Hormone Therapy Q &A

How does hormone therapy improve general health and wellness?

Hormones support every function of your body. They control metabolism and body weight, strengthen muscles and bones, and regulate hunger, blood sugar, blood pressure, and your immune system, to name a few essential roles. Illnesses, chronic diseases, aging, insufficient sleep, and a poor diet can reduce your hormone levels. Hormone therapy prevents and treats the mental and physical health problems caused by low hormones.

How does hormone therapy improve women’s health?

Hormone therapy can help women of all ages with hormonal imbalances that cause low energy, anxiety, mood swings, weight gain, and sexual dysfunction.

Women’s hormones begin fluctuating in the years before their menstrual periods stop, a stage called perimenopause. Menopause begins when the ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone, and menstrual periods cease. Women are considered post-menopausal when they have not had a menstrual period for one year.

Hormone therapy can relieve symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, and can reduce the risk of health problems that often occur in post-menopausal women.

You can have any of the following symptoms during perimenopause and for years after menopause:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • Memory problems
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain
  • Increased belly fat
  • Insomnia

Hormone therapy relieves these symptoms, leading to improved mental and physical health and quality of life.

How does hormone therapy improve men’s health? 

Many men don’t realize that their testosterone levels gradually decrease as they get older. They can also develop hypogonadism, in which the testicles stop producing adequate testosterone.

Signs of low testosterone include:

  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Muscle loss
  • Weakness
  • Hair loss
  • Weight gain
  • Memory loss
  • Brain fog
  • Insomnia

Hormone therapy to restore testosterone levels can alleviate these symptoms, improving mental health, physical health, and well-being.

What is gender-affirming hormone therapy?

The Owl & Eagle Health and Wellness team supports nonbinary and transgender people with gender-affirming hormone therapy. This therapy uses feminizing or masculinizing hormones to change physical characteristics so that they align with gender identity. Gender-affirming hormone therapy can help with every aspect of mental, physical, and emotional health and greatly improve quality of life.

What happens during hormone therapy appointments?

Your Owl & Eagle Health and Wellness provider will test your hormone levels and prescribe doses of conventional or bioidentical hormone therapy that meet your needs.

In addition to replacing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, your provider might also prescribe DHEA or pregnenolone (precursor molecules needed to make sex hormones), medications to reduce excessive levels of hormones, or combination therapies to improve hormonal health and achieve your wellness goals. They will schedule follow up visits to re-check hormone levels and assess your response to treatment, and will adjust your doses as necessary to maximize efficacy.
