Hormone Replacement Therapy in Columbus, OH

Find Your Balance: The Transformative Power of Hormone Therapy

Certain conditions, surgical procedures, and stages of life can reduce a woman’s estrogen levels, which leads to persistent, uncomfortable symptoms. One way to treat this imbalance is by reintroducing estrogen to the body through hormone replacement therapy. At Endocrinology Associates, we specialize in identifying what your body lacks, and ensuring you get what you need safely, so you can feel like your old self again.

Hormone Replacement Therapy: An Overview

The hormone therapy options available to patients are hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT uses hormones that are chemically identical to the ones our bodies produce naturally, whereas HRT are not identical, but do not need to be to benefit a patient’s body — especially for women with reduced estrogen levels who are experiencing premenopausal or menopausal symptoms.

During perimenopause, or after certain procedures like a hysterectomy, estrogen levels can fall. This disrupts the body’s processes, and can lead to symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, insomnia, and bone loss. HRT is an effective way to relieve premenopausal or menopausal symptoms by introducing low levels of estrogen to the body. At Endocrinology Associates, we offer carefully tailored hormone dosages to help balance out your bodily processes and improve your quality of life.

The Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Our hormone therapy program, administered by endocrinology expert Dr. Elena Christofides, offers many benefits:

  • Effective symptom reduction: Symptoms of reduced estrogen make it more difficult to sleep, feel healthy and fresh, or even feel comfortable throughout the day.
  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases: Balancing your hormone levels can reduce your risk of developing other conditions, like osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes.
  • Improved energy levels: HRT can help reduce fatigue and improve your energy levels.
  • Enhanced mood. Symptoms of depression and anxiety can develop, or worsen, when estrogen levels decrease.
  • Revitalized libido: Restore your sexual health and well-being.
  • Personalized care: When it comes to HRT, there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

Am I A Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?

If you’re experiencing symptoms like unexplained fatigue, mood swings, a decrease in libido, or difficulty managing your weight, you could be experiencing a hormonal imbalance. Other candidates include women experiencing perimenopause or who have persistent symptoms after receiving a recent hysterectomy.
