What is Hormone Replacement Therapy

With advancing age, men and women are prone to suffer from hormonal deficiency that can cause undesirable physical and emotional changes such as hot flashes, mood swings, loss of libido, and a tendency to put on weight. While in men these changes can be gradual, women tend to experience these changes more abruptly around the time of menopause.

Common menopausal symptoms in women include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • Migraine headaches
  • Thinning of hair
  • Loss of sexual desire

Common symptoms of low testosterone in men include:

  • Inability to achieve or maintain an erection
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Increased body fat
  • Decreased muscle mass and bone density
  • Gynecomastia
  • Depression

If you have menopausal symptoms or are suffering with low testosterone levels, bioidentical hormones may help relieve your symptoms. In women, bio-identical hormones perform the function of the ovaries to bring about hormonal balance that greatly reduces the physical and emotional distress associated with menopause. Men may experience increased energy levels and an overall improvement in quality of life.
