Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment option for women experiencing symptoms associated with menopause. As your hormone levels fluctuate, you may feel a number of symptoms, such as:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Low energy levels
  • Depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Moodiness

Hormone fluctuations cause symptoms you can’t feel, including loss of bone density and an increased risk of heart disease.

While the severity of these symptoms varies from woman to woman, you may be one whose symptoms affect her quality of life. Hormone replacement therapy may help lessen your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Who is a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy?

The team of women’s health experts at Grace Gynecology & Wellness determines if you’re a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy after an examination and review of your symptoms and medical history. The team knows that when it comes to hormone replacement therapy, one treatment doesn’t work for all women, and they offer a number of options to help you get relief, including natural and nonprescription hormone replacement therapy.

Due to risks associated with heart health and certain types of cancer, you may not be considered a good candidate for traditional hormone replacement therapy if you have a history of heart disease or breast cancer.

What is natural hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are considered a natural hormone replacement option for women. These hormones are created from substances found in foods such as yams and soy and modified to mimic the hormones naturally found in your body. Like traditional hormone replacement options, bioidentical hormone therapy relieves the symptoms caused by menopause and offers the same protective benefits -- such as improved heart and bone health -- as your natural hormones.

Grace Gynecology & Wellness uses Pro-Pell pellets as a hormone replacement option for women. The pellets are placed under your skin and provide a constant dose of hormones to provide the most effective relief.

The team at Grace Gynecology & Wellness takes a holistic approach to health and may also recommend supplements and alternative treatments to help you get relief from your symptoms and restore health and wellness.
