Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

I don’t feel like I used to. Can hormone replacement therapy help?

Yes. Hormone replacement therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that relieves uncomfortable symptoms associated with the aging process. Specifically, it helps to relieve two common age-related problems:

Menopause symptoms

Menopause occurs when a woman goes 12 months without having a menstrual cycle. It’s a natural part of getting older but often triggers symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and hair loss. 

Low testosterone

After age 30, men experience a significant decline in testosterone production –– about 1% each year. Without taking steps to restore balance to your testosterone levels, you’re more likely to develop symptoms like erectile dysfunction, excess weight, and muscle loss.

Who should consider hormone replacement therapy?

Consider hormone replacement therapy at Prime MediSpa if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Dry skin, eyes, or mouth
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low energy (fatigue)
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Loss of muscle mass

After a physical exam and lab work, Dr. Taweh can determine if your hormone levels are below normal and make personalized treatment recommendations.

Are there different types of hormone replacement therapy?

Prime MediSpa offers several types of hormone replacement therapy, including:

Estrogen therapy

This type of hormone replacement therapy restores and balances a woman’s estrogen levels. It’s prescribed in small doses to reduce the risk of side effects. 

Estrogen progesterone/progestin hormone therapy (EPT)

Dr. Taweh recommends EPT hormone replacement therapy if you have low estrogen and progesterone. 

Testosterone replacement therapy

This type of hormone replacement therapy is prescribed to people with male reproductive organs. It balances testosterone levels, helping you feel younger and more vibrant.

How is hormone replacement therapy administered?

Prime MediSpa offers hormone therapy in several forms, including:

  • Implantable pellets
  • Patches
  • Pills
  • Vaginal rings
  • Gels
  • Creams
  • Sprays

The treatment approach that will most benefit you depends on several factors, including your age and the severity of the imbalance. After a physical exam and blood work, Dr. Taweh develops a personalized treatment plan.

How long does it take for hormone replacement therapy to work?

Most people notice an improvement in their symptoms within a few weeks of starting hormone replacement therapy, but it can take longer. To ensure a positive outcome, follow Dr. Taweh’s instructions and attend each of your follow-up appointments.
