How does hormone replacement therapy work?

In women’s health, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is treatment for  hormonal imbalance. The team at NATT Weightloss and Women Health Solutions will order a panel of your hormone levels to determine whether or not you'll benefit from exogenous replacements of needed hormone. 

As you approach menopause in your 40s or 50s, your production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone fluctuate and may drop. As a result, you may experience new or unsettling symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety-like symptoms, and many more.

Hormone replacement therapy restores the balance of these hormones so you can feel better. The treatment introduces either bioidentical or synthetic forms of estrogen to interact with your body’s hormone receptors in the same way as your natural hormones. 


What does hormone replacement therapy treat in women?

If you experience severe symptoms as you approach menopause, especially if they’re disruptive to your daily life, consider visiting NATT Weightloss and Women Health Solutions for a HRT consultation. 


Hormone replacement therapy with estrogen can treat symptoms like:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Slow metabolism and weight gain
  • Mood fluctuations
  • Osteoporosis and frequent bone fractures

Along with hormone replacement therapy, you should make healthy lifestyle choices to improve your symptoms. These should include eating nutritious foods, exercising regularly, avoiding smoking, and managing stress. 


What should I expect from hormone replacement therapy?

When you get hormone replacement therapy to manage an imbalance, the hormones can be provided in a few different ways. The team at NATT Weightloss and Women Health Solutions offers options including:

  • Pills
  • Patches
  • Gels
  • Suppositories
  • Vaginal rings

The team personalizes your care plan to ensure the lowest possible dose of hormones for the shortest amount of time to minimize your risk of experiencing side effects.
