Hormone therapy, or hormone replacement therapy, is a treatment that can significantly reduce some of the effects that aging has on your body and wellness.
No matter your gender, the aging process affects your hormone levels. They may fluctuate dramatically and cause difficult or unforeseen symptoms that affect your day-to-day life. It’s especially common for women to experience hormone fluctuations or imbalance because of menopause, which marks the end of your menstrual cycle.
If you’re approaching menopause, your levels of the sex hormone estrogen fluctuate before eventually dropping as your menstrual cycle stops. This drop in hormones can also put you at risk for certain health conditions, like osteoporosis, because it affects your bone health.
With hormone therapy, you take synthetic or bioidentical hormones to balance the hormone levels in your body so you feel more like yourself again.
The team at Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc. often recommends pellets to deliver hormone therapy. With this type of hormone delivery, the team places a pellet beneath your skin that steadily releases hormones into your bloodstream.
Eventually, your body absorbs the whole pellet. It’s a beneficial option for hormone therapy because you don’t have to remember to take any pills, injections, or other repeated forms of administration.
It typically takes about four weeks with an implanted pellet to notice a reduction in symptoms of your hormone imbalance. You should experience the full effect within six months.
Hormone therapy can treat a long list of symptoms that often come with perimenopause, the months or years before your menstrual period stops entirely. If you’re approaching menopause, you might experience symptoms like:
Some of these symptoms might not seem like much on paper, but they can be very severe and affect you every day. Some of them can lead to difficulties with work or in your personal relationships.
