How Does Hormonal Replacement Therapy Help Menopause?

Is menopause taking a toll on you? Did you know that some of the symptoms you may be feeling are signs of low testosterone? You may be thinking that testosterone is strictly a male hormone, but this is not true. Women have testosterone too, and when women have a low testosterone level, they may suffer from hot flashes, vaginal dryness, low libido, and severe mood swings. Hormonal Replacement Therapy replaces hormones that the body no longer makes after menopause.

Hormonal Replacement Therapy

At NCCRM, we offer Hormonal Replacement Therapy to treat our patients with low testosterone levels. By implanting testosterone pellets beneath the skin, your testosterone levels may be restored for 3 to 5 months. It has been proved to prevent bone loss and reduce fractures in postmenopausal women. HRT may also improve sex drive, restore sleep patterns, and relieve depression, anxiety, and mood swings.

Risks

Although Hormonal Replacement Therapy can help alleviate symptoms of menopause, it does not come without risks. Those receiving HRT may be at risk for blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, and breast cancer. When considering this type of therapy, each woman must weigh the risks and benefits before making the commitment. Each individual is unique, so the risks can vary from person to person.

Precautions

Hormonal Replacement Therapy is not for everyone. You should not use Hormonal Replacement Therapy if you think that you are pregnant, have problems with vaginal bleeding, have had certain kinds of cancers, a previous stroke or heart attack, have had blood clots, or have liver disease.
