Hormone Replacement Therapy
At La Vida Sana MD we offer hormone therapies in a safe, supportive and monitored environment tailored to your needs. Providing HRT for both Men and Women's health.
Why is Hormone Replacement Therapy Important?
For women, as women age, the body will naturally begin to produce fewer hormones. Women will typically see a drop in production in the early 30s. Most will see a huge drop in estrogen and progesterone during menopause.
The sex hormones progesterone, estrogen and testosterone play a key factor in how the body functions. When there is an imbalance of one or more hormones, the body will experience significant problems.
As for men, testosterone is the primary sex hormone. This hormone helps men maintain proper bone density, sex drive, sperm production, muscle mass and strength, regular fat distribution, and a healthy growth of facial and body hair.
What is a Hormone Imbalance?
A hormone imbalance occurs when there is either too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Since hormones play a key role in regulating major body processes, hormone imbalances can negatively impact the body. Even the smallest imbalance can be felt.
What are the Signs of a Hormone Imbalance in Women?
Many women struggling with a hormone imbalance will experience the following symptoms:
Decreased sex drive
Discomfort during intercourse
What are the Signs of a Hormone Imbalance in Men?
