Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
At DT Gynecology, we know that if you are a man or woman suffering from hormone imbalances, you could be experiencing a variety of symptoms which affect your general health and quality of life. You don’t have to “just deal with it” any longer!
How do I know if Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may be right for me?
Hormone imbalances are often caused by natural aging, female menopause or male andropause, obesity or chronic medical conditions.
Hormone replacement treatment (HRT) often helps resolve symptoms of imbalances, such as:
- Low energy
- Weight gain
- Lack of response to exercise & diet
- Joint & muscle aches
- “Brain fog”
- Lack of concentration
- Low mood or irritability
- Reduced sex drive
- Unsatisfactory sexual performance
- Vaginal dryness
- Erectie dysfunction
- Hair and skin changes
- Sleep problems
… and more!
What happens during my first hormone replacement therapy appointment?
We perform a medical evaluation with bloodwork for careful analysis of your hormone levels. Based on these assessments and your desired results, we then recommend a customized program of bioidentical hormone therapy. We use tiny hormone pellets placed painlessly under the skin on the back of the hip every 3-4 months. This pellet method has proven to be extremely safe since it bypasses liver metabolism. Since it is extracted from plants and identical in cellular structure to your own hormones, side effects are less pronounced than other medication forms. Quarterly follow-up visits ensure continued progress and allow for any necessary alterations.
