What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
City Health Services takes enormous pride in improving our patients’ overall health and lives. We understand that “health” is a very ambiguous term. The areas of health that we introduce to our anti-aging lineup of services focus on hormone balancing with testosterone replacement therapies and weight management with Semaglutide.
HRT stands for Hormone Replacement Therapy, a medical treatment involving taking hormones to replace the hormones the body no longer produces or produces in insufficient quantities.
HRT is often used to alleviate symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and mood swings, by replacing the estrogen and progesterone hormones that decline during this time. It can also treat other conditions related to hormonal imbalances, such as osteoporosis, which occurs when bones become brittle and fragile due to decreased estrogen levels.
HRT can be administered in various forms, including pills, patches, gels, creams, and injections. The specific type of hormone replacement therapy and dosage will depend on the individual’s needs and health status and should be discussed with a qualified healthcare provider. It is important to note that HRT may carry some risks, and women considering HRT should be informed of both the potential benefits and risks associated with the treatment.
