Hormone Replacement Therapy in Palm Beach Gardens

Sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone are important hormones for healthy sexual and reproductive function, but also many other aspects of brain and body function. Decreasing levels of these hormones is a normal part of the aging process, and with this decrease comes some physiological and neurological changes. Our Palm Beach Gardens hormone replacement therapy supplements the body’s natural hormone levels and can help reduce some of the physical and psychological disruptions that menopause and andropause may cause.

Do I Need To See an HRT Doctor?

Among women, menopause is most common in a woman’s 40s or 50s and indicates a marked decrease in estrogen levels. In men, andropause is most common between the ages of 45 to 65 and marks a drastic decrease in testosterone levels. The goal of seeing an HRT doctor in Palm Beach Gardens is to elevate these hormones by introducing them back into the body. This can fend off some of the effects of aging that accompany menopause and andropause such as reduced sex drive, weakened bones, reduced muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, and some of the psychological effects such as depression, anxiety, and decreased motivation.

Benefits of HRT

The benefits or HRT will be unique to both men and women, and will depend on their needs. For men, Testosterone Therapy in particular is a popular remedy to restore sexual drive, overall performance, muscle building potential, and motivation. For women, Estrogen or Progesterone Therapy can help improve the effects of hot flashes, mood swings, mental fog, and reduced motivation.

Benefits of HRT For Men

Benefits For HRT Women

Sex hormones do much more than simply increase sex drive and affect physical characteristics. The brain contains a large number of hormone receptors, and these hormones can act similarly to neurotransmitters, so a sudden decrease in hormone levels can produce profound psychological effects. These hormone receptors are located all over the brain, and there are varying densities of estrogen and testosterone receptors in different regions of the brain.

In a very real sense, the brains of men and women can exhibit significant structural and functional differences, and this is due to the distribution and density of these different types of hormone receptors across the brain. During middle-age when these hormone levels begin to drop, different brain regions can be affected to different degrees in men and women, leading to different consequences for each sex. Because of these intrinsic differences in physiology, our hormone replacement therapy in Palm Beach Gardens may result in some differences between men and women.

Our HRT Services

Hormone replacement therapy can include several different hormones: estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Depending on someone’s specific physiology and needs, one of several hormones, or combinations of hormones, may be used during HRT. Additionally, there are several different ways that these hormones may be introduced by our Palm Beach Springs HRT doctor into the body including injection, patches, supplements, ring insert, and creams or gels. A client’s specific situation and needs will determine the route that the hormones are delivered, as each route is suited to a specific purpose.

Testosterone Therapy: Can be administered via intramuscular injection, testosterone patches, or a topical gel. Dosing should be exact, so medical supervision is required for all 3 methods.

Estrogen & Progesterone Therapy: The most common form of estrogen therapy is combined with progesterone, as estrogen alone can increase the risk of uterine cancer. Progesterone helps reduce this risk and a combination of estrogen and progesterone therapy can be applied by oral supplements, patches, creams, or a vaginal ring.

Estrogen Therapy: Using estrogen on its own is usually only recommended for women who have had their uterus removed through a hysterectomy. Using estrogen can increase the risk of uterine cancer, although this is not an issue post-hysterectomy.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Assessment


While HRT is most commonly used to reduce the effects of menopause or andropause, there may be other reasons that someone needs this type of treatment. Surgical procedures to remove ovaries, testicles, uterus, or other organs important in the production and regulation of hormones may require post-operative hormone replacement therapy to prevent premature menopause or andropause. Someone may also opt for hormone replacement therapy to boost mental function, muscle density, prevent bone loss, increase sex drive, or a variety of other reasons. Depending on someone’s unique situation and the particular reasons they see our HRT doctor, different approaches will be taken to help them meet their goals.

HRT For Men

Testosterone is a major hormone that influences male-specific features including sex drive, muscle density, motivation, and aggression. In middle-age testosterone levels begin to decline, and this can lead to decreased libido, lower muscle mass and density, and psychological issues including depression. Replacing this crucial hormone can help maintain a toned and muscular physique, reduce bone-loss, enhance libido, and improve motivation.

HRT For Women

Estrogen is a major female reproductive hormone that also plays a role in psychological and physical functions. Depression and memory problems are common psychological symptoms of menopause-induced decrease of estrogen levels while bone-loss and lowered sex drive are some common physical symptoms. Additionally, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and mood swings are some of the more common effects that are outwardly visible. Increasing estrogen levels through HRT can decrease the severity of these symptoms while also improving long-term health outcomes by preventing bone density loss and the risk of serious injury from falls.

Is HRT Right For Me?


Hormone replacement therapy can be extremely helpful when it comes to fending off the effects of aging, or hormonal changes that come from aging or certain surgeries. That being said, HRT may not be right for everyone. Evaluations are performed for all of our clients before hormone replacement therapy is considered as an option, and during these assessments, we can discuss the potential benefits and risks for each individual.
