Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

Why do I need hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy addresses the root cause of the symptoms relating to a hormone imbalance, a condition that is common in older adults.

In women, the transition to menopause can result in a hormone imbalance as the body slows down its production of the reproductive hormones, estrogen and progesterone. This results in a variety of symptoms that can be severe enough to interfere with your quality of life, such as:

In men, the body produces less testosterone as it ages, resulting in a condition more commonly known as low testosterone or low T. This causes symptoms such as:

For both men and women, imbalanced hormones may also affect sexual health and performance. Women may experience pain during sex, while men can develop issues with erectile dysfunction. Hormone imbalances can also result in low sex drives and increase risk factors for individuals Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis.

They also take time to discuss your symptoms and how they’re impacting your life. To rule out other medical issues, your Balanced Medical Solutions provider performs an in-office exam.

The staff provides both in-office injections and pellet implantation services. You can also receive pre-filled injections, pills, and topical creams to administer at home.
