What is hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?
HRT is a medical treatment that aims to restore hormonal balance in individuals experiencing hormonal deficiencies or imbalances. It involves the administration of synthetic hormones to supplement or replace the hormones that the body may no longer produce in adequate amounts.
Who can benefit from hormone replacement therapy?
HRT is beneficial for both men and women who are experiencing symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances or deficiencies. These symptoms may include fatigue, low libido, weight gain, mood swings, hot flashes, and reduced cognitive function. HRT can help alleviate these symptoms and enhance overall well-being.
What hormones are commonly replaced through HRT?
The hormones commonly replaced in our practice include testosterone, growth hormone, thyroid hormone, estrogen, and progesterone. The specific hormones used in HRT will depend on the individual’s needs and hormone levels determined through comprehensive testing.
What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?
HRT offers a range of benefits, including increased energy levels, improved libido and sexual function, enhanced mood and mental clarity, better sleep quality, reduced menopausal symptoms, improved muscle tone and bone density, and overall vitality and well-being.
Are there any risks or side effects associated with hormone replacement therapy?
As with any medical treatment, there may be some risks and side effects associated with HRT. However, when managed by a qualified healthcare professional, the risks are typically minimal. Side effects, if any, are usually temporary and can be managed effectively.
How is hormone replacement therapy administered?
HRT in our clinic is replaced with subcutaneous injections or oral medications. The method of administration will depend on the specific hormone being replaced and the individual’s preferences and needs.
How long does hormone replacement therapy last?
Keeping in mind that our hormone levels continue to decline as we get older, it is recommended that patients stay on HRT indefinitely. Regular monitoring and adjustments are essential to ensure optimal hormone balance.

When overseen by a qualified healthcare professional and conducted with proper monitoring, hormone replacement therapy is generally considered safe. Our clinic adheres to best practices and closely monitors each patient’s progress to ensure safety and efficacy.
How soon can I expect to see results from hormone replacement therapy?
The timeline for experiencing the benefits of HRT can vary from person to person. While some individuals may notice improvements within a few weeks, others may require several months to achieve optimal results. Your personalized treatment plan will be tailored to your specific needs and goals.
