Hormone Therapy Q & A
What are hormones?
Hormones are chemicals produced by your endocrine glands. They travel in your blood and direct many of your body functions and processes, including:
Your body only needs a small number of hormones to function normally. However, any disruption in the production of your hormones may cause a slew of symptoms that affect your quality of life.
A decrease in the production of your sex hormones is a normal part of the aging process. This includes testosterone in men and women and estrogen and progesterone in women.
Without an adequate supply of these hormones, you may feel more fatigued, depressed, and anxious.
What is hormone therapy?
Hormone therapy is one of the many services offered at YOU & WEE Urologic Surgery & Wellness. The treatment helps men and women suffering from symptoms related to their declining sex hormone levels.
When you come in for a hormone therapy consultation, the team reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam. To determine if your symptoms are due to a hormone imbalance, they run lab tests to check your hormone levels.
Your provider uses the information gathered during your evaluation to develop your personalized hormone therapy treatment.
What are the benefits of hormone therapy?
The benefits of hormone therapy for your physical and emotional well-being include:
- Improved mental focus and clarity
- More energy
- Reignition of your libido
- Relief from menopause symptoms
- Relief from premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms
Hormone therapy may also offer protection from heart disease and stroke and improve bone health. You may also find that hormone therapy makes it easier for you to lose weight and build muscle.
What happens during hormone therapy?
YOU & WEE Urologic Surgery & Wellness offers a range of hormone therapy options to meet your specific needs, including oral medications, gels, and nasal sprays.
