What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormones are found throughout our bodies: the brain, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, pancreas, and ovaries. Women naturally produce both estrogen and testosterone, hormones that make us feel balanced and healthy. Each hormone plays an important role. While estrogen helps thicken the lining of the uterus, it also impacts how our bodies use calcium. This particular operation is important because calcium helps in the management of cholesterol levels and our bone strength. Testosterone boosts our sex drive, sharpens our minds, improves energy, and helps us develop the muscle mass that burns calories and keep us strong.
In short, hormone replacement therapy replenishes theses hormones as they are depleted.
What are my Options?
Treatment plans will be specific to blood test results showing where your natural hormones levels are. This may include a combination of:
- Estrogen Therapy
The re-introduction of estrogen will help strengthen your bones and prevent bone fractures with age.
- Testosterone Therapy
Testosterone can help with energy levels, bone density, sex drive as well as help you improve sleep, hair growth, and your overall mood.
- Progesterone Therapy
Progesterone protects the lining of the uterus.
Therefore, a combination is given to women who have not had a hysterectomy.
