What do hormones do for my body?

Your hormones regulate many crucial aspects of your health, from your metabolism to your mood, sleep, libido, energy level, and many other functions.

Women experience a sharp drop in estrogen and progesterone (the main female hormones) during menopause sometime in their 40s or 50s, which leads to many unpleasant symptoms throughout the body.

Men can also experience hormone problems, but their hormone loss happens more gradually over many years and symptoms are more subtle than the changes associated with menopause. 

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that replenishes lost hormones and restores balance within your body. There are many ways to replace lost hormones, including: 

  • Pills
  • Injections of small pellets 
  • Patches
  • Topical creams
  • Vaginal suppositories
  • Vaginal rings
  • Nasal sprays

The dose of hormones used in hormone replacement therapy varies with each person. The goal is to restore your body’s hormone level to its pre-menopause or former levels. 

The Zeam Medical Group team fully evaluates all your symptoms to determine what type of hormones to recommend and what dose to start with. They can adjust your dose over time based on your response.

When might I need hormone replacement therapy?

You could need hormone replacement therapy if you’re experiencing unpleasant effects of menopause, with symptoms such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain 

If these symptoms happen on a regular basis or start to interrupt your regular activities, talk to the Zeam Medical Group team about hormone replacement therapy. Every person must evaluate the benefits of hormone replacement therapy individually, and the team can work with you to help you understand how this treatment option can work for you. 

In addition to hormone replacement therapy, the team may recommend weight-loss management, a new exercise plan, and changing your diet to help you better cope with the symptoms of menopause.

During menopause, your risk of osteoporosis (bone thinning) increases. Hormone replacement therapy can minimize that risk, but it’s still important to have osteoporosis screening (a bone density scan) as part of your preventive care starting from the age of 65. 

Hormone replacement therapy can relieve your menopausal symptoms and allow you to return to your active life. To learn more about what it can do for you, call the Zeam Medical Group office nearest to you or use the online scheduling feature to make your appointment today.
