What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Copper Rock Clinic supplements hormones using Pellecome hormone products. Hormone optimization allows your body to restore hormone balance and feel your best at every age. Hormone replacement therapy replaces low hormone levels using hormones identical to those naturally produced by the human body.

Who is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy? 

You might be a candidate for hormone therapy if you develop low levels of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, or other hormones that tend to naturally decline with age. You may also benefit from this treatment if you have certain medical conditions or have had specific surgeries that affect hormone production.

To determine which hormone treatment you may be a match for, the Copper Rock Clinic specialists discuss your medical history, lifestyle, treatment preferences, medications, symptoms, and more. They complete a physical exam and order blood tests to assess your current hormone levels.

What can I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

After your provider receives the results of the blood tests, they tailor a hormone replacement treatment plan that’s best suited for you. You might receive injections, take hormones orally, or use patches, gels, oral vaginal applications for women, or subdermal pellets. For pellet-based therapy, your specialist cleans the treatment area, numbs it, makes a tiny incision, and inserts the pellets under your skin. 

During the next few days and weeks, you have fewer symptoms of hormone imbalance, feel better, and experience quality of life improvements. Follow up with your provider every few months or as needed to maintain exceptional health outcomes.
