Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is hormone therapy?

Hormone therapy is a highly customized treatment designed to restore hormonal imbalances. In most cases, the providers at Swor Women’s Care use hormone therapy to relieve menopausal symptoms and restore your overall health and wellness. Hormone therapy is provided in pill form or pellets.

Hormone therapy is designed to meet your specific hormonal needs. Swor Women’s Care uses bioidentical hormones that are compounded in a licensed pharmacy to match your hormonal needs precisely.

Why would I need hormone therapy?

Your hormones control almost everything your body does. When your hormone levels change during perimenopause and menopause, you may experience a wide range of disruptive symptoms, including:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Weight gain
  • Libido loss and painful intercourse
  • Incontinence
  • Anxiety and depression

Every woman experiences menopause slightly differently. You may have some, none, or all symptoms to varying degrees. At Swor Women’s Care, the team is committed to helping you maintain your overall wellness at every age so you can lead a healthy and fulfilling life.

Am I a good candidate for hormone therapy?

If you’re troubled by menopausal symptoms but in good health overall, hormone therapy could be a good option for you. Hormone therapy is especially helpful if you reach menopause prematurely or if you have lost bone mass or other conditions that make other treatments less effective.

What should I expect during hormone therapy?

The team at Swor Women’s Care provides detailed consultations and exams including extensive blood work to determine if hormone therapy is right for you. The blood work helps them understand your hormonal needs so they can prescribe the specific hormone replacements you need to restore your body’s optimal function.

When your hormones are ready, your provider give you the pills or patches to use on a daily basis. You can frequent appointments during the first several months of your treatment so your provider can monitor your symptoms and hormone levels to ensure your hormone therapy is effective.

Once you and your provider are satisfied with the effectiveness of your treatment and your overall health, you have less frequent check-ups.
