Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Q & A

What is a hormonal imbalance?

Your hormones trigger a vast array of actions within your body, from birth through old age. Your body produces all of the hormones it needs. As you move through the stages of life, your natural hormone production declines. 

This alters the balance of hormones, which can lead to numerous unpleasant changes. Everyone has a unique experience with age-related hormonal decline. Women can begin experiencing the changes of menopause in their 40s, and men can begin to notice symptoms of andropause around the same age. Some are able to navigate these changes with ease, while others find the experience absolutely intolerable.    

What are the symptoms of hormonal imbalance?

Some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance in women include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Breast tenderness
  • Night sweats
  • Abnormal bleeding

Some of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men include:

  • Hair loss
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Low sperm count
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced muscle mass

Both women and men can experience sleep disruption, irritability, brain fog, and weight gain. If you notice these changes, schedule a visit with Dr. Orna at ReViva Wellness Center to determine if hormonal imbalance is the cause. 

What treatment options are there for a hormonal imbalance?

The best way to improve hormonal balance is through supplementation, but not all hormone supplements are equal. After considerable research, Dr. Orna chose to offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to those in her care. 

Bioidentical hormones come from plant sources like soy and yams, but share the exact same chemical structure as the hormones your body produces naturally. Other hormone replacement therapy options are created using substances like urine from pregnant horses. 

Finding the right dose of estrogen or testosterone can take time. Dr. Orna closely monitors your symptoms to ensure you are getting the right hormones at the right levels. She can adjust your treatment as needed. 

How can bioidentical hormone replacement therapy improve my sex life?

Decreased interest in sex is a common symptom of hormonal imbalance. In addition, many men encounter erectile dysfunction due to decreased testosterone, and many women suffer from vaginal dryness, which can make sex uncomfortable.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can improve your sex life by increasing your libido. It can also address issues related to sex, including erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness.
