The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, provides patients comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic conditions and disorders. Our gynecologists offer hormone replacement therapy for patients with menopause and related conditions.
Hormone replacement therapy is the prescription of medications containing female hormones.
Hormone replacement therapy requires medication containing female hormones, such as estrogen. Estrogen therapy is the most effective treatment option for relieving menopausal hot flashes. Depending on your personal and family medical history, your doctor may recommend estrogen in the lowest dose needed to provide symptom relief for you.
If you still have your uterus, you'll need progestin in addition to estrogen. Estrogen also helps prevent bone loss. And hormone therapy may benefit your heart if started within five years after your last menstrual period.
Hormone replacement therapy may be prescribed to replace female hormones the body no longer produces. A lack in production of female hormones might be the result of menopause – the permanent end of menstruation for women typically in their 40s or 50s. Severe symptoms of menopause may include:
A lack in production of female hormones also might be a result of a total hysterectomy, in which the ovaries that produce hormones have been removed. The gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care will evaluate the risk factors, your medical history and a thorough examination to help determine whether hormone replacement therapy is a suitable option.
