Hormone Therapy for Women

Often, hormone therapy is used for women going through menopause to help improve the symptoms. With HRT supplements, the levels of hormones within the body can be  changed to help improve comfort. Symptoms become less severe because they don’t fluctuate as much with hormone therapy.

Even just one session can make a bit of difference. Menopause is different for everybody, however. Some patients may experience immediate results, while for others it may take a bit longer.

Some of the symptoms hormone replacement therapy can improve in women include:

  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Bone loss
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Vaginal dryness

In addition to using hormone therapy during menopause, it can also benefit women after menopause by minimizing bone loss.

Hormone Therapy for Men

Men can also benefit from hormone therapy as they age. Testosterone levels in men naturally decrease due to aging, which may cause several symptoms to develop. Hormone therapy for men is also known as testosterone replacement therapy. By taking a supplement containing low levels of testosterone, men can reduce the symptoms of aging including:

  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Cognitive changes

Hormone therapy for men will help balance testosterone. Both short term and long-term treatment programs are available, depending on your specific needs. With regular treatments, men can return to a better quality of life.

Which Hormones do Men and Women Lose as they age?

Several common hormones are lost or lowered in men and women as they age. Estrogen is the main hormone lost by women during menopause, along with progesterone. Both men and women may experience declining levels of DHEA, as well. For men, the most common hormone lost due to aging is testosterone. Men and women may also experience lower levels of pregnenolone.

How Does Hormone Therapy Work?

Hormone therapy may be taken as a tablet or a patch, depending on the type of HRT. In addition, it may be applied to the skin as a gel form, and in some cases, it may be administered as a surgical implant into the thigh, stomach, or buttock. It may also be administered as a shot into the arm. This is a minimally invasive procedure when done by a skilled doctor. Once the procedure is completed, you will be able to resume normal activities.

What are the Benefits of Hormone Therapy for Women?
