What You Need to Know About Female Hormone Replacement Therapy
Updated: May 25
A Women’s Hormone Clinic Can Help You Feel More Like Yourself
It’s widely accepted: as you age, your body undergoes changes. And if you’re a woman, that means you’ll eventually reach menopause and experience all the things that come along with it. As a woman, you’ll even experience hormonal changes at various life stages.
A visit to your local hormone replacement center, like Restorative Health, can, well, restore your health to the level it once was, when you felt the most energetic, youthful, and vibrant.
Before making an appointment, be sure you know these very important facts about female hormone replacement therapy.
You Don’t Have to Endure Uncomfortable Menopause Symptoms
For many women, the onset of menopause is the beginning of a horrible life change. The symptoms that accompany menopause can be incredibly uncomfortable and varied, negatively affecting quality of life. (Of course, there are some women who have few issues - and that’s normal, too.)
If you’re a woman whose menopause symptoms include things like:
then you might be interested in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women at a women’s hormone clinic. You do not need to suffer through these symptoms.
And female hormone replacement therapy can be good for you in other ways, too. Studies have shown that women who start hormone therapy within 10 years of entering menopause have a 30 percent lower mortality rate and 48 percent decreased risk of heart disease compared to women without these life-changing - and life-saving - therapies.
Hormone Therapy Versus Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure and makeup as those that your body produces - or used to produce - on its own. However, bioidentical hormones are engineered to match human hormones but come from plant tissues.
Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, have a similar molecular structure to the hormones your body once produced on its own. Because of the slightly altered structure, synthetic hormones can behave differently and produce different effects than natural or bioidentical ones.
Bioidentical hormones can be easier on your body as you enter menopause, and come in just as many types as synthetic hormones, so there’s one that will work well for you and your lifestyle.
Types of HRT
There currently are more than 50 types of hormone replacement therapy on the market today. Your physician at Restorative Health can determine which formulation and dosage will be the best for you, your body, your menopause symptoms, and your life.
Bioidentical hormone replacement contains both estradiol and progesterone. You can take it orally, via a topical cream, as a vaginal insert, or even transdermally, meaning under your skin in your fatty tissue.
If you aren’t sure which one you’d like to try, don’t worry! We can narrow down your choices for you, calculate your dosage, and get you feeling more like yourself, all in one visit to our hormone replacement center.
What is the O-Shot?
Complementary treatments for hormone therapy can give you the boost you need to return to the life you know and love. For example, you can combine your hormone replacement therapy with an O-Shot, which also is suitable for women who have not yet begun menopause.
The O-Shot is a natural injection that boosts your libido, improves vaginal dryness, and helps you experience greater sexual pleasure with stronger, more frequent orgasms. Many women who get an O-Shot see a difference right away, but many experience improvement over the course of a couple of months.
You can get an O-Shot at our women’s hormone clinic inside Restorative Health, with locations in Georgia, Ohio, Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri.
