Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

iMed's: Hormone Replacement Services

Classic and Bio-identical Hormone Replacement

 

Medical providers genuinely want to help those who suffer from many of the symptoms of hormone imbalance.  Often these symptoms are masked by chronic disease or are not identified as treatable, since they are often considered the natural result of aging.  Our clinic focuses on correcting abnormal levels of hormones and restoring health and vitality.  If you have felt a decline in overall health due to aging, HRT may reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.  iMed's HRT services are designed to restore your body to optimal hormone levels so you can feel your best.  

 

Welcome to iMed.MD HRT Services: Innovative Hormone Replacement Therapy is here.

 

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Hormones are an essential part of your body’s functions, and send signals to almost every part of your body. They influence many things including mood, sexual function and energy levels.  As we age, we often experience symptoms of decreasing hormone levels.  HRT is therapy that replaces these hormone. 

Hormones supplementation can come in a variety of different forms including creams, gels, pills, injections, and pellets.

I have heard this is life-changing for men, but do women benefit from HRT?
Absolutely, women like men can receive great health benefits from HRT.

Whether due to aging or life changes, like menopause, your body may no longer be making optimal amounts of hormones.  Without a proper balance of hormones, your body can go through unpleasant symptoms. Replacing the hormones you no longer produce with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can reduce symptoms, improve your health and overall well-being, and help you achieve a better quality of life.

 

Symptoms you maybe experiencing from hormone imbalance may include:

  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Night sweats
  • Low energy levels
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Decreased interest in sex‌

Having the right balance of hormones may significantly improve these symptoms.   

 

Does hormone imbalance affect Sexual Function?

It is difficult for you to function at your best when your hormones are out of balance. A hormone imbalance can effect multiple elements of sexual function including energy, mood, and erectile dysfunction.

Men with difficulties with sexual function typically have low male hormone levels, and often have simultaneously elevated estrogen.  Having the right balance of hormones can significantly improve sexual function.   

 

What are Bio-identical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones try to be as close as possible the hormones in your body.  These hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body makes, so you can absorb them easily. Bioidentical hormones are made in a laboratory and can come in different forms.

One advantage of Bio-identical hormones is that they can be administered by pellet therapy, which has many advantages over other forms of HRT.

 

What is What is Bio-identical Hormone Pellets therapy?therapy?

Bio-identical Hormone Pellets are pellets made to slowly release hormones chemically identical to the ones your body makes.  They are placed just under the skin and slowly dissolve evenly releasing hormones mimicking your bodies natural delivery.  Unlike other delivery systems, including injections, gels and creams, that can cause an up and down level effect, pellet therapy provides consistent hormone delivery to provide optimal benefits.

 

How long do Bio-identical Hormone Pellets last?

Typically, you will only need to have hormone pellets inserted 2-4 times per year
