Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

HRT is a highly effective treatment method that uses doses of hormones to help balance your hormone levels and regulate bodily functions. This customized therapeutic treatment contains a number of vital hormones, including testosterone and estradiol.

Hormones are essential for a host of essential body functions, including blood flow, metabolism, and body temperature. This means proper hormone function is a necessity for overall health and wellness.

What conditions can be treated with hormone replacement therapy?

Because hormones play such a major role in the body, HRT can help address a number of medical conditions. Here are just a few conditions that can be treated by hormone replacement therapy:

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Decreased libido
  • Symptoms of menopause

Hormone replacement method is an effective treatment method for overcoming sexual dysfunction. Because hormone replacement therapy mimics where your natural hormone levels should be, there’s no need for methods like surgery and medication.

What methods of hormone replacement therapy are available?

Currently, Dr. Niemczyk provides two different approaches to hormone replacement therapy. The first step in addressing your impaired hormonal functions is with a hormonal evaluation to determine your individual needs. Depending on your condition, Dr. Niemczyk might also decide to conduct a metabolic evaluation to give him the most accurate information for developing your treatment plan.   

The first approach Dr. Niemczyk takes is with hormone pellets. These tiny, customized pellets allow Dr. Niemczyk to provide you with a personalized dose of hormones that regulate your hormone levels and give you consistent relief from your symptoms. Hormone pellets mimic the functions of your natural hormones, helping to treat the underlying cause of your condition, not just your symptoms.

The second approach uses bioidentical hormone cream. Similar to the pellets, this topical cream provides a custom dose of hormones that help balance your hormones and regulate bodily functions. Available for both men and women, bioidentical hormone cream can be used to treat vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, and a variety of issues caused by hormonal imbalance.
