Hormone Therapy Q&A
Why do I need hormone therapy?
Your hormones control the majority of your bodily functions, helping cells communicate with each other throughout your body. But between older age, chronic health problems, and menopause (in women), your hormone levels can start to plummet. It might be time to consider hormone therapy if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms.
- Unexplained weight gain
- Moodiness or memory loss
- Night sweats or hot flashes
- Decreased libido (sex drive)
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Sexual dysfunction, including vaginal dryness or erectile dysfunction
Treatments have even been effective anti-aging tools by thickening your skin, improving skin hydration and elasticity, and reducing wrinkles. Hormone therapy may also help decrease your risk of certain health issues, including diabetes and cataracts.
Which type of hormone therapy do I need?
The New Day Wellness team gets to know all about you, the symptoms you’re experiencing, and your prior health history. They’re likely going to order some blood work to check the severity of your hormone imbalance. In most cases, the team prescribes personalized bioidentical compounded products and focuses on testosterone or estradiol, for both men and women.
Bioidentical hormones are particularly beneficial because they’re derived from natural compounds and nearly chemically identical to the hormones you produce. These revolutionary hormone treatments not only work quickly, but they also cause little (if any) side effects.
Your specialty bioidentical hormone therapy treatment is delivered via pellets. During a minor in-office procedure, your New Day Wellness practitioner makes a small incision near one of your hips and inserts the pellets. These pellets dissolve gradually over an extended period, so you never have to worry about taking daily hormone medications, wearing sticky patches, or applying topical hormone creams.
How long does bioidentical hormone therapy last?
One of the many benefits of the innovative bioidentical hormone pellet system offered at New Day Wellness is that it’s long-lasting. Depending on the severity of your hormone imbalance and how quickly your body absorbs the grain-sized pellets, you can expect your treatment to last about 3-6 months. They last much longer than traditional creams, suppositories, or patches.
The New Day Wellness team usually schedules you for a follow-up visit within a few weeks of implanting the pellets, just to see how you’re responding. They can check your hormone levels regularly and if they notice that your hormones are becoming imbalanced again, they may suggest having another round of pellet hormone therapy.
