Types of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Menopause is a result of the natural decline in the reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone that can cause certain symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy can replace these lost hormones to help you regain energy, increase your mental clarity, and increase your quality of life.
Estrogen Hormone Therapy
A hormone imbalance occurs as women go through menopause and their bodies begin to produce less estrogen than they used to. This can increase your chance of osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, impaired vision, and Parkinson’s, and cause moodiness and decreased skin elasticity. The hormone pellet is added under your skin during an in-office visit to provide a consistent release of hormones and ease common symptoms of menopause.
Estrogen pellets are composed of estradiol, and can be used to balance the hormones of men and women of any age. Pellets are inserted into the hip area during an office visit with Dr. Shimer. While the hormones are absorbed, the pellet is dissolved, leaving nothing behind.
