What is hormone replacement therapy?

When your body is no longer producing specific hormones in sufficient amounts, you can suffer symptoms like fatigue, sexual dysfunction, and weight gain. Hormone therapy can ease or eliminate these symptoms and restore your hormonal balance.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is designed to supplement falling hormone levels. When you experience an imbalance of estrogen (women) or testosterone (men), it can seriously affect your day-to-day energy, relationships, productivity, and mood.

Don’t just assume that changes in how you feel, look, and function are just the natural result of aging. Your provider can restore your hormones to peak their levels using HRT. Doing so can also balance your mood, restore your libido, and give you back the energy you once had.

What are the signs that I need hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone imbalances aren’t something that just women experience. Men also experience changes in their hormone levels as they age.

Hormone imbalances in women

Women most often experience hormone changes during the years leading up to menopause. The rapid estrogen depletion causes hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, weight gain, brain fog, forgetfulness, fatigue, and other unpleasant symptoms.

Hormone imbalances in men

Men’s testosterone production decreases gradually after age 30. In their 40s, 50s, and 60s, low testosterone levels can cause a loss of muscle mass, mood swings, hair loss, irritability, memory loss, fatigue, decreased sexual function, poor sleep, and other frustrating problems.

How does hormone replacement therapy work?

A simple blood test measures hormone levels. The Passion Health Primary Care team then customizes your hormone therapy to you. They could recommend topical, oral, injectable, or subdermal hormone therapy.

Doses of supplemental hormones are carefully monitored so that you receive just the right amount.

In addition to restoring your hormone levels, hormone replacement therapy offers:

  • Protection from arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Increased bone density
  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • Potentially reduced risk of uterine, ovarian, breast, and prostate cancer
