Hormone Replacement Therapy
What are some common signs and symptoms of hormone deficiency?
A variety of symptoms may indicate signs of hormone deficiency. These symptoms can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.
Common symptoms include:
How is HRT administered?
Hormone pellets are small, solid cylinders containing bioidentical hormones. They are inserted under the skin, typically in the hip area, during a minor outpatient procedure. Pellets provide a slow, continuous release of hormones over several months.
Topical creams or gels containing hormones are applied to the skin daily. The hormones are absorbed into the bloodstream. Creams offer flexibility in adjusting the dosage and can be applied to specific areas of the body.
Hormones can be administered through weekly intramuscular injections. In this method, either you or your healthcare professional injects the hormones directly into a muscle or beneath the skin. Injections allow for precise dosing, and the frequency of administration depends on the specific hormone
and individual needs.
Hormones can be taken orally in pill form. This method is convenient and familiar to many people. However, oral hormones pass through the digestive system and the liver, which can affect their efficacy and increase the risk of certain side effects.
