What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormonal imbalances happen to both men and women, which is why our board-certified gynecologist, Dr. Otto Huertas, offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy at his practice, CosmeticGyn Center, in Dallas, TX.  We offer hormone-level testing to patients of all ages, but especially to people in their 30s who are already experiencing signs of menopause or andropause. We offer the following services to check for hormonal imbalances that can be treated in our office:

Diagnostics for women

  • A discussion of medical history, symptoms, family medical history, and more
  • A physical with a pelvic exam
  • Hormone tests (blood work)
  • Urinalysis
  • Diagnostic imaging (as needed)

Diagnostics for men

  • A discussion of medical history, symptoms, family medical history, and more
  • A physical exam
  • Hormone tests (blood work)
  • Urinalysis
  • Diagnostic imaging (as needed)

At CosmeticGyn Center in Dallas, TX, we look forward to serving your hormonal needs and helping you live your best life with balance during this stage.

Menopause for Women

Symptoms of menopause (like intermittent hot flashes, irregular periods, mood changes, vaginal dryness, and sleep issues) may begin for women around middle age. These symptoms can present themselves in varying degrees because of hormonal shifts in estrogen (and other hormones) that lead to menopause (or the eventual last menstrual period). During menopause, certain changes in the body may occur, including:

  • Depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Irregular periods
  • Mood swings
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hair loss 
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Painful intercourse
  • Hot flashes or night sweats
  • Inability to concentrate or "brain fog"
  • Loss of bone density (osteoporosis)

Fortunately, these symptoms can be treated by replacing diminishing hormones, which we can do at CosmeticGyn Center with bioidentical hormone replacement pellets.

Andropause for men

Beginning in the mid-30s, hormone levels (like testosterone) will naturally decline. This process is called andropause, low testosterone, or low T for men and can result in:

  • Low sex drive
  • Poor sexual performance
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Lack of concentration
  • Low energy
  • Hair loss
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Loss of bone density (osteoporosis)

Andropause can be treated by replacing dwindling hormones. Hormonal treatments for men can be expensive, require daily consumption, and in many cases, need to be carefully timed with their partner’s needs for normal sexual activities and pleasure. Controlled clinical trials have consistently reported the beneficial effects of testosterone replacement therapy.

Our HRT Pellet Placement Technique

Dr. Huertas can insert your customized hormone replacement dosage via pellet right here in our Dallas, TX office. Using a local anesthetic, Dr. Huertas will inject the pellets underneath the skin on one of your upper buttocks. Every 4 – 6 months, you'll need to come back to our office to have new pellets inserted for continuous coverage. Blood hormone tests will be required consistently to make sure your hormones are balanced with the right dosage.

Replenish Your Body with HRT

Dr. Huertas may prescribe hormone pills, patches, creams, or suppositories, depending on your tolerance to HRT and the decline of your natural hormone levels. His preferred method of treatment is with pellet therapy, which you can replenish at our Dallas, TX office every 4 – 6 months. We can help you manage your hormones during your menopause or andropause transition. Call and schedule an appointment with our CosmeticGyn Center team today.
