If you’re experiencing the symptoms that come along with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and trouble with memory or concentration, you may find help through our hormone therapy treatments. 

What is hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is an effective option for women who are suffering from moderate to severe menopausal symptoms. The treatment refers to the administration of either estrogen or a combination of estrogen and progesterone to replace these when the body no longer makes it after menopause, or during pre-menopause. 

Benefits of hormone therapy

Hormone therapy can provide a variety of benefits which have been life-changing for many women.
In many cases, this treatment can:

  • Prevent bone loss and reduce fracture
  • Relieve hot flashes and night sweats
  • Provide better sleep
  • Ease vaginal dryness and itching
  • Help sex to be less painful
  • Lower risk of heart disease
  • Lower the chances of getting dementia

Customized treatments

Along with the many benefits of hormone therapy, there are also risks associated with the treatment. Because of this, it is very important to determine exactly the right type of hormone therapy, dosage, and how much she will be given in order to be safe.

A woman’s age, type of menopause, how long she has had menopause, and her risk of blood clots, heart disease, stroke, and breast cancer will all factor into the right decision. Hormone therapy is a highly customized treatment that will need to be adjusted frequently.

Am I a candidate?

If you’re bothered by symptoms of menopause, you may be a good candidate for hormone therapy; however, you may not be a good candidate if you:

  • Have or had breast cancer
  • Have or had ovarian cancer
  • Have or had endometrial cancer
  • Have had a stroke
  • Have or had liver disease
  • Have had blood clots in the legs or lungs
  • Have or had unexplained vaginal bleeding
