Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

As you get older, hormone production starts to decline, especially testosterone in men and estrogen and progesterone in women. Anyone of any age, however, can struggle with hormone imbalances, like if you have an inherited disorder. 

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a solution for restoring your hormone levels and resolving many of those uncomfortable side effects you may be experiencing. Getting started on hormone replacement therapy can:

  • Stabilize your weight
  • Boost your sex drive
  • Minimize hot flashes and their severity
  • Improve your moods, as well as concentration and focus
  • Resolve sexual dysfunction, including vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction

Another benefit of HRT is bone preservation. Women are particularly prone to bone loss as estrogen levels plummet. Hormone replacement therapy can help prevent bone loss and lower your risk of osteoporosis. 

Which type of hormone replacement therapy do I need?

Concierge Wellness Center conducts comprehensive testing — blood draws are conducted on-site — to evaluate your hormone levels. Once your doctor determines the severity of your hormone imbalance and talks with you about your symptoms, they counsel you about how hormone replacement therapy can help you.

Your personalized HRT plan may include one or more of the following solutions:

  • Patches 
  • Oral pills
  • Injections 
  • Topical creams
  • Vaginal suppositories

Because hormone treatments come in a variety of formularies, your doctor at Concierge Wellness Center spends time talking with you about which options may best suit your needs. 

How long does it take for hormone replacement therapy to start working?

Once you get started on your hormone replacement therapy plan, you should start noticing gradual improvements in your symptoms within a few weeks. With each passing week, you should find that your symptoms continue to resolve.

Typically, you have a follow-up visit at Concierge Wellness Center to have another blood draw to evaluate your hormone levels after several months. 

At any time, your practitioner can make any necessary changes to your hormone replacement therapy plan as needed to help you get relief from hormone imbalance symptoms.
