Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What causes hormone imbalance?

Hormones are specialized chemicals inside your body. They’re created in endocrine glands, and they play a role in nearly every bodily function, from immune support to metabolism. 

It’s normal for hormone levels to fluctuate throughout life, but as you age, hormone levels get lower and lower. In fact, your body may only be producing 80% of the essential hormones that it needs by the age of 35.

Hormonal imbalance can begin causing problems like low energy, low libido, and declining vitality as you get older. Menopause is linked to significant hormonal changes for women, and the risk of imbalance increases with age for men, too.

Why do I need hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the most effective way to balance out your hormones. It’s normal for your hormone levels to start plummeting, especially as you get older, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer in silence. 

You could benefit from hormone replacement therapy if you’re experiencing:

  • Weight gain
  • Low libido 
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Muscle loss
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Difficulty building up muscle mass
  • Fatigue
  • Moodiness
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of Concentration
  • Skin and/or hair changes

Hormonal changes can also leave you prone to bone loss — a condition called osteoporosis, which you may be unaware of until you have a fracture. This is another reason why it’s so important to have your hormone levels checked and get started on treatment if a hormonal imbalance is identified. 

When does hormone replacement therapy start working?

Most men and women who get started on hormone replacement therapy at Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics find that their symptoms start improving rather quickly. You should start noticing the benefits of HRT within the first week, with ongoing benefits with each passing week. 

The team at Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics has you check in regularly to draw blood and evaluate your hormone levels. They may adjust your HRT plan as needed to help you achieve optimal results. 

Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics proudly offers comprehensive hormone screening and personalized HRT programs with simple pricing. Programs are usually $199 to $299 per month based on individual needs.
