As a woman goes through menopause, the production of certain hormones slows down or stops. This can result in many symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and weight gain. One popular treatment for these conditions is hormone replacement therapy. There are many benefits to this treatment, but is it right for everyone? Read on to discover who qualifies for hormone replacement.
Types of Hormone Replacement Therapy
There are two main hormones that need replacing during and after menopause. They are estrogen and progesterone. Women who have hormone replacement generally take replacements for both of those hormones. Here at Medical Aesthetics of New England, you can take your hormone therapy in a variety of ways, including gels, creams, pills, and pellets. We must mention and emphasize that we recommend pellet-based hormone replacement therapy above all other delivery methods as we find it to be the most effective.
Who Should Consider Hormone Replacement Therapy?
You may be an ideal candidate for hormone replacement therapy if you are in good general health and harbor realistic expectations about what this option can do for you. We do not recommend that bio-hormone replacement therapy be used indefinitely as side effects and health concerns tend to increase from the onset of menopause; as such, we advise that you take the smallest dose necessary for the shortest time possible.
