The Menopause HRT Program

Here’s what it means if you choose to participate in my comprehensive treatment program:

  • Treatment is a minimum of 3 visits

  • We baseline your current health at the time of your first visit, and make sure that all the relevant preventive testing and blood work are in place

  • I assess any risk factors in your medical history to see if hormone therapy is safe for you

  • We see how well you tolerate hormone replacement therapy treatment, and adjust dosage and strength as needed

 

what is hormone replacement therapy?

Hot flashes, insomnia, fatigue, and brain fog--do these symptoms sound familiar? If your doctor has confirmed your experience is the result of menopause, then you already know that menopause can be quite an uncomfortable and frustrating experience. There are many treatments for these symptoms including hormone replacement therapy (also known as menopausal hormone therapy or postmenopausal hormone therapy).


Menopause happens when the ovaries decrease production of estradiol and progesterone, usually around the age of 49 or 50. However, many women start to feel symptoms earlier. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) works to re-balance hormone levels during menopause by replacing the hormones that your body has stopped producing. Some HRT treatments can include estrogen and progesterone/progestin if a woman still has her uterus, while estrogen alone can be used for women without a uterus.
