Hormone Therapy

Because being even slightly 'off' can be frustrating


Hormone Therapy is the best way to feel great while aging - here's what hormones  do:

What are estrogen and progesterone?

Estrogen and progesterone are hormones that are produced by a woman’s ovaries.

What does estrogen do?

Estrogen plays a role in many body functions, including:

Thickens the lining of your uterus, preparing it for the possible implantation of a fertilized egg. Influences how your body uses calcium, an important bone-building mineral.-  Helps maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels. - Keeps your vagina healthy.
Helps prevent osteoporosis.

What does progesterone do?
Progesterone plays a role in many body functions, including:

Helps prepare your uterus for the implantation of a fertilized egg and maintains your pregnancy, Regulates blood pressure., Improves mood and sleep.

What is hormone therapy (HT)?
As you begin to transition into menopause, your ovaries no longer produce high levels of estrogen and progesterone. Changes in these hormone levels can cause uncomfortable symptoms. Common menopause symptoms include:

Hot flashes.
Night sweats and/or cold flashes.
Vaginal dryness; discomfort during sex.
Feeling a need to pee (urinary urgency).
Trouble sleeping (insomnia).
Mood swings, mild depression or irritability.
Dry skin, dry eyes or dry mouth.

Hormone therapy (HT) is used to boost your hormone levels and relieve some of the symptoms of menopause. Whether or not you should consider taking HT therapy is a discussion to have with your healthcare provider. There are many health benefits and risks associated with taking HT.

What are the types of hormone therapy (HT)?
There are two main types of hormone therapy (HT):

Estrogen Therapy: Estrogen is taken alone. Doctors most often prescribe a low dose of estrogen to be taken as a pill or patch every day. Estrogen may also be prescribed as a cream, vaginal ring, gel or spray. You should take the lowest dose of estrogen needed to relieve menopause symptoms and/or to prevent osteoporosis.
Estrogen Progesterone/Progestin Hormone Therapy (EPT): Also called combination therapy, this form of HT combines doses of estrogen and progesterone (or progestin, a synthetic form of progesterone).
