Hormonal changes are a natural part of getting older but it can still become a major hindrance to your quality of life. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is one of the most effective ways of overcoming the many symptoms linked to menopause and other major life changes. Dr. Cheryl Geer takes great pride in delivering transparent and personalized treatment. This starts with a consultation that offers full insight into the expected costs and much more.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?
HRT is a treatment primarily aimed at women entering menopause and men who have low testosterone levels due to aging. It aims to restore hormonal imbalances caused by life developments and the subsequent decline of estrogen and progesterone or testosterone production. Restoring the key hormones to a natural level can increase a patient’s health, sex drive, and self-confidence.
While Hormone Replacement Therapy can take many forms, Dr. Geer’s experienced team of experts focus on there main types;
- Oral HRT pills that are taken daily and can be tailored to meet your individual requirements.
- HRT creams that are applied as a topical for instant absorption to the skin.
- HRT patches that last for 7-14 days depending on your unique treatment plan.
Hormonal Replacement Therapy uses plant-based synthetic hormones that are made to offer bio-identical attributes for the most natural restoration of hormonal balance.
Average Cost of HRT
Hormonal Replacement Therapy is an ongoing treatment that is designed to help patients manage their natural hormonal declines. Dr. Geer’s responsive approach ensures that HRT treatments are regularly analyzed and updated to suit your dynamic experience.
In truth, there are several contributing factors that can influence the costs, including the type of HRT used, your geographic location, and the level of replacement that is needed. For example, estrogen-only pills are less expensive than estrogen-plus-progesterone pills. It should be noted that fluctuation between different brands exists while individuals with health insurance will see financial benefits.
Hormone Replacement Therapy Consultations Available
As a general rule of thumb, though, individuals considering HRT can anticipate the following costs:
- A monthly charge of $10-$50 for oral HRT pills. Unbranded estrogen-only creams are at the lower end while the branded two-in-one pills are at the upper end.
- Charges of up to $85 per month for creams, such as bioidentical Estrace Cream.
- A monthly cost of around $60 for HRT patches that are changed twice weekly. Weekly and fortnightly can be a little cheaper.
It should be noted, however, that Dr. Geer will need to run tests to check your hormone levels. It is a one-off exam prior to starting a course of HRT, but may need to be revisited at a later date.
Am I a Candidate for HRT?
If hormonal changes have made a noticeable difference to your general wellbeing, sex life, and outlook on the world, HRT is the best way to stop the signs of aging from taking over. It’s non-invasive, affordable, and effective with very fast results. Just remember that an accurate idea of your hormone levels will be needed first.
