Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy restores your hormone levels when you’re experiencing the negative effects of hormone loss. At the Center for Antiaging Aesthetic and Rejuvenation Medicine PLLC, Dr. Smith prescribes bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which provides a molecular duplicate of your natural hormones. 

Hormone replacement therapy can take many forms, including:

  • Implantable pellets
  • Oral medications 
  • Patches
  • Skin creams
  • Skin gels
  • Suppositories

Dr. Smith customizes your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plan for you. In many cases, hormone therapy works alongside other treatments, such as nutraceuticals, acoustic pressure wave therapy, and peptide therapy, to maximize your results.

How does hormone replacement therapy testing work?

Both blood and saliva analysis evaluate your health needs. Dr. Smith performs comprehensive testing because it’s the safest and most accurate way to determine what you need to feel and be your best. 

Comprehensive health testing allows Dr. Smith to look into the future: predict problems, prevent health issues, and maximize your whole-person health. 

Many people experience sexual health issues as they age, including erectile dysfunction and low libido. Comprehensive testing can identify the exact reasons for those issues and determine what hormones your body needs. 

When should I start hormone replacement therapy?

Most people start hormone replacement therapy when they notice the effects of hormone loss, such as:

 

  • Lack of energy
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Hair thinning
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Brain fog
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Sleep problems 
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Erectile dysfunction in men

 

Women experience a significant drop in hormones during menopause (usually in their early 50s), so they often notice a dramatic onset of symptoms around that time. 

Men experience hormone loss more gradually, losing about 1% of their testosterone per year after age 30. They may start noticing problems, particularly sexual health problems, growing more frequent and intense into and beyond their 40s.

In addition, you can experience adrenal and thyroid hormone imbalance at any time in life.  

Hormone replacement therapy can quickly relieve these issues, so the right time to start is as soon as you notice a problem. Don’t wait for the problems to get worse. 

There's no reason to suffer when you can start hormone replacement therapy now. Call the Center for Antiaging Aesthetic and Rejuvenation Medicine PLLC or click on the online scheduler to get help from a true expert in hormone replacement.
