Some of the hormone replacement therapy options we offer for men include testosterone replacement therapy, bioidentical hormone pellet therapy, pituitary imbalance treatment, thyroid hormone treatment, and Sermorelin HGH treatment.
For women, we specialize in estrogen replacement therapy using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) options, which offer fewer side effects. BHRT also provides numerous health benefits, including improving menopausal symptoms.
Female Hormone Replacement Therapy
Menopause occurs in women in their late 40s through their 50s, marking the end of child-bearing years. In this phase, estrogen production is greatly reduced, causing the symptoms of menopause. The type of estrogen in your body changes from primary estrogen, called estradiol (E2), during reproductive years to estrone (E1) during menopause.
Estrogen regulates important processes in your cardiovascular, skeletal, and central nervous systems that impact your overall health. It affects blood sugar and cholesterol levels, muscle mass and bone health, circulation, collagen production, and your skin’s moisture levels. It also influences how your brain functions, especially your ability to focus.
Symptoms of low estrogen can be especially bothersome. These can include low sex drive, change in libido, and the physical symptoms of vaginal dryness, which can cause pain during sexual intercourse for some. Women can also experience breast tenderness and vaginal burning or itching.
Estrogen is responsible for helping your vagina lubricate naturally. It also helps maintain your vagina’s thickness and elasticity. Low estrogen can cause brittle, weak bones. Additional symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, hair loss or thinning, insomnia, headaches or trouble concentrating, anxiety, and depression.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a common treatment for low estrogen, especially for people experiencing menopause. Your provider will prescribe small doses of estrogen to boost your level in women without a uterus (hysterectomy) or a combination of estrogen and progesterone (progestin) for those with a uterus.
Forms of HRT include pills, creams, vaginal rings or tablets, patches, and sprays. There is also the choice of testosterone or estrogen replacement utilizing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets. This type of HRT offers a convenient method of replacing hormones every three months without having to take something daily.
Male Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is “low T,” also known as andropause? As men age, they make less and less testosterone. This leads to a variety of symptoms that many men accept as part of the normal aging process. What they don’t realize is that these symptoms can be reduced significantly or eliminated through testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
Symptoms of low testosterone include lack of motivation, low libido or sex drive, and lack of or change in erections in the morning. They also experience depression, change in mood, anxiety, irritability, poor sleep, and fatigue. Men also notice weight gain, muscle loss, joint pain, and decreased muscle strength.
The benefits of testosterone replacement with exogenous testosterone (outside the body) or stimulating endogenous (within the body) testosterone production are many. Erectile dysfunction can be treated with a variety of medications. We also offer Growth Hormone Optimization (GHO) for men who want performance enhancement, anti-aging properties, decreased recovery times after workouts, and to use along with TRT.
