worth the investment in yourself to have Doctor help you with the aging process, every penny. Thanks Dr. Jim and the whole team at Fontaine MD.
Is there a 10-star rating?! Working with Dr. Fontaine has changed my life. I'm a 47-year old woman in the throes of peri-menopause. At the time of my first appointment I was desperate for help and to be heard. My emotions, moods and energy levels had bottomed out, I was having hot flashes and extreme night sweats, was experiencing insane fluctuations in weight and bloating and generally just felt like an alien had taken over my body and mind. Counsel from my primary care physician (a woman! In her 50s!) was "Welcome to your mid-40s" and "maybe consider going back on birth control to level out your hormones." It was RIDICULOUS! I was so frustrated and disheartened. I began reading/learning more about bio-identical HRT and felt like I had nothing to lose by trying it. Enter Dr. Fontaine and his amazing team!! My first appointment + discussion with Dr. Fontaine was 90 minutes and super fruitful. To hear him say "you're not crazy, this is real" was so affirming! After a lot of dialogue and reviewing bloodwork he recommended a treatment plan of a change in my Thyroid medication (which was so, so poorly prescribed. He was like "I don't know who put you on this in the first place, and why different doctors over the years have just blindly renewed it, but this dosage is doing you more harm than good") and then a regimen of testosterone and progesterone as well as a couple additional supplements for minerals/vitamins I was low in. Within the first 14 days I felt like a new person. The hot flashes and night sweats were the first thing to improve and that alone changed everything! Over the next couple of weeks my energy, sleep, moods and weight became more consistent. It's been 6 months now and I feel like I have reclaimed my life. I can't say I'm peri-menopause-symptom-free (new stuff pops up all the time that is confusing... period-symptoms but no period for months, fluctuating energy and fatigue that mimics a menstruation cycle but without menstruation, mid-life blues, blah blah) but I can say that I feel 150% better than I did when I started. Run - don't walk - to Dr. Fontaine!
