Hormone Treatment Q & A

Why should I consider hormone treatment?

Hormone treatment is a focus of the wellness services at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine. The anti-aging specialists recommend hormone treatments if you’re experiencing symptoms that relate to an imbalance in your hormone levels as the result of aging. 

Men’s hormones fall out of balance as they get older and their production of testosterone slows down. For women, the transition to menopause (the end of your periods) also results in an imbalance in hormones, namely the reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone.

The loss of hormones can cause a variety of symptoms — some that can be serious enough to interfere with your physical and mental health. The team at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine suggests scheduling a hormone evaluation if you experience:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Pain during sex
  • Erectile dysfunction

You should also request a hormone evaluation if you have difficulties concentrating, uncontrollable mood swings, or if you feel persistently anxious or depressed.

What can I expect during a hormone consultation?

During your evaluation with the anti-aging specialists at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine, you can expect to discuss your symptoms and how they impact your quality of life. Your provider takes time to review your medical and family histories to ensure your symptoms aren’t the result of another underlying health condition.

To assess your hormone levels, your provider draws a sample of your blood. Based on the results of your test and your medical history, they can determine if hormone therapy is right for you.

How does hormone treatment work?

The team at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine uses bioidentical hormones to restore and rebalance your natural hormone levels.

Bioidentical hormones are chemically similar to the hormones your body makes. A compounding pharmacy custom-makes the hormones your body needs to stay in balance in pills, lotions, creams and other forms that deliver a steady stream of hormones directly into your blood.

By replacing lost hormones and restoring balance in your body, you can find significant relief of your symptoms and experience a boost in your overall health and wellness.

It can take time to find the right dosage and type of bioidentical hormones, and your Performance Pain and Sports Medicine provider continues working with you to monitor your hormone treatment success. They can make necessary adjustments to your therapy to ensure your hormone treatment is working effectively.

You can also contact your provider directly via phone or our email access to discuss any changes in your health or ask any questions about your treatment after starting hormone therapy.
