Who Can Benefit from Hormone Therapy?

Hormonal imbalances can occur to anyone. The imbalance may be the result of a health issue, some sort of trauma to the body, or a number of other events. The good news is that hormone therapy can often minimize or reverse the ill effects of the imbalance. Here are some examples of who can benefit from undergoing hormone therapy.

People with Emotional Issues

Did you know emotional illnesses like depression and anxiety can be rooted in some sort of hormonal imbalance? When this is the case, the right type of therapy restores the balance and those issues fade away. Depending on the severity of the illness, it may be necessary to continue taking medications designed to control the symptoms until the hormonal balance is restored.

Men with Erectile Dysfunction

Proper hormonal balance plays a major role in the ability of a man to achieve and maintain an erection. It’s not just reasonable amounts of testosterone; too much estrogen in the system will also interfere with erections. With the right approach to hormone therapy, everything is balanced once again and erections will return. Keep in mind that the therapy may have to continue for weeks or months before the ability to enjoy intercourse is restored.

Women Who Experience Acute Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness paves the way for a number of infections as well as making intercourse uncomfortable. Thanks to hormone therapy, it’s possible to correct the imbalance and restore the body’s ability to produce adequate moisture. Once the process of proper vaginal lubrication is restored, the potential for those infections decreases and the ability to enjoy intercourse once again increases.

People Who Feel Fatigued and Cannot Sleep

An imbalance often leads the patient feeling fatigued at all times. Even with adequate sleep, the fatigue is present. Since many people with imbalances also experience sleep disturbances, it’s easy enough to suffer with a combination of feeling constantly tired and not being able to sleep. Fortunately, the right approach to hormone therapy will correct both issues.

Men Who Can’t Build or Maintain Muscle Mass

Hormone imbalances interfere with a man’s ability to build or maintain muscle mass. Even with regular workouts, no improvements seem to happen. Thanks to hormone therapy, it is possible to tone and build muscle mass again. The change may be gradual, but within a few months the benefits of those workouts will become apparent.

Women Going Through Menopause

Many people are aware of the benefits that hormone therapy can provide while a woman is going through menopause. The right approach will make it easier to maintain an even mood, minimize cramping and other physical discomfort, and help to reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes.
