There are many reasons you may need hormone therapy beyond helping you through the changes of menopause. Your hormone levels can get out of balance due to:
Even if you feel healthy, you can still have a hormone imbalance as a result of aging. The production of some hormones naturally declines as you get older.
Your provider may use hormone therapy to treat several reproductive disorders.
Your provider completes a pelvic exam and runs blood tests to verify your hormone levels and determine the proper dose. Your hormone therapy may be in the form of birth control pills or other prescription medications, depending on the reason for your hormone imbalance.
There are many forms of hormone replacement therapy, including pills, creams, patches, gels and Biote® bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Biote comes in the form of a pellet which is implanted in the subcutaneous tissue and can last for several months.
