Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

As women grow older, their bodies produce fewer reproductive hormones including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, leading to various health issues. Hormone imbalance can result in several symptoms like hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, mood disorders, and insomnia.

Apart from reproductive hormones, thyroid dysfunction is another frequently misunderstood and misdiagnosed hormonal disorder that affects several women. Symptoms of thyroid dysfunction include fatigue, depression, weight gain, hair loss, among others. Thankfully, there are various treatments available to help women regain hormonal balance and lead a happier and healthier life.

Patches

Hormone replacement therapy with patches offers some advantages over other delivery methods. At Better Way Wellness in Corpus Christi Texas, we believe it's important to understand the benefits and potential drawbacks of each delivery method to help you make an informed decision about your hormone replacement... therapy.
One of the advantages of using patches is the convenience of “set it and forget it” dosing. You simply apply the patch to your skin andit continuously releases the hormone over time, usually for three to four days, depending on the prescription. This makes it easy to maintain a steady level of hormone in your body without the need for frequent dosing or application.Another advantage of using patches is the precise dosing. Patches are designed to deliver a specific dose of hormone, ensuring that you receive the correct amount every time. This eliminates the need to measure or estimate dosages, reducing the risk of over- or under-dosing.In addition, using patches can minimize the risk of exposing others to your therapy. Unlike creams and gels that can transfer to other people through contact, patches remain attached to your skin and do not rub off easily. This reduces the risk of exposing your family members, pets, or partners to your therapy.However, it's important to note that patches do have some drawbacks. For example, they may only be placed on certain areas of the body that are not always discreet in certain clothing. Patches can also be bulky and may not adhere well when coming in contact with water or certain fabrics.
