Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is hormone imbalance?

Hormone imbalance or endocrinopathy is a medical condition involving a disruption and imbalance in your endocrine system — your body’s hormone production.

Your endocrine glands produce hormones throughout your body, but when they produce too much or too little of certain hormones, it causes an imbalance.

Hormone imbalance can lead to a range of health problems and symptoms. During the natural biological transition of menopause, women produce less of the important female reproductive hormones.

The team at Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology provides evaluations for hormone imbalance.

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Symptoms of hormone imbalance vary depending on the type of imbalance. Symptoms might include:

  • Bruising
  • Loss of libido
  • Nausea
  • Skin dryness
  • Hair loss
  • Digestive complications
  • Reduced appetite 

At Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology, your provider can typically detect hormone imbalance in a professional blood test used to examine the level of certain hormones in your blood.

What is hormone therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is a great way to restore hormonal balance and decrease or alleviate associated symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy can supplement the hormones your body no longer produces enough of following menopause.

Hormones can be administered in different ways, such as a pill, gel or cream, injection, or a pellet implant.

Aspire For Women Obstetrics and Gynecology offers proven-successful and advanced hormone therapy. During your consultation, your provider evaluates your current medical history, your family history, and helps you decide if hormone therapy is the right choice for you.

Who should consider hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is an excellent solution for most women to treat menopausal symptoms.

To be a good candidate for hormone therapy, you should be in good overall health.

Certain medical conditions could mean you aren’t a suitable candidate for hormone therapy.

What are the advantages of hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy can provide relief for women experiencing symptoms of menopause and low progesterone and estrogen production. Hormone therapy can improve quality of life.

Supplementing estrogen can help relieve the vaginal symptoms of menopause, including vaginal dryness and pain and itching with intercourse.

Hormone imbalance and low female reproductive hormones also increase your risk of thinning bones and osteoporosis. Hormone replacement therapy can restore hormonal balance and lower these risks. Hormone therapy can also alleviate urinary symptoms.
