Who Can Get This Treatment?
Generally, older women and men can qualify for Hormone Replacement Therapy. Any woman that has had a hysterectomy may also qualify for this treatment. Treatments must be prescribed by a doctor in order to receive Hormone Replacement Therapy. During menopause, a woman’s hormonal health is deeply impacted. Menopause is a naturally occurring event in which a woman stops having menstrual cycles. During this period, estrogen and progesterone levels suffer. When these levels drop then a woman may experience hot flashes, fatigue, sexual dissatisfaction and vaginal dryness.
For men, andropause is a naturally occurring event in which a man’s testosterone levels decrease. This tends to happen during their older stage of life. During andropause, a man may experience low energy, mood swings, unexplained weight gain and erectile dysfunction. Hormone Replacement Therapy seeks to treat aging factors for both men and women. A specialized plan is prescribed to improve their quality of life.
