Hormone Replacement Therapy

A hormone imbalance can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. At YOURx Health in The Woodlands, Texas, the exceptional wellness team offers hormone replacement therapy to restore hormone levels and help you look and feel years younger. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book one online today.

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy increases the levels of hormones in your body that are low due to aging or other reasons. You might have low testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, or other hormones that cause an imbalance. 

Treatment with the YOURx Health team can reduce unpleasant symptoms and give you the best quality of life possible.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • Tiredness
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Increased body fat
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women
  • Low libido
  • Thinning hair
  • Skin changes
  • Depression
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleeping problems

Older age is one of the most common causes of hormone imbalance, but it can also occur because of medical conditions, medications, and past surgeries, among other causes.

Hormone replacement therapy helps boost your energy levels. It also aids in healthy weight management, increases lean muscle mass, boosts hair growth, improves sexual functioning, and enhances your overall well-being. 

Is hormone replacement therapy right for me?

To find out if hormone therapy is the right choice for you, your wellness specialist discusses your medical history, reviews your symptoms, checks your vital signs, and completes a physical examination. 

They use a simple blood test to assess your hormone levels, and then they develop a treatment plan that’s best for you.

What are the different types of hormone replacement therapy?

Some of the many types of hormone replacement therapy available to you, depending on your unique needs, include:

  • Injections
  • Progesterone medications
  • Thyroid medications 
  • Creams
  • Pellets

Your wellness provider can insert a tiny hormone pellet underneath your skin near your upper buttocks. The pellet slowly releases hormones into your bloodstream over time to keep your levels within a normal range. Your specialist replaces the pellet every few months or as needed.

What happens after my treatment?

Over the next few weeks and months after starting hormone replacement therapy, you can expect to have more energy and feel better overall. 

The YOURx Health team checks your hormone levels periodically to ensure that your treatment works the way it should. They make changes to your treatment plan as needed to maximize your quality of life.
