Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a treatment that uses medications to help a person balance their hormones. Balance of hormones is important for proper function of many body processes, so it's often used to treat certain medical conditions and symptoms.
HRT involves replacing the hormones your body isn't producing enough of, usually estrogen or testosterone. This can be done through injections, pills, or topical treatments. The goal is to restore hormone levels in the body to an “optimal range” where they can best support bodily functions and keep you feeling healthy and energized.
Benefits of HRT
Who Should Consider HRT?
Hormone replacement therapy can be beneficial for anyone who is experiencing a hormonal imbalance due to menopause, hypogonadism, pituitary insufficiency, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, etc. It’s especially helpful for women going through menopause because it helps balance out their hormones that are shifting due to aging. Talk with your doctor about whether HRT may be right for you if you’re experiencing any unpleasant side effects from declining hormone levels.
Are There Any Risks Involved with HRT?
Yes, there are potential risks involved with any type of hormone replacement therapy as with any medication — such as skin irritation if you’re using topical treatments or blood clots if you opt for pills or injections. You should always talk outline any possible risks with your doctor before making a decision about whether or not to start hormone therapy since everyone's unique medical history could affect safety or effectiveness when taking certain drugs.
