Women's Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A
What is women’s hormone replacement therapy?
As a woman gets older, her body slows down its production of sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone, leading to a hormone imbalance. The decline of hormones typically begins with the onset of perimenopause, the transitional period leading up to menopause.
Menopause signals the end of your child-bearing years and the time when your periods stop for good. As your hormone levels decline, you may experience a variety of symptoms that can be severe enough to affect your quality of life. These symptoms might include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Higher blood pressure
- Reduced sex drive
- Vaginal dryness
- Poor sexual performance
You may also experience mental and cognitive issues like depression, anxiety, poor memory, and difficulties concentrating. Menopausal women are also at increased risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, and other chronic health issues because of estrogen loss.
If you have symptoms of a hormone imbalance before or after menopause, the team at Envizion Medical can determine if you’re a candidate for women’s hormone replacement therapy.
What’s involved in women’s hormone replacement therapy?
Envizion Medical uses bioidentical hormones in hormone replacement therapy to optimize your hormone levels. These hormones come from plants and are structurally similar to your natural hormones.
The team customizes your therapy plan using creams, injections, or pellets to rebalance your hormone levels. Pellet therapy involves the placement of a small pellet under the surface of your skin. The pellet releases a steady supply of hormones into your body.
Envizion Medical offers bioidentical progesterone, estrogen, and female testosterone to relieve your symptoms. The team can also prescribe thyroid hormones to correct hypothyroidism and other thyroid conditions.
The team at Envizion continues to monitor your hormone levels and can make adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
