Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

 

 What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy in women and men results in several health benefits such as increased energy and endurance, weight loss and improved muscle tone, and better sleep patterns. Your hormones are chemical messengers that control a variety of bodily functions, including your appetite, respiratory rate, and libido.

As you age, your hormone levels decline naturally. Over time, this can negatively affect your physical and mental health, interfering with your energy levels and quality of life. Hormone replacement therapy restores balance to your body, allowing you to age gracefully.

At PharmXhealthOne the team offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Unlike traditional hormone therapy, BHRT doesn’t use synthetic hormones. Instead, it uses natural hormones derived from plants. Natural hormones are safer and present fewer side-effects.

What are the symptoms of a hormonal imbalance?

Hormonal imbalances affect everyone differently. Telltale signs include:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Dry skin
  • Constipation
  • Poor sleep
  • Low libido
  • Unexplained weight loss

A hormonal imbalance can also trigger hair loss or bloating.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy provides a variety of benefits, including:

  • Healthy sex drive
  • Increased bone mass
  • Better fat distribution
  • Improved muscle mass and strength

Hormone replacement therapy can also improve cognitive functions like memory, decision-making, and thinking, allowing you to perform your best at work.

Do I qualify for hormone replacement therapy?

Only a qualified medical professional can determine if you’re a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy. At your initial consultation, your PharmXhealthOne provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your health history, and asks about your lifestyle and symptoms.

After gathering this information, your provider orders a comprehensive blood test. The blood test provides key information about the levels of vitamins, nutrients, and hormones throughout your body. Once you receive your test results, your provider explains them in depth. After explaining the information provided, they develop a custom treatment plan.

How does hormone replacement therapy work?

There are several ways to administer hormone replacement therapy. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your provider might recommend treatment with pills, patches, creams, gels, or injections. You might even benefit from a combination of several applications. 

Throughout treatment, you return to PharmXhealthOne for regular check-ups. Your provider monitors your progress and adjusts your care plan as necessary.

Is hormone replacement therapy safe?

Hormone replacement therapy is safe and well-tolerated, but it’s normal to experience side-effects at the beginning of treatment while your body adjusts to the influx of new hormones. 

Some of the most common side-effects caused by hormone replacement therapy include acne, bloating, fatigue, and weight gain. Be patient and follow your provider’s instructions. These symptoms should subside over time.
