What Are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?

In the past, a considerable amount of controversy has surrounded hormone therapy. However, the use of bio-identical hormones provides a safe and effective way of dealing with menopause and andropause, and they can be obtained from Dr. Matthew St. Laurent, a Houston-area board certified general surgeon.

How Can Hormone Replacement Benefit Me?

If you’re struggling with the effects of andropause or menopause, you may be experiencing dramatic changes both physically and emotionally. These changes are caused by an imbalance in estrogen or testosterone, which are responsible for regulating a number of functions within the body. Returning hormone levels to their normal state provides balance and can make you feel better mentally and physically.

Benefits for Women

Women have three major estrogens that occur naturally in their bodies. They also naturally produce testosterone, although in much lower levels than in men. Pellet therapy focuses on creating precisely the right blend of estrogens and may also include small amounts of testosterone. This process results in a number of benefits for women, a few of which include the following:

  • Reduces menstrual headaches or migraines
  • May eliminate vaginal dryness
  • Helps reduce incontinence
  • Decreases urinary urgency
  • Increases energy levels
  • Improves memory and concentration
  • May ward off osteoporosis
  • Improves lean muscle mass
  • Prevents excessive weight gain
  • Improves mental focus
  • Provides more energy
  • Reduces incontinence
  • May eliminate erectile dysfunction

Benefits for Men

  • Improves lean muscle mass
  • Prevents excessive weight gain
  • Improves mental focus
  • Provides more energy
  • Reduces incontinence
  • May eliminate erectile dysfunction

Other Benefits

  • An in-office procedure that requires very little time for insertion
  • No follow-up visits are required between treatments
  • Produces few side effects
  • Can be tailored for each person’s unique hormonal needs
  • Lasts longer than other hormone treatments

While the first signs of hormonal imbalances are usually noticed after the age of 40, they may actually begin much sooner. The earlier hormone replacement begins, the more benefits you will notice. Houston patients can contact Dr. Matthew St. Laurent at 281-301-1404 to find out more.
