Am I a Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?

All of the symptoms associated with a hormone imbalance can also be associated with other health issues. That’s why it’s so important to seek medical attention when you are not feeling like yourself. Our team will run the tests necessary to find out what’s wrong and come up with the most effective course of treatment. In the event you do have some sort of hormonal imbalance, the hormone replacement therapy that we recommend will help you feel a lot better quickly. Here are some signs that you should see us and find out if you are a candidate for this kind of therapy.

Tests Reveal Your Hormone Levels are Out of Sync

We know how to check your hormone levels and determine if the levels are elevated or too low. That includes determining if a hormone is current near the low end of what’s considered a normal range. Once we identify the imbalance, you can rest easy knowing that the symptoms you are experiencing are not connected with a number of other illnesses. Best of all, we’ll begin the process of hormone replacement therapy immediately.

Your Temper Flares for No Apparent Reason

One sign that you need hormone replacement therapy is a severe change in temperament. It seems as if little things that never used to bother you are not major issues. Even though you try to not show it, your temper seems to flare for no apparent reason. Before your temper begins to have a negative impact on your relationships, it’s important to restore the hormonal balance and get back on an even emotional keel.

You Seem to Cry at the Drop of a Hat

If you are not ready to burst with anger, you feel like dissolving into a puddle of tears. There seems to be no middle ground for you anymore. The sadness can be so overwhelming that you want to get to a private place before the tears begin to fall. That can lead to some awkward moments at work and even at home. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy will help you feel better and not want to cry without a good reason.

Sleep Eludes You

Have you noticed a change in the quality and the quantity of sleep you get every night? There’s a good chance that your hormone imbalance is the cause. After you begin to undergo hormone replacement therapy, you once again enjoy restful sleep. That will go a long way toward helping you feel better the following day.

You Withdraw from Friends and Family

The swinging emotions coupled with self-doubt and the sense that no one wants to be around you makes it all the easier to withdraw from friends and family. Along with being confusing for those who care about you, the isolation simply makes it easier to feel sorry for yourself. Before things can get any worse, you should undergo hormone replacement therapy and regain your sense of self.

You Have No Interest in Intimacy

Perhaps one of the worst things about a hormone imbalance is no longer wanting to be intimate with the person you’ve chosen to be a major part of your life. It’s not due to any changes in the way you feel about your significant other; it’s just there is no interest in physical activity. You’ll find that as the hormone replacement therapy progresses, those old feelings of wanting some alone time with your partner will return.
