It’s virtually impossible to ignore the physical and psychological changes that occur with hormone fluctuation. This is in part due to the fact that our hormones are responsible for regulating such a long and diverse list of natural processes – from metabolism to mood stability. Once the hormones begin to shift or decline, which typically happens as men and women reach middle age, a number of unwanted symptoms may appear. To get relief from the symptoms of andropause or menopause and feel more like yourself again, join the many men and women who have turned to Dr. Otto Huertas. Below, you’ll find useful information from Dr. Huertas and the knowledgeable team at Dallas Cosmetic Center on how hormone replacement therapy can help boost your energy levels, stabilize your mood, and allow you to feel in control of your health and wellness once again.

Do I need hormone replacement therapy?

Many people assume that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) will not be available to them due to their age, gender, overall health, or another factor. In reality, HRT can be beneficial for almost anyone who is experiencing unwanted symptoms associated with declining or fluctuating hormones. In particular, men and women who are reaching andropause or menopause, respectively, can achieve life-changing results with HRT.

What are the symptoms of menopause and andropause?

Menopause refers to the point when a woman’s menstrual cycle stops and her estrogen levels fall, while andropause is used to describe the sharp decline in a man’s testosterone production later in life.

Common symptoms of menopause in women include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lack of energy
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss resistance
  • Lack of interest in sex
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Loss of bone density

Common symptoms of andropause in men include:

  • Irritability
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Brain fog or memory problems
  • Depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Hair loss or baldness

If you are experiencing the symptoms of menopause or andropause, Dr. Huertas may recommend a diagnostic workup to establish your baseline hormone levels and determine whether HRT may be right for you.

Does HRT really work?

Many men and women enjoy life-changing results with hormone replacement therapy, with some of the most compelling improvements being better energy levels, enhanced sexual performance and pleasure, and the ability to once again lose and maintain weight.

How soon will I have more energy after HRT?

Some patients report feeling better almost instantly after HRT pellets are placed beneath the skin. On average, however, you can expect it to take about 2 – 3 weeks for the effects of HRT to become noticeable. After a few months of treatment, you should begin to notice further relief from your symptoms and feel more like your younger, healthier, more energetic self.
