What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is most commonly used to treat premenopausal conditions in women. There are a few more uses, but here, we will concentrate on the use of HRT to treat conditions related to menopause.
As women age, their reproductive system changes. In young women, the eggs maturing in the ovaries produce the hormone estrogen. As egg production slows, so does the production of estrogen.
As estrogen levels decrease, a woman can experience uncomfortable symptoms such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Dry skin
- Hair loss
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during intercourse
- Sleep difficulties
- Concentration or memory problems
- Accumulation of belly fat
Along with the discomfort, lower estrogen levels are also associated with serious medical conditions such as:
- Bone loss or osteoporosis
- Heart disease
- Anxiety or depression
- Parkinson’s-like symptoms
Hormone replacement therapy can help ease the symptoms and prevent the health conditions that are associated with menopause.
A Closer Look at Hormone Pellets
Traditionally, HRT is delivered in pills, patches, creams or sprays which address the low hormone levels throughout the whole system. These forms of treatment are called systemic hormone therapy.
A hormone pellet is the hormone medication compacted into a pellet the size of a grain of rice. The pellets are inserted under the skin in a simple in-office procedure. Research suggests that hormone pellets deliver a more consistent flow of hormones than any other type of HRT delivery system.
Why Embrace Hormone Pellets?
Menopausal symptoms can impact your quality of life. Dry skin, hair loss and hot flashes can all affect your comfort, not to mention your self-esteem and confidence.
Menopause is associated with serious medical conditions. With hormone pellets, you can continue to be busy enjoying your life rather than allowing these conditions to arise.
Why let moodiness, anxiety or depression interfere with your family life? You can take control of your hormone balance and avoid the negative feelings that can come with an imbalance with hormone pellets.
