Hormone replacement therapy gives you an excellent option for restoring your hormone health and feeling more like yourself once again. Most often used for women going through menopause, it can actually be used by both men and women who are experiencing a depletion of one or more vital hormones in the body, such as estrogen or testosterone. However, most of our patients are people who are looking for ways to get back to a high quality of life after experiencing terrible physical and mental symptoms that take away their enjoyment from work, hobbies and social events.
Hormone replacement therapy is most popularly used during menopause because a woman’s hormone levels drop exponentially during this season of life. In particular, estrogen levels can drop dramatically, leaving women with such uncomfortable symptoms as painful sexual intercourse, insomnia and hot flashes. Some women may also experience falling levels of progesterone and testosterone. Taken together, the symptoms of menopause may be numerous and may also include a variety of mental and emotional side effects, such as the inability to concentrate, forgetfulness, depression and anxiety.
Although some women can deal with low hormonal levels well and make it through this season of life without any need for outside treatment, others experience such uncomfortable symptoms that affect their lives so much that they need professional help.
Women most often use estrogen-only therapy, although some women may also use progesterone or testosterone to get the best hormone health. Therapy can be achieved in a variety of ways, and the right treatment plan for you will ultimately be determined during a consultation with our team of experts.
Of course, hormone replacement therapy is not right for everyone, and you will need to have an in-depth discussion with our practitioner to find out if it is the right choice for you in order to restore your hormone health.
