Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
HRT is a medical treatment that involves replacing hormones that are no longer being produced by the body, typically estrogen and progesterone, as well as testosterone for women and testosterone for men.
Do women need testosterone?
Yes. Our ovaries and adrenal glands make this hormone as well!
Who is a candidate for HRT?
HRT may be recommended for women who are experiencing moderate to severe symptoms of menopause and who do not have contraindications, such as a history of breast cancer or blood clots. Men who have low testosterone levels may also be candidates for HRT.
How is HRT administered?
HRT can be administered in several ways, including pills, troches, patches, creams, gels, pellets and injections.
What are the benefits of HRT?
In addition to alleviating menopausal symptoms and reducing the risk of certain diseases like dementia and cardiovascular disease, HRT may also improve bone density, cognitive function, and overall quality of life.
Can HRT be used for birth control?
No, HRT should not be used as a form of birth control. It is not effective at preventing pregnancy and can actually increase the risk of pregnancy in women who still have a uterus. If you are on birth control, we may use Testosterone or Progesterone depending on your symptoms to help balance your hormones.
Can men use HRT?
Yes, men with low testosterone levels may benefit from TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). It can help alleviate symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, decreased libido, and muscle weakness.
How do I know if HRT is right for me?
If you feel like you are experiencing symptoms of menopause or low testosterone levels, your healthcare provider can help determine if HRT or TRT is an appropriate treatment option for you based on your medical history, symptoms, and individual risk factors.
