Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Women’s Hormone Replacement Therapy

If you’ve heard your hormones are imbalanced, you may need Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) from InShapeMD. Most people think about young bodies going through puberty and developing from a younger age when they hear the word “hormones.” Women are usually more accustomed to hearing about hormones throughout their lives in regards to their monthly cycles and fertility. There are a lot more to hormones, however, as they are very powerful “chemical messengers” which are sent out by various glands in the body including the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands.

Imbalanced hormones may indicate that your glands are involved in:

  • Regulating Metabolism
  • Controlling Reproductive Cycle
  • Signaling Other Glands
  • Immune System Regulation
  • Cell Growth Regulation

Our hormones usually peak when we are in our mid-twenties and from there, they gradually decline. In our 40’s and 50’s, the effects of decreased hormones become apparent. Women usually go through menopause around that age. Hormone Replacement Therapy works to reverse the harmful effects of decreased hormones by restoring key hormones to their optimum levels, such as HGH, testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.
