Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy is an excellent way to restore hormonal balance and supplement low levels of important hormones necessary for optimal body functioning and wellness. Certain medications and surgical procedures, perimenopause, menopause, and other factors can cause a hormone imbalance.

Different types of hormone therapies are available, and Emilio Juncosa, MD, FACOG can help you determine what’s best for you and discuss your options in detail. 

How does hormone replacement therapy work?

Hormone therapy typically involves taking important reproductive hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, or progestin. If you take more than one hormone it might be called combined hormone replacement therapy. 

You can receive hormone replacement therapy in various ways:

  • Orally
  • Injections
  • Pellet therapy
  • Creams
  • Patches

Emilio Juncosa, MD, might suggest pellet therapy — a more convenient method where you don’t have to think about your hormone replacement therapy for months as the pellet does the work for you.

Pellets are custom-compounded therapies. With pellet therapy, during a quick in-office procedure, your provider carefully inserts a grain-sized pellet into the fatty layer under your skin, typically in your upper buttocks area. The pellet slowly secretes a consistent level of hormones into your body. You don’t have to worry about remembering to take pills or use creams with this form of hormone replacement therapy.

What advantages does hormone replacement therapy offer? 

Emilio Juncosa, MD, FACOG provides hormone replacement therapy due to the many benefits. Hormone replacement therapy can relieve uncomfortable menopausal symptoms and the symptoms of hormone fluctuations, such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness and loss of elasticity

Estrogen replacement is also protective against osteoporosis and bone loss. Combined progestin and estrogen therapy might help decrease your risk of colon cancer.
