What Is Hormone Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment typically used for women who are going through menopause. Menopause causes a lot of hormonal changes in a woman’s body, including decreased estrogen levels.
Hormone therapy simply replaces these hormones into your body to relieve the symptoms of menopause. You can discuss your options with one of our doctors, choosing between hormone therapy treatments that contain progesterone and estrogen, estrogen only, or even testosterone.
Why Do You Need It?
As a woman begins menopause or perimenopause, she can start to develop symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and pain during intercourse. If you have these symptoms, you may want to ask a doctor about starting hormone replacement therapy.
At Living Springs Womens Care, we can help you know if you are a good candidate for hormone therapy. We take the time to listen to our patients and hear their concerns rather than giving everyone a one-size-fits-all treatment. We make sure that your voice is heard and that we consider your total well-being instead of just treating symptoms — but we make sure the symptoms are taken care of as well.
