What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Hormone replacement therapy is something that many women use as they move into menopause. Leading up to menopause, the body stops making certain key hormones that are essential for normal, healthy function throughout the body. This can lead to common symptoms like:

  • Hot flashes.
  • Night sweats.
  • Cold hands and feet.
  • Mood changes.
  • Irritability.
  • Depression.
  • Anxiety.
  • Painful periods.
  • Trouble concentrating.
  • Loss of sex drive.
  • Brain fog.
  • Fatigue.
  • Vaginal discomfort.
  • Sleep problems.
  • Yeast infections
  • Acne.
  • Hair loss.
  • Memory problems.
  • Osteoporosis.

Menopause can disrupt hormonal balance, leading women to feel disconnected from their bodies. These imbalances can affect physical comfort, work performance, energy levels, and relationships. Additionally, many women notice accelerated aging as hormone levels decline during menopause.

HRT offers more than just short-term menopause symptom relief; it also plays a crucial role in maintaining long-term health and strength. The estrogen decrease during menopause can lead to bone loss, increasing the risk of injuries, muscle loss, osteoporosis, and other health issues.

 

How Is HRT Used?

Understanding HRT Goals and Methods

In most cases, the goal of HRT is to replace the estrogen levels that are being lost as you progress through menopause. There are two main delivery methods for estrogen when undergoing HRT through mainstream care providers. The first is something called systematic estrogen. This option is typically delivered in the form of a pill, patch, ring, spray, foam gel or cream. It helps to provide higher estrogen levels due to the fact that it is absorbed throughout the body.

Exploring Low-Dose Vaginal Products

The second option is something called a low-dose vaginal product. This option delivers lower levels of estragon to the body. The estrogen is delivered in the form of a ring, tablet or cream. While some women find low-dose therapies to be effective for addressing some of the “surface” symptoms associated with vaginal and urinary health during menopause, this option is considered less effective when it comes to deeper symptoms like weight gain, mood, cognitive performance and hot flashes.

Customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

We offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plans tailored for the needs of our patients. We provide a full range of HRT options that includes dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), pregnenolone, thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin and testosterone. A consultation is important for determining which form of hormone replacement therapy is right for you! Factors like your age, health history and symptoms should all be looked at before making a decision. In addition, a custom plan that delivers the right amount of hormone replacement for the right duration of time is very important for producing the best results.
