Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment for menopausal symptoms.

As you transition into menopause, your hormone levels fluctuate and cause a number of different symptoms. The goal of hormone replacement therapy is to help rebalance your hormones to reduce these symptoms.

Women typically begin their transition into menopause in their 40s. On average, women in the United States reach menopause — which is when you’ve gone 12 consecutive months without your period — around age 51.

There are two types of hormone replacement therapy:

  • Estrogen only
  • Estrogen and progestogen

If you’ve had a hysterectomy, the team at My OB/GYN Specialists may prescribe the estrogen only hormone, while estrogen with progestogen is prescribed to women with a uterus to protect against endometrial cancer.

Hormone replacement comes in a variety of forms as well, including creams, pills, patches, and nasal sprays.

Hormone replacement therapy can treat a number of your menopausal symptoms, such as:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness or low sex drive
  • Bone loss
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Moodiness or depression
Hormone replacement therapy is safe for most women when prescribed the lowest dose possible for the shortest period of time, which is why it’s vital to consult with the women’s health experts at My OB/GYN Specialists.

They only recommend hormone replacement therapy after obtaining your health history and completing a thorough examination. The team of women creates a personalized plan that matches your specific health needs to relieve symptoms.

You may not be a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy if you have a history of heart disease, breast cancer, or liver disease.

If you have concerns about traditional hormone replacement therapy, the team at My OB/GYN Specialists offer a more natural option with bioidentical hormones. These hormones are created from yams or soy and act like the hormones in your body to help relieve menopausal symptoms.

The team uses BioTE® pellets, which are custom-designed to specifically match your hormonal needs. The pellets are implanted under your skin to provide a consistent delivery of hormones to help maintain balance, which provides better, more consistent control over your symptoms.

“This review is for Dr. Alejandra Angel. She is an amazing doctor. She took good care of me during my pregnancy, was very patient, I never felt rushed during my appointments, she always listened and explained very well any questions that I had. She made my first delivery experience a nice one. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who would like to have a nice and smooth experience. If you are looking for a doctor who genuinely cares about you and your baby, you should look no further. She is the one to go. I really like her and her attitude. She is a great doctor.”
