Hormone Therapy Q & A

What Are Hormones?
Hormones are chemical messengers produced by your endocrine system. They travel through your bloodstream, directing tissues, organs, and body systems on their functions. Hormones regulate various essential bodily processes, including metabolism, mood, heart rate, digestion, and reproductive health.

In women, estrogen and progesterone are crucial hormones that govern the menstrual cycle. As women approach menopause, the production of these hormones declines. Menopause is officially reached when you go an entire year without a menstrual period. Although these hormonal shifts are a natural part of aging, the reduction in estrogen and progesterone can significantly impact your physical and emotional well-being.

Understanding Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy aims to restore normal hormone levels in your body, alleviating menopausal symptoms and potentially improving bone health by reducing the risk of osteoporosis.

Types of Hormone Therapy

For women, hormone therapy typically involves two types: estrogen therapy and estrogen/progestin therapy (EPT).

  • Estrogen Therapy: If you no longer have a uterus, estrogen therapy, which includes estrogen alone, may be prescribed. It can be administered as a low-dose pill, patch, gel, spray, or vaginal ring.
  • EPT (Estrogen/Progestin Therapy): If you still have a uterus, EPT combines estrogen and progesterone to lower the risk of uterine cancer. It is available in pill or patch form.

Candidate Eligibility

To determine if hormone therapy is suitable for you, schedule a consultation+. It may be recommended if your estrogen and progesterone levels are low and if menopausal symptoms significantly impact your quality of life. Symptoms may include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, urinary urgency, insomnia, and mood swings.


You may not be a candidate for hormone therapy if you have a history of breast or uterine cancer, stroke, heart attack, or blood clots. Additionally, hormone therapy may not be recommended if you experience abnormal bleeding or are at risk of developing blood clots.
