Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
Why do I need hormone replacement therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is essential if you have low levels of hormones, including testosterone, estrogen, or thyroid hormones. A decline in hormones is common as you get older, especially for women experiencing menopause, although men may struggle with hormone imbalances, too.
You may benefit from hormone replacement therapy to help with:
- Sexual dysfunction
- Weight fluctuations
- Mood swings
- Decreased libido
- Hot flashes
- Poor sleep cycles
- Building muscle mass
Once your hormones stabilize after starting your custom HRT plan, you may even find that you feel more energized, focused, and ready to go about your day.
Which hormone replacement therapy treatment is best?
Because hormone replacement therapy is tailored to your specific needs and hormonal requirements, no two treatment plans offered at Balance Hormone Center are the same. The skilled practitioners at Balance Hormone Center emphasize using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) whenever possible.
BHRT is often preferred over traditional hormone therapies because bioidentical hormones are produced by plants. They’re not only safe and effective, but their chemical makeup is also nearly identical to your own natural hormones your body produces. Because of this, you won’t have to worry about side effects.
Your hormone replacement therapy treatment plan can include:
- Injections or oral medications
- Under-the-skin pellets
- Topical creams or patches
- Vaginal suppositories
The best way to find out which bioidentical hormone solution is right for you is to schedule an evaluation at Balance Hormone Center.
When will I have an improvement with hormone replacement therapy?
Most men and women report an improvement in their symptoms within the first few weeks of starting hormone replacement therapy. Because your hormone treatment is designed for your needs, you generally start out with the lowest possible dosage.
Your dedicated practitioner at Balance Hormone Center is likely going to schedule you for several follow-up visits to see how well — and how quickly — you’re progressing. If necessary, they can adjust your hormone replacement therapy plan along the way.
