When talking about hormone replacement, the experts are often referring to the male and female hormones: testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone. This treatment is specially formulated for patients who are in their menopause stage because it helps to stabilize the symptoms that come with the stage. Since the levels of these hormones will be low, this treatment works by increasing their amounts.
Once you book an appointment with our hormone replacement expert, we will discuss the options available to alleviate the symptoms of menopause. This will help you to deal with the hot flashes, sudden mood changes, vaginal dryness, poor quality sleep, and extreme night sweats better. Some of the patients experience hormonal destabilization that may occur even post-menopause. Hormone replacement can ease this problem.
What is Hormone Replacement?
This is an effective treatment procedure for men in middle age as well as women in their menopausal stage. At this stage, most important hormones are unstable and produced in low quantities. This therapy, however, should replace the lost hormones with a treatment option that you’re best suited for.
Who is a Good Candidate for Hormone Replacement?
Is your quality of life poor due to menopausal symptoms that have suddenly set in? If it is, you will be better off after undergoing hormone replacement treatment. This treatment option should help address the severest menopausal symptoms. The best candidates for this procedure are those people who have experienced these symptoms earlier in life. This is usually before one attains the age of 40 years. Additionally, if you have had a surgical procedure to trigger menopause before the age of 45 years, this hormone replacement therapy could also help you. If you go for a doctor’s visit with a severe headache, insomnia, night sweats, or if you experience discomfort during sex, you might also qualify for a hormone replacing treatment.
Before seeking the treatment, however, be sure to notify the doctor in case you have health problems like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, etc. You should also speak up if you are under any medication or the symptoms persist even after treatment.
