Hormone Replacement Therapy
As women age, it is common for their hormone levels to decline, affecting their overall health. Adult and menopausal women may experience hot flashes, mood swings, and/or a lower sex drive. It could just be related to your hormones.
Fortunately, Women’s Personal Physicians in Miami, Florida has a solution for female hormonal imbalances and deficiencies – hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
HRT is used by gynecologists to treat a variety of symptoms caused by hormone changes including:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Decreased sex drive
- Vaginal atrophy and dryness
- Water retention
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Osteoporosis (bone loss)
- Weight gain or inability to lose weight
- Frequent bladder infections
- Irritability, anxiety, or depression
- Difficulty sleeping
Female HRT Assessment
At Women’s Personal Physicians, we can help balance your hormones. Our female HRT begins with a discussion of your symptoms, a physical examination, and a thorough assessment of your medical history. Next, your personal physician will measure and evaluate the following hormone levels:
- Free and total testosterone
- Cortisol x 4
- Chem 14
Based on these hormone levels, your doctor will create a personalized treatment plan to treat your hormonal imbalance or deficiency. Options may include bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) through hormone pellets, weight management techniques, and/or vitamins and supplements specifically designed to treat your symptoms.
Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones your body naturally produces. They’re derived from plant estrogens and come in a variety of delivery forms. At Women’s Personal Physicians, we provide bioidentical hormones via implanted pellets or oral capsules.
