Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

HRT is a treatment to restore balance in your natural hormone levels. Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers that control many of your biological functions. As you age, your hormone levels begin to decline, which can trigger a range of life-disrupting symptoms in men and women. Femhealth Group, LLC, provides customized HRT care plans for adults. Dr. Martinez can meet with you in the Miramar office to provide guidance on your therapy plan. 

When should I consider hormone replacement therapy?

You might be a candidate for the hormone replacement therapy services available at Femhealth Group, LLC if you experience symptoms of a hormone imbalance. Both men and women might have hormone-related issues like:

  • Low sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Persistent fatigue

Women might experience vaginal dryness and pain with sex during menopause, the time when your periods stop for good. During the menopause transition, your body slows down its production of estrogen and other reproductive hormones, which can lead to an imbalance. Men can develop low testosterone as they get older. A loss of testosterone can lead to erectile dysfunction, mood swings, and loss of muscle mass. Dr. Martinez can request bloodwork to assess your hormone levels and identify a hormone imbalance. She also reviews your current health and medical history to ensure you’re a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy. 

What happens during hormone replacement therapy?

During hormone replacement therapy, you take supplemental hormones to rebalance the hormones your body makes naturally. Femhealth Group, LLC, provides several delivery methods for supplemental hormones, including:

  • Oral pills
  • Patches
  • Injections
  • Creams

Dr. Martinez can also perform a simple procedure in-office to insert a hormone pellet beneath the surface of your skin. The pellet releases a steady stream of hormones over several months to properly balance your natural hormones. Many people find fast and lasting relief from troublesome symptoms soon after starting HRT. Dr. Martinez continues to monitor your success with treatment during follow-up visits in-office and can adjust your dosage as needed. Call the Femhealth Group, LLC, today to schedule a hormone replacement therapy consultation or book an appointment online.
