Understanding Hormone Replacement Therapy

At Rock Creek Wellness, we strive to provide our patients with treatment options that work. When you suffer from hormonal changes due to aging or illness, our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may be able to help. Using the latest and state-of-the-art technology, we’re using BHRT to help people live their best lives when it comes to dealing with hormonal changes.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormones are responsible for almost every function within our bodies. As we age, some of these hormones can alter and create undesired side effects and common symptoms that come along with the natural aging process. But with hormone replacement therapy, we can help correct hormones by using the latest in medical advances and technology to help you live a better, healthier, and higher-quality lifestyle

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT for short, uses hormones that come naturally from plants and then alters them to match the hormones found within your body. By doing so, we’re able to alter hormones that could potentially decrease your quality of life as you age. This form of hormone therapy is used for both men and women when they experience hormone changes and are often used to ease the symptoms of things such as the following.

  • Perimenopause
  • Cancer treatments
  • Insulin resistance
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Thyroid disorders

We want to ensure that you get the best treatment option available that is going to help you achieve the results that you want. When it comes to both female and male hormone replacement therapy, we keep up to date with the latest techniques and technology so that your treatments are as effective as possible.

While individual results will vary from person to person, we’re here to help guide you through your treatment so that you can feel comfortable and confident every step of the way. We start with an initial consultation to determine whether or not bioidentical replacement hormone therapy is the best treatment option for you.

Professional Consultation

At your initial consultation, we’ll go over your desired results as well as any previous treatments that you may have had in the past. We’ll also review any medical conditions or history that may interfere with your BHRT treatment including any medications that you may be taking. All of this is to ensure that you’re going to be getting the safest and most effective treatment for you.

Your consultation is also the best time to address any questions or concerns that you may have regarding your treatment. Our certified team is here to help you feel at ease when it comes to any treatments that you may be undergoing or considering. With our professional guidance, you can rest assured that your well-being and health are in good hands.

Your BHRT Treatments

On the day of your treatment, our professionals will ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible. Depending on the treatment option previously discussed during your initial consultation and your bloodwork, you’ll relax comfortably while we administer your bioidentical hormone replacement treatment.

Below are some of the most commonly used methods of application when it comes to BHRT treatments. We’ll discuss this with you beforehand and help you select the method that is going to work best for you and your needs

  • Creams
  • Injections
  • Implanted pellets
  • Patches
  • Gels

The Recovery Process

While BHRT treatments are considered effective when treating multiple hormone concerns, the effects aren’t typically felt immediately after your first session. While some minor symptoms may begin to recede within the first few weeks, more noticeable results are typically felt within the 3-month mark of your initial treatment. Keep in mind that minor tenderness and redness around the treatment site are common and should ease within the first week of treatment.

Most patients can return to their normal routine within the first week of treatment depending on the application chosen. This makes hormone replacement therapy one of the more popular choices when it comes to treating hormonal imbalances. It’s always best to discuss with our hormone experts if you have any concerns or questions regarding your post-treatment recovery.
