What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The hormonal structures manage numerous facets of your total well-being, including your energy levels and sex drive. Hormone imbalances may happen in men and women alike, whether as a result of stress, aging, or giving birth. Hormonal imbalances normally lead to issues, such as low energy, low libido, sleeping troubles, and weight gain. At OC Medical Tustin, Dr. Arturo Portales offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to increase your hormone levels and allow you to receive breakthroughs in your mood, sexual desire, and mental acuity. Connect with our practice in Tustin, CA to arrange an appointment.
What Is the BHRT Treatment Process?
Following a thorough exam and discussion with Dr. Portales, your personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment outline will be created. To begin the treatment, a blood panel along with additional diagnostic testing will be done to inspect your existing hormone levels. This will allow us to figure out the dosage that would be best for you, as well as the hormones that are imbalanced. Your procedure can range, depending on the variant of BHRT that is selected. BHRT is generally prescribed at our Tustin, CA practice as minuscule pellets that are introduced into the skin (pellet therapy). These hormones are chemically the same as your body's biological hormones.
What Should I Expect After Hormone Therapy?
Given that BHRT is a highly customized treatment, it's necessary to abide by any follow-up guidelines presented by Dr. Portales. Individuals could possibly experience side effects, such as discomfort, pimples, hair growth, and mood swings while the body adapts to the new hormone amounts. Throughout the process of your hormone therapy, we will check in with you to monitor your progress. The dosage level and treatment regimen can also be improved as necessary. Quite a few people in Tustin, CA see the favorable effects from hormone therapy within a few days subsequent to the beginning of their therapy.

Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQs
What causes imbalanced hormones?
Hormones are biological signals that are responsible for promoting your body's processes. Various reasons can lead to a disparity in your hormone levels. Some common factors that may cause a hormonal imbalance include pregnancy, menopause, stress, certain kinds of medications, and steroids.
How can you tell if your hormones are unbalanced?
Symptoms of a hormonal imbalance will vary, depending on which hormone is being impacted. Imbalanced hormones tend to come off differently in women than in men. As an example, women might have irregular menstrual cycles and mood swings, but men may have lowered sexual performance and a decrease in muscle mass.
What are some long-term results of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
BHRT helps the body and brain's journey toward optimal function. Balancing your hormones with BHRT can enhance your temperament, sleep, and sex drive, as well as offer a break if you feel self-conscious or depressed about your hormone inconsistencies. Dr. Arturo Portales at OC Medical Tustin will be able to provide more information throughout your initial hormone evaluation.
