Unbalanced hormones can make you feel like a stranger in your own skin. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or other factors, you may end up feeling tired, irritated, anxious or experience hot flashes throughout the day. These are only some of the possible side effects to your hormones being out of balance.
Hormone therapy designed specifically for You! (Picture of a woman, middle aged & smiling)
HRT is most often prescribed to ease the symptoms of menopause, but it also can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Weight gain
- Fibrocystic breasts
- Sleep disturbances
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Decreased libido
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
No two women are alike, of course, and compounding customized HRT medications can increase your treatment’s effectiveness. (another middle aged woman picture smiling – wrap text around) The advantage of compounded HRT is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual’s body and hormone levels. HRT can utilize hormones that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own.
Our specialty trained HRT pharmacist can provide a hormone evaluation for the patient to fill out. We then can assist your healthcare provider in helping interpret the results saliva tests which measure a patient’s hormone levels. We can then work with your healthcare provider and use the results of these diagnostic tests to help determine a course of treatment which will give you the exact amount of hormones your body needs.
With your healthcare provider’s prescription, our compounding pharmacist can prepare hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms, including:
- Topical or vaginal creams, gels, and foams
- Sublingual drops or troches
Once your therapy is begun, we will continue to work with your and your prescriber to make sure the HRT is working correctly, adjusting the dosage if necessary to ensure that the medication is just right for your body and you are achieving the desired results.
