Am I a Candidate for Hormone Replacement Therapy?


If your hormones are imbalanced, you will know about it – even if you don’t realize that this is the cause of your problems. Hormone imbalances can impact your mood, energy levels, sleep habits, and general wellbeing with severely negative impacts. If bodily chemical imbalances are the source of your trouble, Dr. Cheryl Geer can help you discover whether Hormone Replacement Therapy is a suitable solution for your personal needs.


What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Otherwise known as HRT, Hormone Replacement Therapy is a treatment that can be used by men and women to correct chemical imbalances within the body. It achieves this goal by using plant-sourced bioidentical hormones, meaning that they share the exact chemical and molecular structure as the hormones naturally occurring within the body, to restore normal levels.

Here at Best Self Medical Arts, Dr. Cheryl Geer will discuss all possible HRT treatments with you, including the benefits, costs, and expectations. The most commonly used Hormone Replacement Therapies are Bioidentical Creams, BHRT Patch, and BHRT Oral consumables.

HRT eases a wide range of symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances and the synthetic hormones are designed to provide the best solution for all suitable candidates.

Benefits of HRT

Hormone Replacement Therapy offers a fast-working, safe, and affordable solution. While there are several potential temporary side effects to consider, they subside within a matter of weeks, which is why most candidates should persist with the treatment for a few months to unlock the full benefits. The list of rewarding outcomes includes, but is not limited to;

  • Improve sleep patterns,
  • Prevent bone-thinning caused by osteoporosis.
  • Reduce the threat of heart disease.
  • Make sex less painful.
  • Remove vaginal dryness.
  • Remove night sweats and hot flashes.
  • Reduce the chances of experiencing dementia.
  • Lower your chances of diabetes.
  • Improve sex drive.
  • Increase general energy levels.

Some of those benefits are aimed at just men or women while others are designed to support both. Either way, Dr. Cheryl Geer and the Best Self Medical Arts team can connect you to the most appropriate HRT treatment.

Am I a Candidate for HRT?

HRT is naturally a type of treatment that can be used by anyone that experiences the repercussions caused by hormonal imbalances. So, if you find yourself feeling irritable or lethargic, it is worth testing your hormone levels to investigate your issues.

Nonetheless, the hormonal changes are often linked to estrogen and testosterone imbalances. As such, the vast majority of candidates for HRT are those that have recently undergone significant life changes. The most common are pregnancy and the menopause for women, and andropause for men. However, there are a variety of other potential root causes for major hormonal imbalances.

To have HRT, you’ll need to be an adult and aware of those side effects. Likewise, you should meet some basic health requirements. Ultimately, though, if hormonal changes and imbalances are standing in your way of a fulfilled life, Hormonal Replacement Therapies are probably a wise choice of treatment.

“My experience with Dr. Geer was amazing. She is so personable, informed, and engaged with patients. She genuinely seemed interested in getting to know me and went through my entire chart with me, making notes and getting clarifications. This is so rare these days, and with other doctors, I’ve had to reiterate information I had just written because they didn’t review it before meeting me. Dr. Geer is a 10/10 doctor, and I’ve already recommended her to several women in my network.” * -OM, Happy Patient
