Our hormone replacement therapy for women in Louisville, KY is a great for mental and physical health.

Hormones in our body control most of our bodily functions. Much like gasoline turns on the functionality of a car, hormones are chemicals in the body that travel to each organ and turn on important functions. Hormones are in your bloodstream working hard to coordinate both your mental and physical health.

Hormones kick in first thing and start digesting your breakfast efficiently, then they work all day long. They begin growing your appetite for lunch, metabolize what you eat, help your immune system clear up those sniffles, encourage you to laugh out loud at a funny movie, and then get you in the mood for sexy time when the lights go out.

When your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on so many different areas of your health and well-being. Typically beginning around age 30, women experience a natural decline in hormone production.

When this happens, women may notice a change in metabolism, appetite, mood, sexual drive, or other important areas of your life. At InShapeMD Louisville, our team of physicians are standing by to help women all over Louisville get back to their best selves through hormone replacement therapy for women.

Understanding BHRT for Women

BHRT stands for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. It helps restore normal hormone levels specifically for women. There are three main hormones that each play a part in a woman’s overall health:

Our Louisville, KY office focuses our HRT for women treatments on estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone.

Estrogen: This is a female sex hormone released by the ovaries. It is responsible for reproduction, menstruation and menopause. Too much estrogen in the female body increases the risk of breast cancer, uterine cancer, depression, moodiness etc. However, too low levels can lead to elevated blood pressure, vaginal dryness, low energy, decreased energy and an increase in belly fat. The best place is a delicate balance of estrogen.

Testosterone: Although testosterone is considered a male sex hormone, it is important to women for the growth and maintenance of female reproductive tissue and bone mass. Too much testosterone can result in acne, excess hair, irregular periods, loss of libido and thinning hair. Low testosterone levels may cause loss of muscle mass and muscle tone.

Progesterone: Progesterone is a mega-hormone that makes carrying and delivering a baby possible. All those pregnancy symptoms you had? Thank you Progesterone! In your later years progesterone levels drop, and this is completely normal. However, low progesterone can lead to anxiety, depression, low libido, osteoporosis and weight gain.  High progesterone can produce insulin resistance, increased appetite and carbohydrate craving, decreased growth hormone and a suppressed immune system.

BHRT for women is able to help you achieve the natural healthy balance of these hormones your body needs to maintain overall well-being. Often, BHRT and hormone replacement therapy for women is used to ease symptoms of menopause. In essence, it helps you to feel like YOU in a natural and normal way. This help is available right here in Louisville, KY.
