You may have heard about hormone replacement therapy, but you’re not sure whether or not it’s something you could benefit from. You are starting to experience troubling symptoms as you approach middle age. You’re irritable, you have difficulty concentrating, and you are dealing with hair loss. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. You owe it to yourself to learn more about hormone replacement therapy, including how it can benefit you specifically.
Hormone replacement therapy is most commonly used in women who are going through menopause. In this instance, the therapy replaces hormones that the body is no longer making. But hormone replacement therapy is also used by men and women for a wide variety of other reasons, and it might be just what you have been looking for to feel like yourself again.
The benefits of hormone replacement therapy will vary depending on a variety of factors. The therapy can relieve some of the unwanted symptoms of menopause, such as night sweats, vaginal dryness, itching, or pain during sexual intercourse.
You may want to consider hormone replacement therapy when you are dealing with severe hot flashes or other symptoms of menopause that are considered severe. Some imbalances in your hormones may have affected your bone production and you may have lost bone mass to the point where other treatments are not benefiting you. Additionally, women who are going through a premature type of menopause, which is a menopause that begins before the age of 40, but who still have the normal function of their ovaries, should talk to our specialist about hormone replacement therapy.
There are a lot of negative risk factors that come from going through early menopause, but not taking any form of hormone replacement. These include things like an early death, Parkinson’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
