Hormones control us in many ways for our entire lives. For women, they fluctuate during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, and beyond. With age, the level of many important hormones in the body drops, which can result in several unpleasant symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy can help. Here at Ovation Med Spa, we are proud to provide this treatment option to our patients and encourage you to find out more about it.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy aims to boost hormone levels that have naturally decreased with age and time. By receiving these boosts, you can go back to feeling younger, more comfortable, and more functional overall on a day-to-day basis. This treatment is commonly used to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause in women.
Signs You May Need Hormone Replacement Therapy
Women seek out this treatment for many reasons. It can help with symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats, and painful intercourse. A sudden drop in libido can also be helped using hormone replacement therapy.
Other symptoms that can be relieved using this therapy include:
- Insomnia or other sleep difficulties
- Thinning hair
- Urinary problems
- Memory or concentration problems
- Shrinking of breast tissue
- Accumulation of belly fat
- Low fertility (when still perimenopausal)
- Irregular periods (when still perimenopausal)
If you are dealing with bone loss and have not responded well to other medications, hormone replacement therapy could be very beneficial for protecting your bones. It is often recommended for women who experience premature menopause, which is the term for when a woman stops having periods before she is 40.
