Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a government-approved treatment for menopause symptoms. During menopause, estrogen levels drop dramatically. The lower levels of estrogen cause symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and mood swings. HRT increases estrogen levels to within a normal range, providing relief of the symptoms associated with menopause.

Why do I need hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy alleviates symptoms of menopause without harsh chemicals. At DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology, the healthcare professionals work as a team to have you feeling like your normal self. If you have noticed a change in your period and other symptoms of menopause, speak with the doctors about your individual issues. They’ll recommend a personalized treatment plan to determine the optimum dose of HRT for you and your needs.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

In addition to relief from menopause symptoms, HRT offers other benefits to women being treated. HRT helps improve sleep and reduce bone loss from osteoporosis. The change in the quality of life also affects your mood. Night sweats lessen with correct doses of HRT. As menopause progresses from perimenopause to postmenopausal, the team adjusts HRT treatments as needed. Working closely with the doctors at DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology ensures ideal dosing for the shortest amount of time to avoid unwanted side effects.

What forms of hormone replacement therapy are available?

HRT is available in several forms. The experienced and caring team at DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology explain and recommend which form of HRT you need based on the symptoms you are experiencing. There are two forms of HRT medication: systemic products and local products. Systemic products circulate in your bloodstream and include oral tablets, patches, gels, and injections. Local products work in a specific area, usually the vagina, and are available in cream, ring, or tablets.

HRT has been proven to provide relief from the symptoms of menopause and reduce bone loss. For your well-being and peace of mind, contact the expert team at DaVincii Obstetrics & Gynecology for your consultation about hormone replacement therapy to book an appointment.
