Therapy for Women in Dallas, TX

HRT FOR WOMEN

Hormone replacement therapy has been in practice since the 1950s.

Yet, millions of women still suffer from uncomfortable, disabling symptoms associated with the hormonal imbalances associated with thyroid deficiencies, pre-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause. Lack of sex drive, depression, anxiety, fatigue, hot flashes, poor sleep, and a negative outlook on life are symptoms that can be mitigated through hormone replacement therapy for women in Dallas and nationwide. The major hormones that typically need replacement for women who suffer these symptoms are estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, and sometimes human growth hormone (HGH). ThriveMD has earned its reputation as the leading hormone replacement therapy center in the United States. The physicians and staff at ThriveMD in Dallas, TX, view hormone therapy as a vital part of their “whole person” approach to wellness. The experts at ThriveMD will carefully compile and analyze your complete medical and lifestyle history to design a proactive healthcare regimen just for you.

What are hormones?

Hormones are chemical messengers secreted by our endocrine glands.

Our bloodstreams carry hormones to our organs and tissues to perform specialized and specific tasks. Hormone levels that are either too low or too high can prevent your body from functioning as efficiently as it should. Hormone replacement therapy can often restore women’s optimal hormone levels. Women with hormonal imbalances typically suffer from one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Weight gain
  • Loss of sex drive or interest
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Irritability
  • Depression

Testosterone

Just like men, women can benefit significantly from the positive effects of testosterone therapy. In women, testosterone helps increase bone density and formation, increase sex drive and weight loss, reduce fatigue, and help modulate cholesterol.

After a thorough analysis of your individual needs and clinical testing demonstrating sub-optimal hormone levels, our physician will prescribe a customized compound of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and/or testosterone to return your hormone levels to their optimal range. In as little as three to six weeks, you’ll begin to experience increased stamina, energy, sex drive, weight loss, and general zest for life.

Human growth hormone (HGH)

Even after we stop growing, adults still need growth hormones.

Human growth hormone (HGH) is a protein made by the pituitary gland and released into the blood. Growth hormone plays a critical role in healthy muscle, how our bodies store fat (especially around the stomach area), the ratio of high-density to low-density lipoproteins in our cholesterol levels, and bone density. In addition, growth hormone contributes to normal brain function. However, after the age of 27, HGH in women can decline by 50% every seven years. Women with low HGH levels typically suffer from one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Higher levels of body fat
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased sexual function
  • Poor sleep (night sweats, tossing and turning)
  • Less strength, stamina, and ability to exercise without resting
  • Reduced bone density
  • Changes in the makeup of blood cholesterol

After a thorough analysis of your individual needs and clinical testing, our physician will prescribe a customized compound of Sermorelin. This bio-identical hormone stimulates the secretion of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) from the hypothalamus. In as little as two to three weeks, you’ll begin to experience lower levels of body fat, better sleep, and enhanced energy, sex drive, and sexual performance. Ultimately Sermorelin can provide you with an overall sense of well-being.

Estrogen and progesterone

Estrogen is essential for muscle tone, skin smoothness, hair texture, and sex drive. Estrogen may also help prevent osteoporosis and heart disease. Bio-identical progesterone is the chemical partner of estrogen and helps stimulate bone growth and healthy heart function. Bio-identical progesterone also helps to boost mood and well-being. Estrogen and progesterone help balance each other and work together to promote optimal female health.

DHEA

DHEA has positive effects on the immune system, libido, metabolism, and emotional stability. In addition, DHEA is a powerful antioxidant, and its impact on the distribution of stress hormones underlies its importance as an age-resisting hormone. DHEA can also help improve cognitive function and protect against heart disease.

Overview of hormone replacement therapy for women

Menopause is a natural result of aging. It often causes hormonal changes that can trigger hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. Often, these symptoms are mild. But many women may want to consider hormone replacement therapy to address more elevated and bothersome symptoms. Menopause is not the only cause of hormonal imbalances in women. Surgical removal of a woman’s ovaries, loss of normal ovarian function, and overgrowth of the lining of a woman’s uterus—known as endometrial hyperplasia—can also produce hormonal levels outside of normal ranges. Hormone therapy can be administered in the form of creams, lotions, gels, skin patches, oral tablets, and rings inserted into the vagina.

Risks and side effects of hormone replacement therapy for women

Tell your doctor if your medical history includes liver disease, heart disease, cancer, blood clots, or high blood pressure. Hormone replacement therapy is not for pregnant women. Side effects of hormone replacement therapy for women may include vaginal bleeding, nausea, mood swings, breast tenderness, and bloating.

Costs of hormone replacement therapy

Discuss costs with your provider prior to beginning therapy. Costs will vary according to the type and extent of your treatment. ThriveMD offers customized membership plans to meet your needs and budget, but does not accept insurance.
