Hormone Replacement Therapy
Get access to effective and safe hormone replacement therapy for men and women.
Aging affects people’s health in different ways. Women, especially, become more vulnerable to numerous health conditions as they reach the age of 45. This is commonly due to hormonal imbalances associated with menopause. Hormonal deficiency is also common in adult men. Their testosterone levels begin to drop by the age of 40, causing unusual symptoms that make physical activity a daily challenge.
Today, experts have found that one effective method to restore optimum hormone levels is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). West Coast Family Medical Care offers safe and reliable HRT tailored to every patient’s needs and preferences. Our medical team is here to guide you in finding the best HRT treatment to help you feel your best self again.
Our Hormone Replacement Therapy
West Coast Family Medical Care is a compassionate team that helps men and women navigate the changes that come with aging. We offer a variety of HRT treatments to suit different healthcare needs and goals. Our HRT treatment includes:
Taking prescription tablets is the simplest way of undergoing hormone replacement therapy. Estrogen-only and combined HRT (estrogen and progestogen) are readily available in tablets and can be accessed with a prescription.
If you find it inconvenient to take tablets every day, skin patches are the best option for you. Using patches can also help avoid indigestion. Both estrogen-only and combined HRT patches are available in patches.
Estrogen gel is used to reduce the severity of some symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, vaginal irritation, and dryness. For better results, the gel must be applied to the affected area once a day.
Vaginal estrogen comes as a cream, ring, or pessary applied or placed inside the vagina. This type of HRT also helps patients relieve the symptoms of menopause, including vaginal dryness, itching, and burning.
Implants provide long-lasting relief from symptoms of menopause. They last for several months before needing a replacement. This form of HRT involves numbing the skin with local anesthesia and implanting a small pellet under the skin.
Like estrogen, testosterone is also available as a gel that patients rub onto the skin. Testosterone HRT is currently recommended for men with low testosterone levels and women with low sex drive or libido.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
HRT is widely accepted in the medical field and continues to prove its benefits to many seeking patients. Hormone therapy is found to help:
As you age, you can feel a gradual decline in your emotional, physical, sexual, and physiological health due to hormonal changes. While most people accept these changes, you don’t have to. With hormone replacement therapy, experts can help you manage menopausal symptoms and restore your body’s optimal health.
Approximately 80% of older adults suffer from chronic conditions. These chronic illnesses are usually tied to hormonal imbalances in the body. Hormone replacement therapy can help regulate the hormonal changes that come with aging. It can help boost immunity and reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions.
The effects of hormone replacement therapy differ for every adult. While HRT commonly helps improve sexual function, it is also found to increase muscle mass and strength and boost energy. But mainly, HRT has helped patients live life to the fullest despite the confusing hormonal changes and unusual symptoms caused by aging.
