Why Women Need Balanced Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatments

Why Women Need Balanced Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatments

Women who experience hormone imbalance often see improvements in their condition with hormone replacement therapy. However, not all hormone replacement therapy is created equal. To provide optimal results, there needs to be a balance between the progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and DHEA levels used in the treatment. Here’s why that’s so important:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Hormone replacement therapy is meant to balance levels of hormones to relieve symptoms of hormone imbalance. In hormone replacement therapy for women, the two main hormones used are progesterone and estrogen. A treatment plan should include progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and DHEA in order to create an optimal balance without risking a woman’s safety. 

The best type of hormone replacement therapy for most people is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). The body does not distinguish the BHRT hormones with the ones that the body naturally produces, which means a more natural process toward hormone balance. 

Balancing Progesterone and Estrogen

You may see hormone replacement therapy referred to as “taking estrogen.” However, a hormone deficiency treatment plan for someone with a uterus needs to include progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and DHEA. The main reason for this is that taking estrogen alone can increase the risk of certain cancers in the reproductive system. It’s also important that women receive a balance of hormones that makes sense for their hormone deficiency. 

Why Hormone Balance Matters

Women often stop producing optimal amounts of each hormone around the age of 35. When this happens, symptoms like weight gain, brain fog, low sex drive and sleep issues can occur. In many cases, hormone deficiency treatment eases or eliminates these issues. 

Benefits of BHRT for Women

During menopause, just like in puberty, women’s hormone levels go through significant changes. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help manage the symptoms that come with those hormone changes, from the hot flashes to the mood swings. 

Aside from symptom relief, these are a few potential benefits of BHRT: 

  • Reduced risk of osteoporosis and endometrial hyperplasia
  • Positive impact on cardiovascular health
  • Improved mental wellbeing

If you feel like your hormones are not in sync, the first step you should take is getting your hormones tested. A balanced hormone deficiency treatment plan may be the best solution. Whenever you start a new treatment plan, especially one that affects your overall body function, you should do so with medical supervision.
