Hormonal Replacement Therapy
As gynecologists we are concerned when your body is not producing enough of the hormones that you need to live a full and active lifestyle. Hormonal replacement therapy is not simply “getting a shot or pellets”. Such management requires personalized assessment. The patient’s family history and past medical history must be considered along with the risks and benefits of using hormones to optimize personal well-being and satisfy your specific medical needs. Hormonal management begins with a comprehensive examination, laboratory evaluation to check hormone levels, often a screening mammogram, and in some cases a pelvic ultrasound if deemed necessary. If you are concerned about your hormonal status, we encourage you to make a problem visit for evaluation.
