Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy at Primecare Family Practice uses synthetic hormones to increase and stabilize hormone levels within your body. This, in turn, diminishes the unpleasant signs and symptoms associated with aging.

 

What are the symptoms of low hormone levels?

The common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Thinning hair
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle mass loss
  • Increased body mass
  • Skin changes
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Hot flashes

See the Primecare Family Practice team at the first sign of hormone imbalance to reduce unpleasant symptoms and prevent future problems.

 

Who benefits from hormone therapy?

There are numerous reasons hormone imbalance can occur, but the main one is aging. Estrogen, testosterone, and other hormone levels tend to naturally diminish with aging. Other risk factors include menopause, some medications, chronic diseases, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women, as well as stress, cancer, and eating disorders.

 

How does my doctor diagnose hormonal imbalance?

To determine if you have unbalanced hormone levels, a Primecare Family Practice provider reviews your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. They complete a physical exam, check your vital signs, and often recommend blood tests and other diagnostic testing if needed.

 

What are the different types of hormone therapy?

Some of the hormone therapy treatments available at Primecare Family Practice include:

 

Testosterone pellet replacement

Testosterone pellet replacement, as well as other types of pellet therapy, allows your provider to place tiny hormone-containing pellets beneath skin near the upper part of your buttocks. The pellets gradually release hormones into your bloodstream over time.

 

Low T treatment

In addition to hormone pellet therapy, other forms of low testosterone (low T) treatments include injections, patches, and gels.

 

Menopause symptom treatment

For women struggling with menopause symptoms, the Primecare Family Practice team can alleviate discomfort using pellets, oral medicines, patches, creams, or vaginal applications. 

Your provider tailors each hormone therapy treatment to your needs and follows up with you to make sure it works effectively. They alter your treatment plan whenever needed to keep your hormone levels within an ideal range.
