Everyone has hormones. These naturally produced chemicals work constantly to regulate your body’s various systems and keep everything inside of you functioning smoothly.
You’ve probably heard of different types of hormones before, like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Men and women typically have different levels of these hormones as a healthy baseline.
Both men and women experience somewhat predictable changes in hormone levels over the course of a lifetime. Hormones can also become imbalanced for other reasons.
If your hormones are out of balance, you might notice uncomfortable, life-limiting side effects, including libido changes, weight gain, and emotional impacts. That’s where hormone replacement treatment comes in.
At BCS Medical of Bryan, Texas, our experienced care team offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to patients of all genders. Our regenerative medicine specialists can assess your hormone levels and recommend the right regimen to rebalance your body and, potentially, the rest of your life as well.
Why could men need BHRT?
Men’s hormone levels increase with puberty, and then start to gradually decline later in life. Testosterone technically starts to decline for most men in their 30s, but you might not notice symptoms of low testosterone until your 40s or 50s.
Men with hormonal imbalances may notice signs and symptoms including low libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), anxiety, mood issues or irritability, and fatigue.
With BHRT, you can supplement declining hormone levels with chemicals that have the same structure as your naturally produced hormones. Your BHRT treatments get your system back to normal, providing the same stimulus your body used to use, to get the same, familiar responses. Treatments to restore testosterone are accompanied with supporting Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG).
Hormone replacement treatment for women
Women go through hormonal cycles every month, until menopause, which comes with its own hormonal swings and struggles. Depending on age, women may need support stabilizing a monthly cycle. You can use BHRT to treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS), fibroids and endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and even headaches and anxiety.
Many female patients can also benefit from BHRT to smooth the transitional years of menopause. Hormone replacement can ease your symptoms like hot flashes and sleeplessness, and restore your equilibrium, comfort, and even your sexuality.
At BCS Medical, we can assess your hormone profile to let you know about potential hormone imbalances, and recommend the right combination of hormones to rebalance your system. BHRT can address symptoms of a wide variety of conditions. Leveling out your hormones gives you some protection against serious health complications, including heart disease, hypertension, and reproductive cancers.
