Our hormones play a vital role in regulating how we feel physically and emotionally. Everything is usually okay until one or more of our hormone levels become imbalanced, causing an array of unpleasant symptoms. These symptoms may include hair loss, low libido, weight gain, mood swings, depression, night sweats, hot flashes, and a lack of energy. If you have been experiencing these issues and are looking to get your life back on track, you may be considering hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone replacement therapy involves the use of injections, pellets, or patches that assist to replenish hormone levels to get your symptoms to level off. This treatment could benefit you in a number of ways.
Hormone imbalances may cause weight gain and lower levels of confidence in your appearance. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy can help you to shed that excess weight. This works by jump-starting your body’s metabolism the way it would normally work had your hormone levels not changed so drastically to begin with.
If hormone replacement pellets are the option chosen by you, rest assured knowing that you will not forget your daily medication. This treatment method releases hormones into your bloodstream slowly for a period of time, making it so you do not have to worry about remembering if you missed a dose.
Romantic relationships can be overwhelming enough, but sexual difficulties and tapering sexual desire may cause hurt feelings. If you have been having these types of relationship problems with your partner, imbalanced hormones may be the underlying cause. Hormone replacement therapy can help to increase your libido while decreasing instances of erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness.
Night sweats and hot flashes may make daily living extremely difficult. Hormone replacement therapy can work to curb these symptoms and help you to get restful sleep again.
Hormones help to even out everything from mood, weight, energy levels, and libido, and whenever they become unstable, so can our lives. If you have been experiencing weight gain, lower energy, lack of sexual desire, hair loss, depression, night sweats, and mood swings, consult with our experts at Herrera Medical Group in Lewisville to determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
