When to Consider Hormone Therapy

Hormonal imbalance is an issue that impacts many people at various stages of life. Since hormones regulate various bodily processes, from hunger to reproduction to blood pressure, a hormonal imbalance can have a significant and negative impact on your wellbeing. 

If you’re currently experiencing a hormone imbalance, you may want to consider hormone therapy. In hormone therapy, patients take individualized doses of specific hormones to regain balance. This can improve or even eliminate symptoms stemming from hormonal issues.

Hormonal Imbalance for Menopause and Low Testosterone

Levels of the sex hormones, estrogen, and testosterone, steadily decline as people age. In women, this leads to menopause, which occurs about a year after a woman’s last period. The natural hormonal changes that occur with age lead to various symptoms that can impact your day-to-day life. 

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood changes
  • Vaginal dryness 
  • Painful intercourse
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue 
  • Trouble focusing 
  • Memory problems

Symptoms of low testosterone in men include:

  • Fatigue
  • Symptoms of depression
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Hair loss
  • Lost muscle mass
  • Mood changes
  • Trouble focusing
  • Memory problems

Considering Hormone Therapy

If declining estrogen or testosterone levels are diminishing your quality of life, hormone therapy is worth your consideration. This treatment option can ease uncomfortable symptoms of menopause or low testosterone while raising energy levels, boosting libido, and increasing bone density. 

Additionally, for women who undergo early menopause, hormone therapy is particularly important to consider. This is because early menopause can increase one’s risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, anxiety, depression, and parkinsonism.
