What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone Replacement Therapy Overview

Hormone replacement therapy, often referred to as HRT, is typically used to treat women and help ensure that women going through the menopause can balance levels of progesterone as well as estrogen. However, HRT can be used for a variety of other reasons too. For instance, it can be used for anti-aging purposes, to reduce unpleasant symptoms for particular health conditions and speed up the speeding process. HRT may also assist with muscle growth and provide general health benefits.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy is used to treat men who have a lower level of testosterone. Men can start to see the effects of a gradual decline in testosterone levels as they age. Many men also experience low levels of testosterone due to a wide range of health conditions. TRT can be used to treat these issues. 

What Can Hormone Replacement Therapy Treat?

HRT can be used to treat a wide range of health issues. If you are a man with a low level of testosterone, you might have issues with increased fatigue, erectile dysfunction or low sex drive. Men may also notice a change in the muscle and body fat ratio of their bodies. For women, HRT is used to treat medical issues associated with the menopause such as vaginal dryness and significant hot flashes that cause discomfort or impact your quality of life. HRT can also be used to support women who have had a hysterectomy.

Benefits Of Hormone Replacement Therapy

There are numerous benefits of HRT. People with low levels of testosterone or general hormone imbalances will often witness tremendous improvements to their physical and mental health. Muscle function improves dramatically and there is a reduced risk of heart attacks or heart failure. People who use HRT also find that they have more energy and stamina as well as improved levels of sexual wellness. You might also notice that after HRT you find it easier to focus and achieve mental clarity. 

As such, if you are the right candidate for HRT you will see tremendous improvements to your overall quality of life. 

Am I a Candidate For Hormone Replacement Therapy? 

If you need to regain the right control of your hormone levels, then you will be the right candidate for hormone replacement therapy. However, this will depend on the individual and the issues that they are experiencing. Typically, HRT will help you feel the way you used to and improve your general health. 

You could also be a candidate if you are a man with a low level of testosterone. On average testosterone levels decrease by 1% annually. Low levels of testosterone can also occur due to a variety of health conditions. With a full course of treatment issues associated with low testosterone can gradually improve.
