How Can Women Benefit From Hormone Replacement Therapy?

By: Linda Spencer


When a woman’s hormones become unbalanced, it can seem like everything is just “off” – from her mood to her sleep cycle and even her appearance. Hormonal deficiencies are common as women get older, particularly as they approach menopause, but there are solutions to help women feel more youthful and more like themselves during this stage of life. At Spencer Wellness Centre in Indianapolis, IN, nurse practitioner and wellness expert Linda Spencer offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to address the unwanted symptoms of hormonal imbalance and to help women get the rapid, consistent, long-lasting relief they deserve. Curious how BHRT may benefit you? Find the answers here.

The impact of hormone deficiencies

Hormone fluctuations can occur at any age, though they are more common in older women. In younger patients, a dip in hormone levels is often temporary and may be related to pregnancy, stress, or another acute condition. In these cases, the hormones often rebalance themselves without intervention. For women with a more serious or chronic hormone imbalance, such as that associated with natural menopause or a hysterectomy, the side effects and symptoms can be much more severe. Some of the most frequently cited complaints by women with low hormone levels include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Night sweats
  • Lack of desire in sexual activity
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Difficulty losing or maintaining weight
  • Thinning hair
  • Fatigue

Is BHRT right for me?

If you are over 50 (or over 40 and have had a hysterectomy or are experiencing symptoms of perimenopause), you may be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy. During your initial consultation, our team will perform blood work to establish your baseline hormones and identify any obvious insufficiencies. Based on these results, as well as a thorough discussion of your health and medical history, Linda will customize your BioTE® BHRT treatment plan and dosage. Finally, small pellets compounded with plant-based hormones will be inserted beneath your skin. Over the course of about 3 – 4 months, the pellets will slowly deliver a steady dose of hormones, providing you with consistent relief from your symptoms. New pellets will be placed 3 – 4 times per year, and Linda will monitor your hormone levels between treatments so that dosage adjustments can be made if necessary.

What are the benefits of BHRT for women?

The potential benefits of BHRT can be truly life-changing, helping to make enhancements in your psychological state, appearance, sex life, and more. Within just days or weeks of starting BioTE hormone replacement therapy, many women begin to notice an improvement in their symptoms. Some of the most exciting results that may be possible for you with BHRT include:

  • Better mood
  • Increased energy levels
  • Stronger sex drive
  • Increased vaginal lubrication
  • Sharper focus/mental clarity
  • More restful sleep
  • Ability to lose/maintain weight and build lean muscle
  • Fuller, thicker hair growth
