Understanding the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

HRT for Both Men and Women that Help Reclaim Better Quality of Life

The process of puberty and naturally occurring hormones are responsible for turning us from young males and females to full-grown adults capable of sexual activity, reproduction, and all the physical characteristics of mature men and women.

For males, testosterone is the hormone that is responsible for giving them the ability to produce sperm, bringing about sexual maturity, and giving them adult male characteristics such as body/facial hair, a deep voice, and muscle mass. Starting around the age of 12 – 16, testosterone will begin flooding the body during the puberty phase and continue on through adulthood.

For females, starting around age 11 during puberty, estrogen plays a major role in the development of female characteristics such as breasts and hips along with body hair in the pubic and armpit regions. Estrogen also plays a major role in regulating the menstrual cycle and the growth of the uterine lining.

Naturally, once you get to a certain age, the question becomes, “What happens when those hormones stop or otherwise slow down to a rate that isn’t normal for your body?”

When dealing with a hormone deficiency such as low testosterone or low estrogen levels/menopause, it can throw the entire ecosystem of the body out of whack and make you feel unlike yourself in several different ways. These effects could be sexual, emotional, or even physical.

Symptoms of low testosterone (low-T) in men include:

  • Reduced or no sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Fatigue or feelings of being tired, insomnia
  • Reduction in overall muscle mass or lean body mass
  • Feelings of irritability or depression
  • Increase in body fat
  • Decrease in lean muscle mass

For women who are about to enter menopause (the end of their menstrual cycles), they may experience the following symptoms leading up to it:

  • Irregularity with their periods
  • Hot flashes or chills
  • Night sweats or problems sleeping
  • Increased weight gain caused by a slowing in their metabolism
  • Vaginal dryness or overall dryness of the skin
  • Thinning hair
  • Reduction in breast size

For both men and women, this bodily change can lead to a lot of discomfort and feelings of unease and discomfort, which can lead to an overall loss of confidence and/or depression. Hormonal changes, although natural, can be extremely tough to deal with, which is why Regain Functional Medicine is proud to offer solutions in the form of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) for Men and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for women.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Men

For men who are suffering with the symptoms of Low-T, Testosterone Replacement Therapy has shown amazing results in helping them reclaim their quality of life and improve their sex drive.
