Hormone Replacement Therapy Q&A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Vitality Medical involves taking pills, applying creams or gels to your skin, receiving injections, wearing patches, or inserting hormone pellets underneath your skin. Each of these methods helps balance the hormones in your body to eliminate bothersome symptoms and lessen the risk of complications.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy at Vitality Medical may provide one or more of the following advantages:

  • Increased energy
  • Balanced mood
  • Improved sleep
  • Enhanced weight loss
  • Greater mental clarity 
  • Restored libido 

If you struggle with symptoms of aging like brain fog, weight gain, anxiousness, or low libido, hormone replacement therapy may dramatically enhance your quality of life.

Am I a candidate for hormone replacement therapy?

Your Vitality Medical provider performs a complete physical exam if needed and discusses your symptoms, medical history, medications, lifestyle, and health goals. They will also order lab testing to evaluate your current hormone levels and determine the most appropriate treatment plan. 

What should I expect during hormone replacement therapy?

What you can expect during treatment depends on the type of hormone therapy your provider prescribes. You might receive or self-administer injections, apply a cream or gel to your skin, take a pill, or wear a patch on your skin.

During pellet insertion, your provider numbs your skin, inserts a tiny pellet beneath the skin near your upper buttocks, and closes the incision with medical tape. 

What happens after treatment begins?

Over time, the hormone pellets or other treatments release a steady stream of hormones into your blood to keep your levels balanced. Follow up with our team every few months or as needed, and call the office if you develop new or unusual symptoms.

We can also address additional primary care and cosmetic concerns. We offer medically supervised weight loss, intravenous (IV) infusion therapy, cosmetic injectables, laser treatments, microneedling, body contouring, and other solutions to help you look and feel your best.
