Testosterone Deficiencies In Women
Most often thought of as a male-specific hormone, testosterone is a vital part of the female body. Contrary to popular belief, men and women both have levels of testosterone (women have much lower levels than men) and estrogen.
Lower than normal levels of testosterone can have a dramatic negative effect on your life. You’re never too young or too old to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
Hormone deficiencies most often occur in postmenopausal women, though it is not uncommon in pre-menopausal women. This often results in symptoms similar to menopause.
Hormone Therapy Delivery Methods
Many of the hormones listed above may be simply administered by taking a pill, administering a cream, placing a small tablet beneath the tongue or through the insertion of a pellet.
Don’t Be Fooled By One Cream Solves All
Unfortunately, Testosterone, Estrogen, and Progesterone are frequently prescribed in a single combination cream that on a first glance might seem like an easy way to take these hormones.
Unfortunately, this often times leads to suboptimal levels robbing you of the full health benefits. The medical literature is replete with important clinical trials that document the best route of delivery and optimal levels that must be achieved for each single hormone.
At Denver Hormone Health we will customize a BHRT regimen for each of our patients to achieve the maximum health benefits for each hormone.
Denver Hormone Health Offers Pellet Therapy
Testosterone pellet therapy, eliminating the need to apply creams or patches.
Pellet therapy offers a safe, more convenient way, to receive hormone replacement therapy that guarantees a therapeutic level over many months. The hormone pellets are inserted beneath the skin in very simple sterile procedure in the office. The incision is placed above the buttocks in the posterior trunk and is so small that sutures are not even required.
