hrt treatment options

There are several different types of HRT treatments available to men and women. Since everyone is different with a unique biochemistry it’s important to work with your doctor. During your confidential consultation, we work to determine the treatment that’s right for you.

hrt treatment options for women

Women have two major sex hormones – estrogen and progesterone. While both are important, estrogen levels are more likely to become imbalanced. A woman’s body produces a high volume of estrogen during puberty to generate breasts and start menstrual cycles. During menopause, the level of estrogen drops before reaching a new balance. Women also have a small amount of testosterone in their bodies. In some cases, it may be necessary to supplement the body’s testosterone. This can sometimes combat symptoms related to concentration and physical stamina.

Women suffering from hormonal issues might experience these symptoms:

  • Reduced energy and frequent feelings of fatigue
  • Problems concentrating and remembering things
  • Reduction in sexual desire and sexual sensation
  • Difficulty regulating moods, including depression

what to expect

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the most common treatment. Before treatment starts, it’s important to measure current hormone levels through diagnostic blood testing. Then a customized, comprehensive, and scientific course of treatment can be designed. Depending on patient needs, hormones can usually be administered via intramuscular injection or implantation of a time-release “pellet” that gradually and optimally introduces hormones into the bloodstream. In some cases, hormones are available as a pill or patch. Pellet therapy is a popular method. It releases a steady dose of hormones over a period of time without the need to make frequent visits to our office.

hrt treatment options for men

The vital sex hormone in men is testosterone. It is produced in large quantities in the testes, though both sexes produce testosterone through the adrenal glands, near the kidneys. Testosterone is the “secret ingredient” enabling men to build muscle tissue relatively faster than women. It is also involved in physical strength, stamina, and libido.

Testosterone isn’t just for bodybuilders: it’s as important to men as estrogen is to women. In fact, men with low testosterone can suffer all the same symptoms as women. As men age, their testosterone level can begin to decline. However, low testosterone can affect men of all ages. One of the most common symptoms of low testosterone, sometimes known as low-t, is erectile dysfunction (ED). If you suffer from ED and cardiovascular issues are ruled out, hormonal imbalance is very likely the culprit!

Men can receive hormone replacement therapy using intramuscular injection, time-release pellet, or topical cream. The type used depends on the specific type of testosterone needed. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is another type of hormone men may need to supplement.
