Hormone Therapy Q&A

What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?
Hormones can fluctuate over the years, particularly as you reach middle age. Women in their 40s and 50s experience menopause, at which time their female hormone (estrogen) levels sharply decline.

At around the age of 40, men experience andropause, when their male hormones (such as testosterone) start to decline steadily throughout the coming years. This hormone loss can affect you in several ways; the most common issues include:

  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Hair thinning
  • Muscle and joint aches and pains
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Hormone changes can affect each person differently, with symptoms ranging from mild to very disruptive.

What is hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is treatment to restore your body’s hormones to their ideal levels. Your hormones help control your metabolism, emotions, sex drive, sleep, and many other aspects of your health, so stabilizing your hormones reinforces your whole-body wellness.

At The Well-Nest, the providers prescribe bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Whether you need estrogen or testosterone therapy, using bioidentical hormones means getting the most natural hormone replacements possible.

The Well-Nest uses bioidentical hormone combinations from compound pharmacies (no fillers), offering superior quality and benefits.

How does hormone therapy work?

Hormone therapy starts with comprehensive blood testing. Your blood tests analyze many aspects of your health, including hormone levels, autoimmune markers, blood sugar levels, electrolyte levels, and much more.

Your body absorbs and uses the bioidentical hormones, just as if you made them yourself, to quickly relieve the symptoms of hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormones come in many other forms and include:

Sublingual hormone therapy

You place a tablet under your tongue and hold it while it dissolves. Often patients see improvement within 2 to 3 weeks of therapy, but it can take up to 8 weeks to feel the full effect.

Oral Progesterone

A capsule you take by mouth, usually once a day. You’ll likely take oral progesterone on a rotating schedule, meaning 10 to 12 days you take the medication and 16 to 18 days you don’t. It’s used to regulate the menstrual cycle and treat unusual stopping of menstrual periods (amenorrhea) in women who are still menstruating, ease anxiety, and promote memory.

Testosterone Therapy

Topical Testosterone for Men is also available and comes from a compounding pharmacy with a highly absorable base to increase the effectiveness of therapy.

Because your provider at The Well-Nest knows your exact hormone needs, they design a customized replacement plan for you.
