Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What can hormone replacement do for women?

service apge iamgeMost women equate hormone loss and imbalance with menopause. It’s certainly a factor. Notably, however, the physical and emotional changes related to hormone imbalance begin several years before your periods cease, many of which can greatly impact your quality of life.

Your symptoms may include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Loss of desire for physical intimacy
  • Weight gain or inability to lose weight despite routine exercise and a healthy diet
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness and irritation
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Problems focusing or concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety, depression, irritability, or chronic low mood

Medically supervised hormone replacement therapy can help resolve these symptoms, reignite your passion in a mature relationship, and may even benefit your overall health.

Balancing your hormones, for instance, can improve your sleep. Getting 7-8 hours of restful sleep each night can help keep your blood pressure under control, improve digestion, and even reduce your risk of developing diabetes.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance in men?

Often related to aging, low testosterone in men may cause:

  • Decreased sex drive
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Increased body fat, especially around the waist
  • Changes in mood and motivation
  • Elevated blood sugar
  • High cholesterol
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability

As is the case with women, many of these hormone-related changes can affect other areas of your physical health.

Fatigue and loss of motivation, for instance, can make it hard to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine. This increases your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension. 

Increased abdominal fat, often a symptom of low testosterone, can also increase your risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

What can I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

Jessica is a certified Evexipel Provider. This pellet-based, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy closely mimics your body’s natural processes by delivering a steady stream of hormones throughout the day.

Bioidentical hormones are synthesized from plant-based products, often soy, and are nearly identical to hormones your body produces.

Designed to dissolve completely over time, the pellets are quickly injected just under the skin in the upper buttock region 2-4 times a year during a 15-minute in-office visit. Absorption rates differ depending on your age, gender, and metabolism.

Because the therapy is customized to meet your needs, you do require blood tests before initiating the therapy and periodically after that to ensure your dosing is accurate.
