Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy for women?

Hormone replacement therapy for women involves restoring your levels of the hormone estrogen. This is a hormone you lose as you age, specifically as you approach and enter menopause. Conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), premenopause, menopause, and postmenopause can all benefit from hormone replacement therapy to control symptoms. 

During your consultation for hormone replacement therapy at Energize Testosterone & Wellness Center, the team provides blood tests to measure your hormone levels. A hormone blood test offers insight into your condition and helps the team determine your hormone replacement therapy dosage. The team also reviews your symptoms and medical history at this complimentary visit. 

As you go through treatment with hormone replacement therapy, the team provides ongoing support with frequent follow-ups via phone, video, and email. They review your symptoms and treatment every two months to ensure your hormones are optimized. 

Which symptoms can hormone replacement therapy treat?

Hormone replacement therapy can treat a wide range of symptoms that commonly arise from low estrogen levels. Not all women experience such symptoms, at least not to the point they need hormone replacement therapy. However, if you have symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may improve your quality of life. It can alleviate:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes
  • Chills
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep issues
  • Mood changes 
  • Weight gain
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Brain fog
  • Headaches
  • Depression and anxiety

The team can modify your treatment based on your primary symptoms and offer additional recommendations for your wellness. 

Which conditions can hormone replacement therapy prevent?

Because hormones like estrogen have such a strong influence over the way your body functions, their loss can increase your risk for some diseases and chronic conditions that make life more challenging with age. Hormone replacement therapy may offer you some protection against:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Breast cancer
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease

Aside from alleviating symptoms and lowering health risks, personalized hormone replacement therapy can also boost your sex drive, improve your mood, increase your energy, and make weight loss easier.
