Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Affinity Wellness 4 Life uses bioidentical hormones, which are synthetic hormones like the hormones your body naturally produces, to reduce symptoms associated with hormone imbalance. 

Hormone replacement therapy increases one or more of the following hormones within your body:

  • Testosterone
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Thyroid hormone

Your personalized hormone replacement therapy treatment plan is based on your symptoms and hormone levels.

What is hormone replacement therapy used for?

At Affinity Wellness 4 Life, Sorrentino and his team use hormone replacement therapy to reduce the following symptoms associated with hormone imbalance:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and other symptoms of menopause
  • Depression
  • Loss of lean muscle 
  • Hair loss
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Osteoporosis

Stabilizing hormone levels can drastically improve the way you look and feel – physically and mentally.

What should I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

Prior to hormone replacement therapy your practitioner reviews your medical history and symptoms and evaluates your health. To diagnose your condition and establish the most appropriate treatment, they utilize:

  • Hormone blood tests
  • Diabetes testing and management
  • Vitamin testing
  • Lipid and metabolic testing
  • Adrenal function testing
  • Various thyroid methods
  • Cardiac and heart health analyses

Bioidentical hormone replacement is available in various forms. Your provider might recommend oral medications, injections, skin patches, pellets, creams, or low-dose vaginal preparations for women (creams, tablets, or rings) to get your hormone levels back on track.

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

Your provider reviews the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy to determine if the treatment is right for you. If you experience unpleasant symptoms associated with unbalanced hormones, hormone replacement can drastically improve your quality of life.

However, hormone therapy isn’t a good fit for everybody. If you might be pregnant or experience abnormal vaginal bleeding, certain forms of cancer, blood clots, liver disease, or a past stroke or heart attack, consider other treatment options.

Don’t let chronic fatigue and other symptoms of hormone imbalance prevent you from enjoying life to its fullest. Call Affinity Wellness 4 Life for an appointment today, or use the online booking tool.
