Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a leading treatment option for women who experience changes due to menopause. As your body produces fewer hormones, you might notice symptoms that make you uncomfortable. 

Some women report that menopause symptoms make them feel uncomfortable in their own skin. Others find issues like vaginal dryness, weight gain, or brain fog to be incredibly disruptive. 

Hormone therapy works by delivering the hormones that your body is no longer producing. This is never a one-size-fits-all process, so your hormone replacement therapy experience is uniquely designed to align with your specific needs. 

When should I consider hormone replacement therapy?

Far too many women struggle with menopause symptoms for years before they seek treatment. Menopause is a natural transition out of your reproductive years, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept the symptoms as an inevitable part of growing older. 

As soon as you identify changes that make you feel uncomfortable or disrupt your normal routines, schedule a visit at Menopause Solutions to explore your options. There is no need to suffer when there are treatments that can help. 

While hormone replacement therapy is a popular way to improve menopause symptoms, there are other options that don’t involve supplemental hormones. Your treatment plan centers on your unique needs and goals. 

When will I see the results of hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is more of a marathon than a sprint. It’s important to be patient as you move through the process. 

At Menopause Solutions, your provider first discusses your symptoms and provides lab testing to determine your current hormone production levels. Next, your practitioner crafts a precision supplemental hormone plan to help restore optimal balance. 

You have options when it comes to how to receive your supplemental hormones.  Menopause solutions also offers bioidentical hormone therapy which replaces your hormones with those molecularly identical to your own hormones so your body recognizes them as natural.

It takes time for your body to adjust to supplemental hormones. Your active participation is essential, so track any changes you notice and communicate with your practitioner. Adjusting your hormone replacement therapy is possible and helps your body reach the best possible outcomes. 

When you’re ready to begin, booking a visit at Menopause Solutions is as easy as a phone call.
