Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is hormone therapy? 

Hormone therapy uses plant- or animal-based hormones to replenish your body’s natural supply of hormones. Your hormone levels change throughout your life. 


For example, women experience hormone surges during adolescence and pregnancy, but their estrogen levels drop sharply during menopause. They may also experience hormonal problems with conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and primary ovarian insufficiency (POI). 


Men also experience hormone changes, with a gradual testosterone drop after about age 30. 


Hormone depletion often causes symptoms that affect your whole body. With hormone replacement, you can keep those issues from dragging you down. 


What are the signs I might need hormone therapy? 

Low hormones can affect you in many ways. Signs you might need hormone therapy include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Irritability
  • Low energy
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased mental clarity (brain fog) 

Many people experience these disruptive issues and assume they’re just part of aging. While it’s true that hormone symptoms often arise first around middle age, there’s no need to suffer — thanks to hormone therapy. 

How does hormone therapy work? 

There are various methods to deliver hormone therapy, including:


  • Pills and tablets taken orally
  • Patches placed on the lower abdomen or upper buttocks
  • Creams and gels applied directly to the skin
  • Pellets implanted beneath the skin 
  • Spray administered through the nasal passages
  • Vaginal ring
  • Intramuscular injections 


The hormone replacement therapy method that’s right for you depends on your hormone levels. Your Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center provider discusses your options and helps you find the best approach. 

Is hormone therapy safe?  

Hormone therapy, when used as directed for your hormone imbalance, is a safe and effective way to feel better and overcome your hormone-connected health issues. 


While no treatment is 100% risk-free, hormone therapy rarely causes issues. And it may offer some preventive health benefits. For example, hormone therapy can help prevent osteoporosis (bone thinning) in postmenopausal women and protect against cardiovascular disease. 


At Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center, the team focuses on getting you back to better health, and hormone therapy is an integral part of that process for many adults today.
