What does Hormone Replacement Therapy do?
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the process of increasing the amount of hormones available for your body to use. Here at Hormones by Design we use Bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are the same structure and chemical makeup as the hormones your body produced when you were younger. We can replace estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone for our patients.
However, what HRT does is so much more than just replacement. Most women seek out hormone therapy when they begin to suffer from any of the following symptoms: hot flashes, night sweats, low sex drive, lack of energy, foggy thinking, mood swings, vaginal dryness, weight gain, hair loss, and much more. These symptoms can be present both before and after menopause. In fact, patients in our offices range in age from their 30s to their 80s. It is never too early or too late to seek treatment if any of these symptoms are bothering you.
When you begin HRT, you should start to see these symptoms improve or go away completely in a few weeks. By replacing your hormones, you are helping your body to function more like it did when you were younger. In short, HRT can help give you your life back.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, I encourage you to seek out the help of a qualified specialist in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
We have offices in Waco, Boerne, San Antonio, and New Braunfels, Texas. We want to help you get your life back.
