As you age, you might notice that you’re feeling “out of whack,” as if your body has been completely thrown off balance. From a disappointing drop in sexual performance to unwanted weight gain, hormonal imbalance can take a serious toll on your health and happiness.

But with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), you can get back on track and live your best life. Imagine having the energy to skip your afternoon cup of coffee, chase after your children and grandchildren, and even enjoy a romantic evening date with your significant other. Or what about the confidence to don a sexy bikini, hit a personal best at the gym, or take charge of your career?

Just because you’re getting older, you don’t have to give up on your youthful sense of adventure, fun, and intimacy – with HRT, you can reclaim everything you loved about your younger years. HRT is a customizable treatment designed to restore your natural vitality, replenishing the hormones your body needs to function at peak performance levels.

Here’s everything you need to know about making HRT your secret weapon for aging gracefully.

How do I know if I need hormone replacement?

If you’re experiencing any combination of the following signs and symptoms, it’s probably time to look into HRT:

  • Menopause
  • Lowered sex drive or performance
  • Fatigue
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased motivation and focus

Even if you just haven’t been feeling like yourself, or have realized that you’re slipping when it comes to performance at work, in the gym, or in the bedroom, the culprit could be a hormonal imbalance. Don’t let your hormonal levels dictate your life – instead, take charge with HRT.

Hormone Replacement Therapy: FAQs

How long after starting HRT do you feel a difference?

For both men and women receiving HRT, noticeable differences can come as soon as a few weeks of starting treatment. Within a few months, you can expect to feel younger, more energized, and have a new level of mental clarity and focus.

What are the side effects of hormone replacement therapy?

For a limited number of people, HRT can have a few minor side effects (think headaches and indigestion). Luckily, your Focal Point hormone expert is here to make adjustments to your treatment plan whenever needed, so you’ll always be ready to kick your life into high gear.

What is the safest hormone replacement therapy?

The best type of HRT depends on your individual health conditions, concerns, personal preference, lifestyle, and other factors. With our expertise, we’ll help you pinpoint the best, most-effective HRT treatment for you.

Are constant blood tests required for HRT?

Although blood tests can be a handy way to measure progress and track hormone levels, Focal Point isn’t going to force you to undergo repeated or unnecessary blood testing. Instead, we’ll simply recommend testing if needed, based on how you feel and whether you’re reaching your goals.

As a woman, will testosterone therapy make me bigger?

Although this is a common concern, testosterone therapy (when administered properly) won’t cause you to lose your feminine shape and curves. Only a small amount of testosterone is needed to correct imbalances in the female body, so you definitely don’t need to worry about “bulking up.”
