Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that can restore hormone imbalance that often occurs with age and menopause. Hormone therapy is noninvasive and can drastically restore your quality of life if you suffer from fatigue, vaginal dryness, or other unpleasant symptoms.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Common symptoms you may experience with hormone imbalance include:

  • Weight gain
  • A slow metabolism
  • Fatigue
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Mood changes
  • Sleeping problems
  • Hot flashes, night sweats, or chills
  • Dry skin or hair thinning
  • Decreased breast fullness

You don’t have to live with these or other symptoms associated with hormone problems. See the experts at FemmPro OB/GYN at the first sign of unusual or unpleasant symptoms.

How does my provider diagnose hormone imbalance?

To diagnose hormone imbalance, your OB/GYN specialist reviews your medical history and asks about symptoms you may have. They complete a physical examination and recommend blood tests to check estrogen, progesterone, and other hormone levels.

What are my hormonal therapy treatment options?

After receiving the lab test results, your provider might recommend one of the following types of hormone replacement therapy:

  • Pills
  • Skin patches
  • Vaginal rings
  • Gels
  • Creams
  • Sprays
  • Subdermal pellets
  • Vaginal tablets

Vaginal hormone therapy applications, such as vaginal tablets, rings, or creams, minimize the amount of estrogen your body absorbs. That’s why low-dose vaginal products are often a good solution for urinary and vaginal symptoms associated with menopause.

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

Your doctor reviews the risks and benefits of each type of hormone replacement therapy to find a treatment that best matches your needs and preferences. You might not be a good candidate for hormone therapy if you’re at risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, or other chronic conditions.

Your expert providers monitor your hormones periodically using lab tests and make adjustments to your treatment regimen as needed.
