Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A
Why do I need hormone replacement therapy?
It’s normal for your hormones to start plummeting as you get older, or as a result of chronic health issues. While low hormones are often associated with women going through menopause, men can struggle with hormonal imbalances, too. You may benefit from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) if you experience:
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
- Poor concentration
- Decreased memory
- Mood swings
- Hot flashes
In many cases, these symptoms start improving — or resolve altogether — shortly after starting your hormone replacement therapy treatment.
Which type of hormone replacement therapy do I need?
At No Mercy Sports Medicine, Dr. Irizarry-Román talks with you about your symptoms and runs labs to check your hormone levels. Once he understands which hormones need replenishing, like estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone, he can design your treatment plan. Your personalized HRT may include:
- Vaginal creams
- Topical ointments
Because no two hormone replacement therapy needs are the same, Dr. Irizarry-Román may combine different formularies to help you get maximum benefits. For instance, sometimes it’s best to take oral hormone medication daily.
Other times, though, Dr. Irizarry-Román might suggest using your HRT in cycles every few weeks. It just depends on your overall health and family medical history and the severity of your symptoms.
How long does it take hormone replacement therapy to work?
Since hormone replacement therapy treatments from No Mercy Sports Medicine are personalized to you and you only, you can expect fast and effective results. You should start noticing an improvement from your hormone imbalance symptoms within the first couple of weeks, with optimal benefits often by the end of your first month.
Dr. Irizarry-Román has you follow up every few months to run labs and make any essential adjustments to your HRT plan. He can always change the dosage or formulary of your hormone replacement at any time to ensure your hormones balance out and your symptoms resolve.
