What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment option for people who are suffering from hormonal imbalances. Individuals who are transgendered can also use HRT to deliver the hormones their body needs.
Hormone replacement therapy is most often associated with women who are seeking relief from the symptoms of perimenopause or menopause symptoms, including:
- Vaginal dryness
- Low sex drive
- Mood swings
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Thinning hair
Hormone therapy can treat several hormonal imbalances including testosterone, estrogen, androgens, and other hormones. Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses synthetic hormones that are identical to those your body produces naturally.
You may also have the option of choosing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT is the same as traditional HRT except instead of using synthetic hormones, the hormones are derived from plant estrogens. Both types of hormone therapy have been said to be equally effective.
Hormone Therapy for Progesterone Imbalance
People who are dealing with a progesterone imbalance will often suffer from a wide variety of symptoms, some of which include:
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Irregular or absent menstrual cycles
- Breast tenderness
- Gallbladder problems
- Decreased sex drive
- Dry skin
- Cracked nails
If you are interested in treating your progesterone imbalance with hormone therapy, you’ll need to speak with your doctor. Some individuals may not be suitable candidates for hormone replacement therapy.
For example, if you have a history of blood clots, high blood pressure, or reproductive cancer, your doctor may determine hormone therapy is not a good fit for you. With that being said, your physician msut examine your medical history and symptoms, and the other treatment options you may have tried, before deciding.
If they recommend you try hormone therapy, you should be able to trust your doctor has weighed the benefits and risks and has determined the benefits of hormone therapy supersede the risks.
