As women age, their hormones naturally begin to fluctuate. Pre- and post-menopause, among other medical issues, can cause women to experience lower amounts of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This affects not only their physical and emotional well-being, but also their sexual health. At ARILEX Center for Endometriosis & Pelvic Pain, under the supervision of board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Gary G. Theofilis, offers hormone replacement therapy to women in and around Atlanta, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, and Milton, GA, as well as women located around the country, who suffer from hormonal imbalances.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Your body relies on proper hormonal balance to function on a daily basis. With age, women tend to notice a decrease in estrogen levels. This can leave your body susceptible to illness and other uncomfortable symptoms including lack of energy, low libido, and difficulty sleeping. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) are treatments that are used to help women balance and replenish their natural level of hormones.
What Are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy can help women regain their youthful vitality by treating symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, and improving their overall quality of life. HRT also offers the following benefits:
- Increased libido and sex drive
- Increased energy levels and reduced fatigue
- Improved memory and mental clarity
- Decreased body fat and ability to build lean muscle
- Improvement in overall mood
- Increased bone density and reduced joint pain
- Protects your heart, brain, bones and breast
Who is a Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Anyone who is suffering from a hormonal imbalance is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy. Standard female hormone replacement therapy is ideal for women who are experiencing sexual dysfunction and desire to improve their sexual health. This typically occurs in women during menopause. Peri-menopausal women who have undergone a total abdominal hysterectomy with a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH+BSO) usually have to have some degree of hormone replacement therapy. TAH+BSO is when the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes are all removed, which can often cause the body to go through surgical menopause where women experience menopause-type symptoms such as hot flashes and hormonal imbalances.
How Much Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Cost?
The cost for hormone replacement therapy varies as it is specific to each individual patient and their needs. During your consultation, all costs will be discussed prior to beginning treatment. ARILEX Center for Endometriosis & Pelvic Pain accepts most forms of payment, including cash and credit card.
