Our hormones play a vital role in our day to day lives. Our mood, energy levels, and mental wellbeing are all strongly affected by our testosterone or estrogen levels.

If your hormones are imbalanced or deficient, hormone replacement therapy may be the answer for you. It’s important for men and women to ensure their hormone levels are stable. 

Hormone replacement therapy can make sure you don’t have to experience nasty symptoms and improve your quality of life.

What are the most common forms of hormone replacement therapy? Keep reading to learn more.

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause 

Menopause can be an extremely difficult period during a woman’s life. For some women, they don’t experience any negative symptoms during menopause. In fact, some are relieved they no longer will be getting their period.

For others, however, menopause can cause a deficiency in estrogen levels. This means the female hormone level is lower than it usually should be. This can mean some nasty symptoms for the woman going through menopause. 

Low estrogen levels in women can result in the following detrimental symptoms:

  • Pain during sex
  • An increase in urinary tract infections due to a thinning of the urethra.
  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flushes
  • Mood swings 
  • Pain in breasts
  • Headaches 
  • Depression

The symptoms experienced from a lack of estrogen, such as vaginal discomfort, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness, can be extremely physically painful and negative for the woman’s self-esteem.

Hormone replacement therapy re-stabilizes estrogen levels in women experiencing menopause. This means that symptoms will subside, and the patient can get back to getting on with their lives. Pain-free.

The most common form of taking hormone replacement therapy is by ‘pill and patch.’ Hormone replacement therapy can also be taken in a vaginal ring, gel, or spray. 

Stress Can Cause an Imbalance in Your Hormones

An over-exposure to stress in your life may cause an imbalance in your hormones. Stressful situations such as a bad breakup or a loved one’s death may onset depression and anxiety. 

A low level of estrogen or testosterone only reinforces the depressive, low-energy state of mind that stressful situations can put you in in the first place.

Hormones give us energy and the will to be active every day. Without them, we are lazy and unmotivated. Hormone replacement therapy can be a good solution for men and women suffering from a hormone imbalance caused by stress.
