Hormone replacement therapy can be an overwhelming process. With so many different options, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. North Cypress Women’s Center and Dr. Imtiaz want to make this process a little less difficult for you. Let’s layout your options in this easy-to-read guide.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is proven to provide safer and more effective results for men and women doing hormone replacement therapy, showing fewer side effects when compared to traditional therapies. This type of therapy can help treat low libido, sleeping problems, anxiety, depression, fatigue, weight gain, weakness, joint pain and more in patients.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is one of many hormones in the human body that regulates functions that are important for physical, mental and emotional health. Both men and women have testosterone in their bodies, but it is more common for men to get testosterone replacement therapy. Benefits of this treatment include enhanced libido, muscle structure, bone development, red blood cell development, emotional well-being, decreases depression and anxiety, and helps fatigue.
Estrogen Replacement Therapy
The older we get, the lower our estrogen levels become. Decreased levels of estrogen can affect your emotional and physical well-being. Estrogen replacement therapy helps to manage vaginal dryness, decreased libido, reduced bone density (osteoporosis), mood changes, reduced mental clarity, menstrual migraine headaches, and more.
Estrogen Dominance in Women
Estrogen dominance happens when women’s progesterone levels are not balanced with their estrogen levels. This can not only be damaging to your emotional health, but it can also wreak havoc on your body physically. Benefits of this treatment include reducing the following health problems, such as depression, high blood pressure, hair loss, fibroids, lack of libido, memory loss and more.
Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy
Traditional hormone replacement therapy is not a “one size fits all” solution for women. The best is when Dr. Imtiaz can get to know your body and the hormones that need to be replaced. Ultimately, this type of therapy can help in reducing signs of menopause, like vaginal dryness, hot flashes and night sweats, bone loss, mood changes, lack of libido, weight gain and fatigue.
BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy
BioTE® Hormone Pellet Therapy is a pellet implant that slowly releases hormones into the body. Benefits of this treatment include having a consistent stream of hormones to regulate your body’s hormone levels.
